The new year has arrived, which means that several very welcome changes are coming to the Walt Disney World Resort, and one of the most exciting changes is the long-awaited return of the Disney Dining plan.

Disney World Quick-Service dining plans run $57 for adults and $24 for kids (ages 3 to 9), and the Disney Dining plan, which includes one meal at a table-service dining venue, runs $94 for adults and $30 for kids.

  1. These non discounted room ‘free’ dining plans do not seem worth it. There are so many good discounts on rooms and packages that it costs less to get another special and pay for your food

  2. I would rather have the deluxe dining option come back before the free dining promos

  3. I’m a DVC member and an annual Passholder.

    We pay a lot for both of the above and we get
    NO discounts on these dining packages.

    It would be nice if Disney rewards a free Dining package once a year
    for guest who already spends a lot.

    • I agree 100%. As an annual passholder we go at least 4-5 times during the year and stay on premises hotels. We should get some better benefits. Also they should bring back Tables in Wonderland.
