    Hi Everyone, Looking for some updated information if there is any. We are planning to visit Disneyland in July of 2014. Has there been any updates to the dinning plan out there? We so love Disney Dinning at WDW!!! only found info from 1/2012. Thanks!

    Hi, Rickie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so glad to hear you'll be visiting The Happiest Place on Earth this summer.

    The Disneyland Resort’s dining plans consist of pre-paid snack and meal vouchers that are redeemable at dozens of cafes, snack spots and restaurants throughout the Disneyland Resort, including the theme parks and resort hotels. As you may already know, dining plans available at the Disneyland Resort are based on a  system that is really designed more for convenience and simplicity than money savings, which is often the goal of purchasing a dining plan at Walt Disney World. The Disneyland Resort’s plans don’t necessarily offer any savings and can actually cost more than buying a meal outright because change isn’t given when the price of the menu items is less than what the voucher is worth. However, it can be a good system for a family who likes to budget and pre-pay for all their food in advance.

    The Premium Character Dining voucher may be used at Ariel’s Disney Princess Celebration at Ariel’s Grotto in Disney California Adventure Park, or for the character breakfast, lunch or dinner buffet at Goofy’s Kitchen in the Disneyland Hotel. This voucher varies from the Character Dining voucher, which is for breakfast only and valid at Minnie & Friends Breakfast at Plaza Inn, Surf’s Up! Breakfast at Disney’s PCH Grill, or Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Critter Breakfast at Storytellers Cafe.

    If you plan to enjoy any table-service or character dining meals at restaurants like Blue Bayou, Carthay Circle Restaurant or Goofy’s Kitchen, I recommend you make reservations. They can be made online or by calling Disney Dining at (714) 781-DINE (3463).

    I hope this helps, Rickie, and that you enjoy a perfectly pixie-dusted Disneyland Resort vacation! 

    Wishing you magic,
