The Standard Disney Dining Plan is the middle tier of the Disney Dining Plan. This plan is typically included with “Free” Dining promotion at the Moderate, Deluxe, and Deluxe Villa Resorts. For a fee, you can upgrade from the Free Quick Service Dining Plan to this plan. Each day, the Standard Disney Dining Plan includes:
Counter-service meals consist of:
Table-service meals consist of:
The 2013 daily price of the Standard Disney Dining Plan $55.59 per adult and $17.16 per child, per night for most times of the year and $56.94 per adult and $18.16 per child during peak season. Children under 3 eat free from an adult’s plate. Gratuity is not included. The Disney Dining Plan must be purchased for the entire length of stay and for the entire party (ages 3+). Disney states that meals are non-transferable between party members, but they go into a common “pool” on your Key to the World card, so this is not enforced. Some “Signature Dining” meals and Cinderella’s Royal Table meals require 2 table-service credits. Disney states that this plan can save you up to 20%, but by following our tips, you can maximize your value, and save even more! Meals expire at midnight on day of check-out.
Prices are expected to go up again in mid-2013 and/or early 2014.
