Guests will be able to use the Disney Dining Plans starting January 9, 2024, but for trips planned on or after that date, you can already add the Disney Dining Plan to a new or existing reservation.

Upon the Dining Plan’s return, two options will be available to Guests: the Disney Dining Plan and the Quick Service Dining Plan. The Disney Dining Plan includes credits for Table Service meals in addition to the Quick Service meals and snack credits included in both plans.

We have yet to get all the details about the dining plans’ return, but Disney has released which restaurants will accept each plan. Currently, at EPCOT, 32 restaurants will accept the Disney Dining Plan as of January 9, 2024. This is the current list of restaurants:

The returning Disney Dining Plan will offer Guests two Table Service meal credits, one Quick Service meal credit, and one snack/nonalcoholic beverage credit each day. Of the restaurants listed above, all of them will accept a snack or meal credit from the Disney Dining Plan. Still, only certain restaurants will accept Table Service meal credits: Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, Biergarten Restaurant, Chefs de France, Coral Reef Restaurant, Garden Grill Restaurant, La CrĂȘperie de Paris, La Hacienda de San Angel, Le Cellier Steakhouse, Nine Dragons Restaurant, Rose & Crown Dining Room, San Angel Inn Restaurante, Spice Road Table, Teppan Edo, Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar, Tutto Italia Ristorante, and Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria. Some restaurants, like Akershus Royal Banquet Hall and Le Cellier Steakhouse, require two Table Service meal credits for one meal.

When we look at the best Table Service restaurants for the Disney Dining Plan, some of our favorites include Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, Garden Grill Restaurant, Le Cellier Steakhouse, Spice Road Table, and Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria. Even though Akershus Royal Banquet Hall requires two Table Service credits, the restaurant offers a beloved Disney Princess Storybook Dining experience. Garden Grill is an excellent character dining experience that does not require an extra meal credit and features farm-to-table entrees. Le Cellier Steakhouse offers a cozy atmosphere and delicious entrees, perfect for a romantic date night. Spice Road Table and Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria also feature delicious entrees with family-friendly atmospheres.

About Megan Losey

As a Disney foodie, I love writing about Disney food and snacks. Some of my favorites are the Carrot Cake Cookie from Trolley Car Cafe, the Mickey Beignets from Port Orleans French Quarter, and the Apple Blossom from Port Orleans Riverside. When I'm visiting the parks, you can find me on Main Street taking in the good vibe of Magic Kingdom or relaxing with a drink at the Polynesian watching the fireworks from the beach. As a previous Cast Member, I will always have a special place in my heart for the Magic Kingdom, especially Main Street U.S.A.
