Dining Plans

Disney Hotel guest are elgible to participate in the Disney Dining Plan. (Yes, you have to be staying in a Disney Hotel). The Dining Plan will allow you to prepay your meals most of the restaurants. Disney says you can save up to 30% using the Dining Plan. Dad’s not so sure. Either way, you certainly should check out the Dining Plan. Disney has been giving it away for years, and free food is always good.

Character Dining

Some of the most popular meals at Disney World include Character Dining. Want to eat a meal with Donald Duck? Go to the Tusker House at Animal Kingdom for breakfast and enjoy a Safari Breakfast with Donald and friends. It’s just one of the great character meals Disney offers.

Signature Dining

A few years ago, Disney started what they call Signature Dining. These Disney World Dining experiences are at some of the top of the line restaurants anywhere. There are Signature Dining restaurants located in the hotels, and in the theme parks.

 

A Signature Restaurant will have a menu that is usually tailored to fresh ingredients. It also has a dress code (usually) and outstanding service. Outstanding service means that meals tend to be slower paced and not rushed. Signature Dining Restaurants also smaller restaurants that have limited seating so Advanced Dining Reservations (ADR’s) are a must.

Dad’s Bottom Line

For a quick meal this is not the worst you’ll get at Disney World. Disney World pizza is OK, but nothing special.
