FAQ - 2010 DDP, DxDP and QSDP Everything you always wanted to know

Welcome to the 2010 Disney Dining Plan FAQ. The Restaurant Board team has been working on creating this to answer a majority of the Commonly Asked Dining Plan Questions.

This is a work in progress. As updates occur, they will be posted. If you have any updates or corrections, please post on this thread.

See the end of this post for the 2011 dining plan and premium/platinum package prices.

Disney Dining package add ons are available for the following:

Magic Your Way Package with Dining

The Disney Dining Plan is a prepaid Meal Plan available with the purchase of a Magic Your Way Plus Dining Package includes a resort room plus at least a one-day base ticket. According to Disney’s literature, everyone in the room must be on the same package and ticket options. Packages and package components, including dining entitlements, are nontransferable. All dining entitlements expire at midnight on day of checkout.

AP holders
Walt Disney World annual passholders may purchase a room/dining package without the requirement to purchase tickets. This is still considered a package reservation and is subject to the same deposit, cancellation and change fees as other packages. Annual passholders may be able to apply an annual passholder room discount when booking this package. The package requires the presentation of one adult annual pass at check-in.

Disney Vacation Club (DVC) members may purchase the dining plan with any reservation on Disney Vacation Club points. They may also purchase a dining plan on cash reservations made through DVC Member Services. DVC members must add the dining plan to their reservation no later than 48 hours before checking in, and it is paid for at check-in. All persons listed on the reservation must purchase the same dining plan for the length of the reservation.

DVC members making reservations through Member Services are ineligible for the free dining promotion, which requires a room plus tickets package reservation.

Walt Disney World offers three different dining plans, and two dining and more plans in 2010 - click on the hyperlink to see plan specifics

The Quick Service Dining Plan (QSDDP) entitles each guest to receive 2 Quick Service or Counter Service (CS) credits and 2 Snack credits per nights stay.

EXAMPLE: Sunday to Saturday stay (6 nights) allots 12 CS and 12 Snack credits per guest age 3 and over. This plan also includes one Resort Refillable Mug per person good for unlimited refills of beverages at resorts only for the length of stay. Beverages usually include soft drinks, coffee, tea and hot chocolate.

The regular Disney Dining Plan (DDP) entitles each guest to receive 1 Table Service (TS) credit, 1 Counter Service (CS) credit and 1 Snack credit per night’s stay.

EXAMPLE: Sunday to Saturday stay (6 nights) allots 6 TS, 6 CS and 6 Snack credits per guest age 3 and over. NOTE: This plan does not include a Resort Refillable Mug.

The Deluxe Disney Dining Plan (DXDP) entitles each guest to receive 3 meal credits and 2 snack credits per night’s stay. Deluxe meal credits can be used for either table service or counter service.

EXAMPLE: Sunday to Saturday stay (6 nights) allots 18 meal credits and 12 snack credits per guest age 3 and over. This plan also includes one Resort Refillable Mug per person good for unlimited refills of beverages at resorts only for the length of stay. Beverages usually include soft drinks, coffee, tea and hot chocolate.

Adult credits are assigned to guests age 10 and older. Child credits are for guests age 3-9. Children age 2 and under do not receive dining
credits. Adult and child credits are not interchangeable. Children must order from a child’s menu at restaurants where one is available. However, generally speaking an adult is allowed to use an adult entitlement to order a children's meal from the child's menu.

One nice feature about the dining plans is how the credits can be used. Credits are not limited to your daily allotment, and you may use multiple credits per day. (As long as there are enough remaining credits of course) Those on the Regular Dining Plan or Deluxe Dining Plan can even choose to exchange two table service credits for a show or signature dining experience if they

• Artist Point (Wilderness Lodge)
• California Grill (Contemporary Resort)
• Cinderella’s Royal Table character breakfast/lunch/dinner with photo package (Magic Kingdom)
• Citricos (Grand Floridian)
• Flying Fish Café (Boardwalk Inn & Villas)
• Hollywood Brown Derby (MGM Studios)

Dinner Shows requiring 2 TS credits per person:

• Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue (Fort Wilderness)
• Mickey's Backyard Barbecue (Fort Wilderness)

These brochures listed on the Disney World website have the most up to date list of participating restaurants.

DDP Links Thread This includes DDP Price Comparisons, as well as a spreadsheet that will assist you in calculating your best deal (DDP, TIW or OOP)

• Tangierine Cafe - limits your dessert to Baklava only.
• The Lunching Pad - no dessert
• Teppan Edo - The salad isn't included as part of the entree - can be ordered as an appetizer on DxDDP.
