    How do I get a list of restaurants accepting Dining Plans?

    Hi Helene,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We love the Disney Dining Plans, so I am always happy to talk about them!

    To see the list of restaurants that accept the Disney Dining Plans, just open the Walt Disney World Website. At the top of the page, you should see a link that says "Things to Do." Click on that link, then click on "Dining Plans." At the bottom of the Dining Plans page, you should see a link that says "Choose a Restaurant." Once you click on that link, you should see links to each dining plan and the participating restaurants for each plan. Or, you could also just search the restaurants that you want to experience, then on each restaurant's homepage, look for a link that says "Some Dining  Plans Accepted." If that link is there, click on it and a pop-up chart will appear that shows you how many and what type of meal credits are required for that restaurant.

    When we arrive at each restaurant, the cast member who serves us reviews the menu and what is included in our dining plan. The Disney Deluxe Dining Plan is our favorite because it offers three meal credits per night of stay and so much flexibility. With the Deluxe Dining Plan, we always enjoy a few signature restaurants and we visit several restaurants with character experiences. We use this plan to have some fabulous dining experiences.

    Helene, I suggest that you make advanced dining reservations and, where possible, review the menus of restaurants prior to your visit. Check the restaurant sites and look for the link that says "View Menu." That will give you a sense of what each restaurant serves. Doing so has also helped us expedite our ordering process when we arrive - after all, we have Fast Pass+ selections to do!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
