After a long wait, the Disney Dining Plan is coming back to Walt Disney World, and we want you to be prepared! Here at DisneyDining.com, we’re ready to answer all your questions about the Disney Dining Plan. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite restaurants in Magic Kingdom that accept the Disney Dining Plan.

Disney hasn’t released all the details about the new Dining Plan changes, but they have released which restaurants will accept the plan when it first returns. Two plans are returning, the Quick Service Dining Plan and the Disney Dining Plan.

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

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, but only certain restaurants will accept Table Service meal credits (Be Our Guest, Cinderella’s Royal Table, The Crystal Palace, The Diamond Horseshoe, Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen, Liberty Tree Tavern, The Plaza Restaurant, and Tony’s Town Square Restaurant). Some restaurants like Be Our Guest and Cinderella’s Royal Table 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 are The Crystal Palace, Liberty Tree Tavern, and Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen. The Crystal Palace is a fantastic Character Dining experience that only uses one Table Service meal credit, as opposed to Cinderella’s Royal Table or Be Our Guest. Liberty Tree Tavern and Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen are great dining options with unique theming and excellent food and ambiance. Liberty Tree Tavern serves Thanksgiving-style dinner daily, offering comfort food and a relaxing atmosphere. Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen transports Guests into the home of Dr. Albert Falls with immersive theming and delicious dining options.

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.
