2014 Disney World Dining Plans

UPDATE – January 21, 2014 – Walt Disney World has finally released updated dining plan brochures for all dining plans, with all included restaurants now listed. The links below now download the newest brochures.

Walt Disney World released their 2014 packages and rates today, including an update to the Disney Dining plans for 2014, which include basically no changes from the 2013 and previous year dining plans. 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 2014 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 2014 approaches, more restaurants will be included, and the list should be similar to 2014. Updates with additional restaurants or changes will be posted here.

Quick Service Dining Plan

Initially introduced in 2009, this plan has not changed for 2014. The Quick Service dining plan is 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 quick service meals
  • One snack
  • One resort refillable resort mug per person per stay

The cost of the Quick Service dining plan is $39.64 per night per adult (10 and older), and $15.75 per child (3 – 9).

Disney Dining Plan

Again, not much has changed from the Disney Dining plan of 2013, except for a small increase in price. Walt Disney World also made a change in June, 2013 where the “peak” season pricing was removed, and it is still gone for 2014. The cost of the Disney Dining Plan is the same all year.

The Disney Dining Plan includes, per person, per night of your stay:

  • One table service meal
  • One quick service meal
  • One snack
  • One resort refillable resort mug per person per stay

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 $58.66 per night per adult (10 and older), and $18.88 per child (3 – 9).

Disney Deluxe Dining Plan

Again, nothing has changed from the Deluxe Dining Plan of 2013, with the exception of another small price increase.

The Disney Deluxe Dining Plan includes, per person, per night of your stay:

  • Three meals, which can be used for either quick 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 $104.94 per night per adult (10 and older), and $29.51 per child (3 – 9).

Magic Your Way Premium Package

Again, very little has changed with the premium package, it now includes:

  • Breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus two snacks, per person, per night. Available 100 Walt Disney World restaurants (includes tax but not gratuities, unless otherwise noted). More information is found in the brochure below

Magic Your Way Platinum Package

Similar to the premium package above, the Platinum package is the ultimate in luxury. The Magic Your Way Platinum package is only available at the Deluxe Disney resorts.

The Magic Your Way Platinum Package includes everything the premium package offers, plus:

I like the meal plan but the 1 quick service and 1 table service is not enough and but three table is too much. It would be helpful if there was one of the following either 2 quick and 1 table or 2 table and 1 quick. My preference would be 2 table and one quick.

Carol Ann – Agreed. However, the Deluxe Dining plan credits can be used for either counter service or table service, up to you. Most people use it the way you are saying, two table service and one counter service, using all three for table service is a TON of food.

Personally, I use the Disney dining plan for my family, it seems to work the best. I just pay out of pocket for any additional meals, and I have found I come out ahead that way rather than paying for the deluxe and trying to use all the food.

I just came back from our trip a week ago. It was the first time and having used the dinning plan was very unhappy. My son, who just made ten was considered an adult and had to pay more. He is 65 pounds soak and wet and I only ordered kids meals. He ate the same amount of food as his younger siblings. The restaurant did offer larger portions but it was too much food. For the second part of the stay, we were not on a plan and when dining I just ordered kids things and it was cheaper. Has anyone had a similar situation? I realize the benefit but most restaurants consider kids up to 11 or 12.

What am missing and would there be anyway to make it work next time.

The dining plans definitely do not work for everyone. You really have to sit down and do the math before hand to see if they work for your family or not. I do know how you feel though, I have a son that insisted on ordering off the kids menu until he was 16. Then again, I have a daughter that ate enough to order an adult meal each time since she was about 6.

For Disney, they consider everyone 10+ an adult for both park passes and all restaurants. While in many cases, I think that is too young (especially when it comes to adult vs kids meals), it is what it is, and it has been that way as long as I can remember. Next trip, maybe things will be different for you.

Thanks for the response and your right. It is what it is. I will plan more wisely and go in with a plan. The quick service plan may just be better for us.
Happy travels!!

Has Disney started taking reservations for summer 2014 yet?

Yes you can. I made reservations as a DVC member and the dinning plan is available too.

LaTerese – Yes, you can make reservations for all of 2014 at this point

Have the dates of free meal plans, with package, been released? I’m planning a trip in December and that certainly helps with cost.

Tonya – We have not seen free dining released for any dates in 2014. We are not expecting anything to be announced until early April for September travel dates.

Keith…In your opinion, would you book your hotel “Of choice” with maybe a discount and buy the meal plan? We usually get the free meal plan, but on our last 2 trips, we did not get our choice hotel and were VERY disappointed with where Disney had us stay. Now we don’t know how to remedy this…any hints ???

13 Keith April 3, 2014 at 10:56 am

Suzanne – Well, I am not sure we will see free dining at all for 2014, so this may be a mute point. I usually suggest to look at the all the discounts available, while free dining may not be available at “your” resort, there may be other discounts available there that may bring the price down to close to what free dining would.

It just depends on what your pain level is, if you can stand not getting the best price, then book where you want and don’t worry about it. If money is super tight, then you may need to suffer through staying somewhere else.

Consider getting a decent Disney travel agent, they will be able to make sure you get the best deal, but still stay somewhere close to what you want.

Who would you consider a decent Disney travel agent…we have been calling Disney direct…but not sure of that now. Looking into Mouseketrips…

Suzanne – We love Mouseketrips, they have been around forever and do a great job, plus they are our sponsors!

Thanks Keith…I will send our info to them and see what they come up with. We received a price through Walt Disney World (hotel of choice) buying the meal plan, park hopper, etc. I sent the same info to Mouseketrips. Hope all goes well.
