How to Use Your Dining Plan

1. Present your valid Disney Resort ID (MagicBand or card) to your server or cashier at participating restaurants. 2. Specify the number of meals or snacks being redeemed.

For special dietary requests, Guests should note them at the time of booking their dining reservations. Guests may also speak with a chef or manager upon arrival at the dining location.

If you’re dining with another party that’s also using a MagicBand or card to redeem meals, please notify the server which meals should be redeemed on each valid Disney Resort ID. Guests ages 3 to 9 must order from a children’s menu, where available.

You can redeem your meals and snacks in any order during your stay, until the number of meals and snacks associated with your package has been depleted. All unused meals and snacks and the ability to use your refillable mug expire at midnight on your package reservation checkout date.

How to Keep Track

Your dining plan usage is electronically linked to your reservation. Keep track of your remaining entitlements in 2 ways:

1. Check your dining receipts. Remaining entitlements are printed on them. 2. Ask your Resort Concierge or Guest Relations to obtain them at any time.


Table-Service restaurants, Character Dining locations and Signature restaurants book quickly, and some may have limited or no availability at the time of package purchase or when making dining reservations. Advance reservations are required for all Dinner Shows.

To make reservations:

An accepted major credit card guarantee is required for reservations at certain locations. Reservations must be canceled at least one day prior to the date of your reservation or a per-person cancellation charge may be incurred. (Charge varies by location.) Reservations may be made up to 180 days prior to arrival for best options.


  • Gratuities are not included except at Dinner Shows, Private In-Room Dining and Cinderella’s Royal Table.

  • An additional form of payment is needed if you add gratuity and have not provided a credit card at check-in to charge incidentals and other expenses to your room.
