Want to get a Disney Dining Plan but not sure the best way to use your credits? Or not sure if you should get the dining plan?

Having a good idea of the costs and how to maximize credits should help you figure all of that out.

Let's take a look at the details of the DDP and see how to get the most out of it for 2018.

What is the Disney Dining Plan?

The Disney Dining Plan (DDP) is an optional add-on that people staying in an on-site Disney World resort can get by booking one of these things:

  • A vacation package (that includes a room and tickets) online or by calling Disney
  • A room-only reservation by calling Disney or have your agent add it
  • A DVC reservation

When you buy a Disney Dining Plan (DDP), you are pre-paying for your food and then using credits to get meals during your trip.

Reasons for getting the Disney Dining Plan

There are a few different reasons that people might choose to get the DDP.

To make trips feel all-inclusive

This is why our family likes using the Dining Plan on our Disney World trips. When your food is pre-paid, it can make your trip more fun when ordering isn't about checking prices so closely and worrying about the tab.

Sometimes it's free

Disney sometimes offers the Free Dining promotion which allows guests to get the Disney Dining Plan for free. If you book a trip using the Free Dining promotion, you give up the ability to use other promotions. People staying in Deluxe Resorts are often better off using a room discount than Free Dining.

To save money

If you play your cards right, you can actually save money on food by purchasing the Disney Dining Plan, and then eat meals that would have cost more than the dining plan. This is getting more difficult do and takes some planning. That's what the info below will help you do.

2018 Disney Dining Plan cost

Chart of prices

There are 3 main versions of the Disney Dining Plan that most people purchase.

All of these plans include 1 refillable mug per person which can be refilled at any resort, but not in the parks.

Name QS credits TS credits Snack credits 2018 price for ages 10+ 2018 price for ages 3-9
Quick-Service Dining Plan 2 0 2 $52.50 $21.75
Regular Dining Plan 1 1 2 $75.49 $25.75
Deluxe Dining Plan 3 credits to be used for either QS or TS 2 $116.25 $39.99

You get the credits listed above for each night of your trip. All of the credits are loaded to your account at once and can be used however you'd like during your trip (you could use 6 credits 1 day, 2 the following day, etc.). You can also use your credits to pay for anybody's meals - even if they aren't on the DDP - as long as they are on your check.

Gratuity is not included in the costs above (except at dinner shows and Cinderella's Royal Table), so factor that in when deciding if the Disney Dining Plan or specific restaurants make sense for you.

What about kids under age 3?

Guest ages 2 and under don't require park tickets, and they don't require a dining plan either. At buffets, kids under 3 can have their own plate. At all other locations, they can eat off of your plate.

Some people want to buy the Disney Dining Plan for their little ones, but if you booked a vacation package that includes room and tickets, adding a dining plan for your little one requires that you also buy them park tickets so that's not generally a good idea. If you want your toddler to have their own meals, you'd be better off just paying out-of-pocket for them.

What does a credit include?

Quick Service credits

A Quick Service credit includes an entree and a drink from a Quick Service restaurant. New for 2018! This includes alcoholic drinks where they are available. Side note: dessert stopped being included in 2017.

These credits aren't separated into child or adult categories so you can get adult meals for your child. You can also use 1 Quick Service credit to purchase 3 DDP-eligible snacks, as long as they're done all in the same transaction.

Most Quick Service restaurants (except for Be Our Guest breakfast and lunch services) do not require Advanced Dining Reservations and function like most fast-food restaurants.

Table Service credits

Table Service credits include a drink, entree and dessert from a Table Service restaurant (except at breakfast which doesn't include dessert). New for 2018! This includes alcoholic drinks where they are available.

Most Table Service restaurants usually require advanced dining reservations. Advanced Dining Reservations for Table Service restaurants can be made starting at 180 days out from the date of your trip.

Note: people using the Deluxe Dining Plan also get an appetizer with their Table Service credits.

Snack credits

Snack credits can be used for many things including bottled water, ice cream and bakery items. You'll see the DDP icon next to these items on menus throughout Disney World.

Disney Dining Plan credit values

General advice for maximizing credits

Roughly speaking:

  • Quick Service credits are worth about $18
  • Table Service credits are worth about $41
  • Snack credits are worth about $5

That means to break even on the Disney Dining Plan, you'll need to choose food that costs at least that amount.

There are huge lists below detailing every Table Service and Quick Service restaurant and the value of a credit at those locations. You can plan according to those lists and/or keep these general things in mind when maximizing credits:

  • Character meals and dining packages are generally a great use of a credit.
  • Signature Restaurants are almost never the best way to maximize a credit since they require 2 Table Service credits per meal but don't cost twice as much if you were paying out-of-pocket.
  • Go for the steak, lobster, shakes, alcohol, and orange juice. Those are often the most expensive options so take advantage when they're on the menu.
  • Don't choose breakfast when trying to maximize most DDP credits since it is usually much less expensive than lunch or dinner.

2018 Table Service Disney Dining Plan Credit Values

A couple of notes about the data below:
* includes gratuity so that has been factored into the value of a credit
** these dining packages also come with an appetizer which has been included in the value of a credit

On the Deluxe Dining Plan? Add the cost of an appetizer to the value of each credit.

What about the best snack credits?

After seeing the Table Service and Quick Service charts above, many people wonder why we don't have one for snacks. The reason is simple: there are just way too many to track and the list changes constantly. However, this spreadsheet of confirmed snack credits is the best source for snack credit info.

In general, you are getting a good value for your snack credit if the item costs $5 or more. The most valuable snack credits are often for specialty cupcakes, items at Epcot festival food kitchens, and Starbucks drinks (especially since extra flavors don't cost you any more credits).

What if you don't have enough credits?

If your restaurant plans will require more credits than you have, you should plan to pay out-of-pocket for the restaurant that's ranked the lowest on the charts above. That way you're using your credits for the places where they are the most valuable.

Interesting in having an agent book your trip, make your dining reservations, and help you maximize your credits? Get started on that now.
