Here we will be going over how the Disney Dining Plans work and what options you are offered. Going to Disney World is a large expense, and buying food at the parks takes a large amount of your budget. The dining plans offer prepaid dining while only paying for table service gratuities.
You may be wondering why you would pay in advance when you don’t know what you are planning on spending on your meals. You aren’t the only one thinking that, however the Disney Dining Plan offers affordable plans to fit your style of experience and also offer free dining periods for your stay. These free dining periods are found throughout the year at different times. There are requirements for your stay; the amount of nights for your trip, staying on site, etc. When booking your trip, look for these free dining periods, they tend to be the same week as prior years. You can always adjust your trip dates to accommodate the free dining period.
