A Disney Dining Plan can save a family up to 30 percent per person on meals served by a Disney theme park restaurant. Some of the restaurants affiliated with the park also honor the Disney Dining Plan. Buying them is just a matter of requesting the plan during a regular reservation.
Select the Magic Your Way Vacation Package with the Disney Dining Plan option when you make a reservation at a Disney hotel.
Research the types of dining plans. The low-end quick-service plan is geared toward light meals and snacks, while the top platinum plan covers one breakfast, lunch and dinner, one refillable drink mug per person and two snacks each night of the hotel stay.
Book the reservations as early as possible to reserve seats in the restaurants. Though each plan covers more than 100 restaurants, there are times when seating will be limited.
