So, are the 2019 Disney Dining Plans different from the current Disney Dining Plans?

Over the past couple of years, we’ve seen some changes to the Disney Dining Plan. In 2017, Snack Credit entitlements increased from 1 Snack Credit per night of a package stay to 2 snack credits for the Quick Service and Standard Dining Plans (the Deluxe Dining Plan remained at two Snack Credits). In exchange, the dessert was removed from the full Quick Service meal entitlement.

An even more significant change occurred for the current 2018 Disney Dining Plans, when alcoholic beverages were included for of-age guests to both Quick Service and Table Service meal entitlements. Specialty drinks were also added for guests who are not of-age or choose not to imbibe.

For 2019, all of the additions from the past two years remain with no significant changes (though, as per usual, there are pricing adjustments, which can be found on the individual Plan pages as linked above).

    Wholly overpriced batman.

    Unless you eat THE most expensive item at THE most expensive restaurants, there is no way on earth this is a deal.

    We spend about $45 per day per person on meals on our trips. Some days we eat two quick service meals, sometimes we order several appetizers and share.

    far too regimented and far too pricey for us.

  2. Mike V says

    We just stick with the quick service plan now and it’s well worth it when traveling during the F & W or the F & G festivals.
    We’ve found that the standard plan just is not worth it and takes too much time away. Not to mention you have to add $20-40 or more to each meal since gratuity isn’t included.

    Every time we have gone to Disney we have gotten the standard dining plan. It may not be cost effective for some but it made our vacation so much easier!!! We planned our dinner to be in the park we were going to and we did typically make sure we had the pricier selections. All the snacks were either used or on our last day we would use them and pack them in our carry on to have for the plane ride home. I personally love it! We have eaten at places we would never have gone to without the plan.
