As many avid Disney travelers know the Disney Dining Plan is a way to enhance our upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. By adding the Disney Dining Plan to our vacation, we are able to enjoy everything - room accommodations, theme park admission and food - for one package price. It is an enhancement to the already fabulous Magic Your Way Ticket and is a must have, especially if you want to enjoy some of the fancier restaurants at Disney.
So, how do you use the Disney Dining Plan? Simple. A certain amount of meals and snacks (dependent upon the package you purchase) are added to your Disney room key. You swipe the card every time you make a meal or snack purchase and it deducts the entitlements as you go. Plan only works are participating Disney dining locations.
