Full List of Restaurants on 2024 Disney Dining Plans (and What’s Missing)

Walt Disney World has released the complete* list of 232 participating restaurants for the 2024 Disney Dining Plans. This shares all of the counter and table service restaurants confirmed as being eligible on the two tiers of DDPs that are available, plus commentary about what’s missing. (Updated April 1, 2024.)

Let’s start with the basics, which is that that Disney Dining Plans are once again available to purchase. This now includes both full Walt Disney World vacation packages and ticketless resort hotel + Disney Dining Plan reservations. Here are all of the details and changes for the 2024 Disney Dining Plan.

As of right now, only the Quick-Service Disney Dining Plan (QSDDP) and standard or regular Disney Dining Plan (DDP) are bookable for both 2024 and 2025. In addition to the paid version, Free Dining has also made a comeback for 2024. We’re expecting a ‘second wave’ with more travel dates to be released later in the year.

Let’s start with the latest updates to the list as of April 2024. The first is that 1900 Park Fare will participate in the Disney Dining Plan as 1-credit table service meal for breakfast or dinner. Given its pricing ($66 per adult and $41 per child for dinner; $54 per adult and $34 per child for breakfast), 1900 Park Fare about maxes out the 1-credit price range for the DDP. Consequently, dinner at 1900 Park Fare is an excellent (top 5) use of a Disney Dining Plan credit and breakfast is also pretty good.

This month’s other big addition is eet by Maneet Chauhan at Disney Springs. This will also make our list of theBest Counter Service Counter Service Credit Uses on the Disney Dining Plan for 2024 (once updated). It won’t be #1 like its predecessor, but the BYOB will earn it a spot on the list. There are a couple of other items that are likewise worthy of consideration from a value for credit perspective.

Against that backdrop, Walt Disney World has updated its dining portal to list the 230 restaurants that will participate in the DDP and the 119 restaurants that will be eligible for the QSDDP. Unfortunately, Walt Disney World has not organized these lists into categories or any easily-digestible manner, so we’re just going to give you the same info-dump they’ve released.

Again, that’s the full list for now. Some of these restaurants are table service restaurants, others at counter service restaurants, and a handful are snack spots. Their eligibility falls along those lines.

When it comes to currently operational restaurants, this list doesn’t include Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue, which is for whatever reason not on the official list. However, the official restaurant page itself does indicate that it’s participating in the 2024 Disney Dining Plan as a 2-credit table service option–same as before.

The most conspicuous omission of all is (still) California Grill.

Previously a 2-credit Signature Restaurant, the most logical explanation for why California Grill isn’t on the list is its prix fixe menu. There are other restaurants (like Be Our Guest) that do prix fixe menus and the Disney Dining Plan, but California Grill is nicer than Be Our Guest.

What’s possible is that California Grill is so popular that Walt Disney World doesn’t think the DDP is needed, and is willing to start the year without it. However, our bet is that’ll change over the course of 2024, as other restaurants that do accept the Disney Dining Plan will eat into California Grill’s popularity.

Another glaring omission is Space 220 Restaurant in EPCOT. This is owned by Patina Group, which operates many restaurants around Walt Disney World–including Via Napoli in EPCOT.

All of Patina’s other restaurants are on the list above, which means that Patina has negotiated and reached terms with Walt Disney World on the rest but not Space 220. Even though this is disappointing, it makes sense. Patina wanting to take a wait and see approach on demand with the still-new Space 220 would certainly make sense.

This is another one that we wouldn’t be surprised to see added to the Disney Dining Plan in the second half of 2024 as ADRs slow down for Space 220. Or maybe they won’t slow down, and Space 220 can maintain its stratospheric demand even without the DDP. (At the very least, we’d bet that the new restaurant smell wears off over the course of the year and it’s added to the 2025 Disney Dining Plan.)

Sticking with EPCOT, there are two less-surprising snubs: Monsieur Paul in France and Takumi Tei in Japan.

The third parties in both France and Japan have now negotiated their contracts and the rest of the restaurants in their respective World Showcase pavilions are now participating in the 2024 Disney Dining Plan. These two are almost certainly the exceptions because they have pricey prix fixe menus that don’t fit within the normal parameters of the DDP.

With that said, Monsieur Paul was pretty unpopular pre-closure and needed everything possible to fill tables. When both it and Takumi-Tei reopened, demand was sky-high, even with absurd price increases. Both have since returned to reality, and ADRs are much easier at both. It would not surprise us in the least if either or both are last-minute additions to the 2024 Disney Dining Plan, with funky rules as to how credits work.

This is still not yet a comprehensive list of all restaurants that will ultimately participate in the 2024 Disney Dining Plan at some point. A few more restaurants will be added throughout the year.

Many restaurants at Walt Disney World are owned and operated by third parties. (If you didn’t, sorry to burst that bubble.) This isn’t just at Disney Springs, which is home to chains and outposts of renowned celebrity chefs. It’s also true at some resort restaurants, and in both EPCOT and Animal Kingdom. This includes Homecomin’, Maria & Enzo’s, Morimoto Asia, Chefs de France, Via Napoli, Coronado Springs dining, and more.

Walt Disney World negotiates with these third party restaurants about the terms of their participation in the Disney Dining Plan. Actually, “negotiate” might be a strong word; I don’t have insight into the process, but assume it’s more a take it or leave it offer by Walt Disney World with uniform contract terms.

In our Disney Dining Plan Info & Review post, we reverse-engineer a dollar value for each type of DDP credit, with $45 being the amount ascribed to a table service credit. (That number could end up being higher or lower for 2024–we don’t yet have pricing.) Walt Disney World does the same (minus the reverse-engineering part) and sets a reimbursement rate for these third parties.

In other words, if a third-party table restaurant chooses to accepts the Disney Dining Plan, they are paid a rate below the actual value of each DDP credit, with Disney also taking their cut. For example, the third party might be paid $25 by Walt Disney World for each credit that’s redeemed. (This is an example and $25 is not the actual amount restaurants are paid–we don’t know the true amount.)

What we do know is that it’s low enough that third party restaurant operators have to weigh the low reimbursement rate against the ubiquity and guest adoption rate of the Disney Dining Plan. For third party restaurateurs, it’s a lesser of two evils scenario: do these venues accept reduced profits per meal or a reduced fill-rate for tables?

Inevitably, nearly all third party restaurants end up choosing the former. The final participant list for the 2024 Disney Dining Plan will be almost identical to what it was in 2020…plus all of the new restaurants that have opened since then, minus whatever has closed or changed names.

There’s always a chance a restaurant or two will “break ranks” and opt out of the 2024 Disney Dining Plan. If anything, that seems more likely than has happened in the past. Walt Disney World restaurants have gotten used to operating without the DDP in the last few years, and business has been booming during that time. However, I can only think of a few instances of this ‘opt out’ happening over the last decade.

Currently, a few high profile restaurants are not on the above list of participants in the 2024 Disney Dining Plan.

Of those, STK is about the most logical restaurant to drop the Disney Dining Plan. It doesn’t cater to the normal DDP crowd–it’s something of an anomaly of Walt Disney World dining, eschewing families for convention guests and locals on date night. (STK not accepting the Disney Dining Plan would probably be best for all involved.)

Ultimately, this exact same scenario with the Disney Dining Plan plays out every single year. Readers usually start asking about exclusions in the fall, with some understandable “freaking out” closer to Christmas. In the past, it hasn’t helped that info on DisneyWorld.com is often inconsistent from page to page.

We’ll keep you posted and update this list accordingly when Walt Disney World adds or removes restaurants from the list of 2024 Disney Dining Plan participants.
