Let’s face it: Walt Disney World is expensive. Between the price of travel, Disney resort hotels, and Disney park tickets, it can feel overwhelming to plan a family vacation. However, there are actually a lot of great cheap Disney snacks available throughout the Walt Disney World parks and resorts that can save you money on your next trip!
There are a lot of changes coming to the Walt Disney World Resort in 2024, but one of the biggest is the return of the Disney Dining Plan. Guests can already add the dining plan to existing reservations or new reservations for dates starting on or after January 9, 2024.
Two new plans are available: the Disney Dining Plan and the Quick Service Dining Plan. Both plans offer one snack credit/nonalcoholic drink per night of stay and one resort-refillable mug per Guest. The Disney Dining Plan additionally offers 1 table service meal and one quick service meal per night of stay, while the Quick Service Dining Plan offers two quick service meals per night of stay.
