Details for the 2012 Disney Dining Plans have begun to be unveiled! See Pricing below (thanks to reader Pudge the Fish for this!). And there are a few changes you need to know about if you’re planning a 2012 trip.
Standard Disney Dining Plan to Include Refillable Mugs
Let’s look at the thirst-quenching addition first. The standard Disney Dining Plan will include refillable mugs!
Our first clue that this addition was likely in the works was via the release of the Virgin Holidays 2012 free dining package details for United Kingdom guests. And we can now confirm that refillable mugs will be included in all standard Disney Dining Plan packages! You’ll receive one refillable mug per person for refills at quick-service locations ONLY in your Disney resort hotel.
Quick-Service Dining Plan Reduces Snack Quota to One Per Day
Quick Service Disney Dining Plans didn’t fare as well for the 2012 season. If you love snacks (cupcakes, Dole Whip and more!), the significant change is that only one snack will be allowed per person per day on the Quick Service plan. Be still our snack-worthy hearts (and stomachs)!
Wine and Dine Plan Seems to be Missing…
As of right now, we don’t see an indication of the Wine and Dine plan in 2012. As we know, these preliminary info releases are missing a lot of updates and changes that could lock into place closer to the end of the year, so we can’t definitively say that this won’t be returning. All the same, we wanted to give you a heads up that it’s not appearing at the moment.

More Updates to Come
While restaurants are listed on the plans, it’ll take some time before all eateries are finalized (usually some restaurants wait until the last minute to re-up their status in the Dining Plan). Stay tuned for more Disney Dining Plan information as it is released.
