The Disney Dining Plan is a hot discount program available at Disney World. Guests have waited for Disney to announce the dates for Free Dining, and some people swear by the DDP, so they add it to their vacation package regardless of when they’re traveling.
Until now, only guests staying at one of the Disney resort hotels were eligible for a Disney Dining Plan, but Disney is testing a new kind of dining plan.
From now until December 1, 2017, guests to who book a Walt Disney Travel Company package at one of the hotels not owned by Disney will get a Disney Quick-Service Dining Card good at any quick-service restaurant in Disney World. They must be used before December 31, 2017.
If you’re staying at Walt Disney World Swan Hotel, Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel, Four Seasons Resort Orlando, Walt Disney World Good Neighbor Hotel, or one of the Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels and you’ve booked a minimum of a three-day ticket, you can add the discounted pre-paid gift card.
For each day of park admission, guests will get $40 for adults and $15 for children at a discount of $35 and $12.50 respectively. You can upgrade our gift card up to $400 for adults and $150 for children – the gift card can be purchased for up to ten days.
However, you don’t have to purchase the number of days that you do tickets.
When you check in to your hotel, you’ll get your tickets and your gift cards.
Quick-service Dining Cards for non-Disney hotels: good idea?
