Update 10/16/10 – WDW has released free dining for many dates in 2011!
Update 12/15/10 – New Dining Plan Brochures added including all restaurants previously included in Downtown Disney and Epcot, plus Via Napoli and La Hacienda. This should be the last update on the brochures for 2011.
Walt Disney World has announced 2011 dining plans, which include some small changes. Please find below a quick overview of all the available dining plans for Walt Disney World along with a downloadable brochure for each with more in depth information.
Please note, as you look at the brochures, many of the restaurants that will be included for 2011 are not currently listed on the brochures. This happens every year, as the agreements and contracts for non-Disney restaurants are negotiated each year when it comes to inclusion in the dining plans. As 2011 approaches, more restaurants will be included, and the list should be similar to 2010. Updates will additional restaurants or changes will be posted here.
Quick Service Dining Plan
Initially introduced in 2009, this plan has only changed slightly for 2010. The Quick Service dining plan appears to be a fantastic option for park guests who don’t want to be tied to eating at a sit down restaurant each day.
The Quick Service Dining Plan includes, per person, per night of your stay:
- Two counter service meals
- Two snacks
- One refillable resort mug
The cost of the Quick Service dining plan is $34.99 per night per adult (10 and older), and $11.99 per child (3 – 9).

Disney Dining Plan
Not much has changed from the Disney Dining plan of 2010, except a small increase in price. Disney has also added the appetizer back, but only for kids 3 – 9. One change many people will notice is Le Cellier will switch to a signature restaurant starting March 1, 2011 for dinner only.
The Disney Dining Plan includes, per person, per night of your stay:
- One table service meal
- One counter service meal
- One snack
Please note gratuities are not included on the table service meals. Table service meals can also be used for signature restaurants, dinner shows, private dining or pizza delivery (these typically run 2 table service meals per person). More information can be found in the brochure.
The cost of the Disney dining plan is $45.99 to $47.99 per night per adult (10 and older), and $11.99 to $12.99 per child (3 – 9). The Disney Dining plan is priced based on your travel dates, and is higher priced during the following peak times:
- February 17 – 26, 2011
- March 11 – April 30, 2011
- June 3 – August 13, 2011
- December 21 – 31, 2011
It appears as though the cost of the dining plan is based on the day you check in, so if you check in one a date when the Dining plan is the cheaper price, and your vacation carries over into one of the higher priced times, you will pay the lower price for your entire stay.

Disney Deluxe Dining Plan
Again, nothing has changed from the Deluxe Dining Plan of 2010, with the exception of a small price increase.
The Disney Deluxe Dining Plan includes, per person, per night of your stay:
- Three meals, which can be used for either counter service or table service meals
- Two snacks
- One resort refillable mug
The policy is the same for table service meals on the deluxe dining plan (gratuities not included, can be used for signature restaurants, etc.). If you use the meal credits towards table service meals, your meal will also include an appetizer for each person, in addition to the entree, dessert and drink.
The cost of the Disney Deluxe dining plan is $78.99 per night per adult (10 and older), and $21.99 per child (3 – 9).
