18 Restaurants That Will Affect Your Disney Dining Plan
We found out not too long ago that the Disney Dining Plan will be returning to Disney World in 2024! This is very exciting news for everyone that loves the prepaid dining option.
We’ve slowly been learning more and more details, and today, Disney released a list of all the restaurants that will be included in the dining plan.
But, not all of these restaurants work the same when it comes to meal credits. So, we’re going to talk about restaurants and dining experiences that require 2 table service meal credits to be exchanged for a single dining experience. Let’s go!
2-Credit Dining Plan Meals
Fine/Signature Dining Restaurants
First up, we have the fine or signature dining restaurants at Disney World. All of these include 1 entree, 1 nonalcoholic beverage (alcoholic if you’re 21 and over), and 1 dessert for the price of 2 table service dining credits.
There aren’t many restaurants that qualify for this category inside the parks. In Hollywood Studios, you have Hollywood Brown Derby…
…in EPCOT there’s Le Cellier in the Canada Pavilion…
…and in Animal Kingdom, you have Tiffins. All 3 of these spots are signature dining experiences.
In Disney Springs, the restaurants that fall into this category are The BOATHOUSE, Jaleo, Morimoto Asia, and Paddlefish.
…Flying Fish at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn…
…Jiko at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge…
…Topolino’s Terrace at Disney’s Riviera Resort…
…and Yachtsman Steakhouse at Disney’s Yacht Club.
Another experience is some character dining options. The majority of character dining at Disney World is only 1 table service credit, but there are a few that require 2.
These restaurant experiences include dinner at Be Our Guest and Fairytale Dining at Cinderella’s Royal Table in Magic Kingdom…
…Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall (Lunch and Dinner only) at EPCOT…
…and Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.
Dinner shows also require 2 table service credits for 1 meal.
This means family-style dining with live entertainment at a themed dinner show like Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue at Fort Wilderness.
Private In-Room Dining
Finally, we have private in-room dining. If you’re staying at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, you can get private in-room dining in your hotel room.
The Disney Dining Plan includes 1 entree, 1 dessert (with lunch and dinner), and 1 nonalcoholic beverage (or alcoholic beverage for people 21 and over). You will need to use 2 table service meals for each person dining to redeem this dining option.
