Disney on a Budget: Dining Discounts
Going to Disney World and trying to save money but worried you will have to give up your favorite eats? Not to worry we have compiled a list of dining discounts for you so that you can save money and enjoy your favorite Disney restaurants at the same time!
Disney Dining Plan
Disney offers guests the option to buy a prepaid Dining plan that can be a great way to save money and enjoy some of the best restaurants on Disney property.
There are three ways the dining plan can be purchased.
- As part of a Magic Your Way vacation package that includes accommodations at a Disney resort plus at least a 1-day theme park ticket per person.
- Annual passholders can buy a package that includes Disney accommodations and the dining plan.
- Disney Vacation Club Members and their guests may purchase the dining plan if they are staying on points at a DVC resort. This must be arranged through Member Services.
Restaurant.com offers discounts for some great Disney World and Orlando restaurants! It works by selling discounted gift certificates to the restaurants!
For example, you could purchase a $25 gift certificate for $10 or less.
Tables in Wonderland
Disney's Tables in Wonderland dining program is a membership program that provides a 20% discount on food and beverages (including alcohol) for parties of up to 10 people at most restaurants and lounges in Walt Disney World resorts and parks.
Annual and Season Passholders can purchase a Tables in Wonderland membership for $75 a year. Florida residents can purchase a membership for $100 a year.
