Disneyland Dining Plans and Pre-Paid Meal Vouchers

Disneyland offers pre-paid dining plan vouchers purchased with a vacation package or stand-alone meal vouchers to help guests budget their food costs.

Disneyland’s Dine in the Magic dining plans work on a voucher system. You’re not necessarily saving any money, but you are paying in advance, which some guests prefer. Choose the plan that works best with your vacation and add it to your package, planning accordingly because vouchers are not refundable and expire at the end of the year. You may purchase any length dining plan, and not everyone on your reservation needs to have the plan. This flexibility differs from the more stringent rules with the Walt Disney World Disney Dining Plan.

When using meal vouchers, remember that no change is given. For example, if you purchase a $35 meal and pay for it with a $40 voucher, you will not have $5 in cash or voucher returned to you. The snack and meal vouchers are redeemable at cafes, snack spots, and restaurants throughout the Disneyland Resort.
