Universal Dining Plan Information
The Universal Orlando theme parks have announced the Universal Dining Plan giving guests the option to book their meals and snacks when booking a Universal vacation.
Each day the Universal Dining Plan enables guests to enjoy:
One table service meal (entrée, dining plan dessert, and non-alcoholic beverage)
One counter service meal (entrée and non-alcoholic beverage)
One snack (such as a hot dog, ice cream, or frozen beverage from food carts or counter service locations)
One beverage (from food carts or counter service locations)
How It Works
When Universal guests purchase a vacation package and include the dining plan, they’ll receive a ticket to be exchanged at Universal Orlando Resort for a Universal Dining Plan card.
Guests can pick up their Universal Dining Plan Card at:
The Universal Ticket Desk at any Universal Orlando on-site hotel
The Dining Reservation Center at either theme park or Universal City Walk
Guest Services at Universal Studios or Universal Islands of Adventure theme parks
The Universal Dining Plan is valid at more than 100 dining locations throughout Universal’s theme parks and Universal CityWalk. Guests can check the menu boards at participating locations for items honored by the plan – indicated by the Universal Dining Plan symbol – and present their dining card when placing their order.
