Changes Confirmed to 2017 Walt Disney World Dining Plan

June 21, 2016

Rumors of possible changes to the 2017 Walt Disney World dining plan have been circulating since the day 2017 packages opened overseas to UK guests. Today with 2017 packages opening to American guests, Disney confirmed these changes will effect American guests too. We can also say the rumored changes that we addressed in TMSM Mythbusters a few weeks ago that several 1credit character meals would change to 2 credit, is in fact not true.


The new  2017 Disney Dining Plan changes may make Quick Service dining more enjoyable or at least more flexible. The dessert has been eliminated from the Quick Service meal and has been replaced by an additional snack credit. Guests traveling through 12/31/16 will not be effected by this dining plan change.

Through 12/31/16 Quick Service Meals will include:

  • 1 entree
  • 1 non-alcoholic drink
  • 1 dessert

Effective 1/1/2017 Quick Service Meal s will include:

  • 1 entree
  • 1 non-alcoholic drink

This change does not mean the  Quick-Service plan will come with 3 snacks as two desserts are being eliminated from it. The Quick-Service plan will still have 2 snack credits like the Disney Dining Plan. To help you understand how the 2017 Dining Plans will work we are providing the official break down of what each plan now includes. Please also note that the  Premium and Platinum dining packages will not be available in 2017.




2017 Disney Dining Plan Pricing is currently quoting* as follows per night of stay:

Adult (10 years old and up):

  • Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan $46.34 per night
  • Disney Dining Plan (Standard) $67.33 per night
  • Disney Deluxe Dining Plan $103.57 per night

Child (3-9 years old):

  • Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan $20.18 per night
  • Disney Dining Plan (Standard) $24.22 per night
  • Disney Deluxe Dining Plan $37.62

With the release of the new dining plan changes, Disney has also better clarified their wording to address how children’s dining plan entitlements work. In regards to what menu children 3-9  using the Disney Dining Plan can order from the new 2017 literature now clearly notes that “Guests ages 3–9 must order from a children’s menu where available.”
The new literature also better addresses children 3 and under  whose family is using the  Dining Plan. The new literature states that “Disney dining plans are unavailable for Guests under the age of 3, but they may share from an adult plate at no extra charge, or an additional meal may be purchased from the menu. The price of the meal will be added to your bill.”

Below you will find PDFs flyers for each of the  2017 Walt Disney World Resort dining plan.



*Above pricing is based on a 1-night stay with ticket at Pop Century 10/27-10/28/17 for 1 adult only and a 1-night stay for 1 adult and 1 7-year old. Prices were found by deleting the price of no dining from each meal type’s total. This pricing is subject to change.
