With the Walt Disney World Resort being as large and as expansive as it is, there are countless ways to “upgrade” your Walt Disney World vacation. From Disney PhotoPass to Disney Genie+, guests can enhance their stay in a variety of ways, but there’s nothing quite like the Disney Dining Plan.

What started as a way to streamline guests’ itineraries, allowing them to map out their meals, turned into one of the most notorious and popular Walt Disney World vacation upgrades, with a price to match. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in early 2020, Disney shuttered this program, leaving it abandoned for quite some time. The Disney Dining Plan remained unavailable for years, leaving fans questioning if or when it would even return.

However, these packages were brought back at the start of 2024, allowing guests to quite literally eat their hearts out. The Disney Dining Plan is broken up into two distinct offerings: the Disney Quick Service Dining Plan and the Disney Dining Plan. The options guests choose depend on what type of cuisine they want to experience during their vacation, with the quick-service option being more popular with on-the-run families. The regular Dining Plan is a great choice for guests who want to relax and take their time, enjoying the delicious sit-down restaurants scattered throughout Walt Disney World.

  1. How can a middle class family of 4 afford a Disney vacation. Priced out a moderate resort, tickets and meal plan for 5 days and with the exchange rate it’s over $10,000 Canadian. . Disney is the most expensive place on earth mot the most magical place any more
