5. Disney Dining Plan & refillable mugs
The Disney Dining Plan allows you to pre-pay for the cost of your meals and snacks during your trip with allotments for each type of meal. If you choose the right restaurants and entrees, the plan could result in a 35% savings over paying out of pocket--but this benefit is only available as part of a package when you stay at a Disney resort. Refillable mugs come with the plan but may also be purchased separately for resort guests. These mugs entitle you to unlimited refills of soda at your resort throughout your stay.
4. Disney cast members at your resort
If you are planning your first trip to the Walt Disney World Resort this point can be especially helpful. Disney resort guests are surrounded by the magic 24/7 and part of what this means is that Disney cast members will always be on hand to help with any questions you may have about your Disney vacation.
