2014 Standard Disney Dining Plan

The 2014 nightly price (the Dining Plan is based on each night of your trip, not day) of the Standard Disney Dining Plan is $60.64 per adult and $19.23 per child for most times of the year, with slight surcharges 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.

Disney Dining Plan price increased in March 2014 and are expected to increase in late-2014 or early-2015 again.
