• The Walt Disney World dining plans have been a huge hit since their introduction in 2006. A huge percentage of Disney Resort guests are using one of the dining plans. They allow you to eat in the theme parks for a reduced price, and have your dining budgeted out before you ever leave home. Obviously, the dining plan becomes a better deal if you eat at more expensive restaurants. Below are the 10 best table service restaurants for use with the Disney Dining plan:

    The dining plan includes one entree, one dessert and one non-alcoholic drink per person. The prices are based on the total value of the most expensive total of the three items at each restaurant. The 2009 cost for the Disney Dining plan is $39.99 per adult per night of your stay.

    The first thing you can see is what a great deal the Disney dining plan is, you are getting $40+ in just one meal for $40, plus the addition of a counter service meal and a snack makes for one awesome deal.

    Two notes. Many restaurants include other drinks as part of the plan, such as milk-shakes. I opted to keep all restaurants with soft drinks to keep thing simple. Also, make sure you check out all the menus, just because the restaurant might be the best “deal”, it might not be the best option for your family. Whether you are getting $50 worth of food, or $40, it is irrelevant, as you are paying the same cost. It just depends on which restaurant you will enjoy more.
