Disney Dining Plans Reviewed, Which one is right for you

Disney Dining Plans Reviewed

Mouse Chat Disney podcast –

Walt Disney World has several Dining Plans. Most people only know about one or two of these different dining plan options (Quick Service and Plus Dining). We review all the different Disney Dining Plans and what each plan offers. There are also changes to the 2012 Disney Dining Plans that you should know about.

Also Visit the Disney Food Report for the latest Disney Food News, Dining reviews and Disney Dining Plan advice and tips.

Show Notes:

Here is the link to new Lightning McQueen Cars appearance that happens in Lights, Motor, Action. This is coming to WDW soon but is already showing at Disneyland Paris. This is the Disneyland Paris version, which I assume will be what appears at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida soon.

How Much is a Disney Resort Drink Mug? $13.99 and you are set if you want to buy one for your entire stay.

Please continue to send in any Disney questions.
We have a Disney listener question show coming up soon.

  1. Just listened to this podcast, according to Disney’s web-site the plus Dining plan now includes a refillable mug. This wasn’t mentioned during your podcast. Just thought you might like to know this.

    • Thanks Matt. Yep that is a plus on the 2012 plans. We always wondered why that plan did not have the mug included. Glad they added it. Steve

  2. Just listened to your podcast on meal plans. Very enjoyable. A couple of updates and addititons to your info on the Premium & Platinmu plan. One of the key components to both plans that I didn’t hear you mention was that all the Signature restaurants only cost 1 credit instead of 2! This really makes it more beneficial if you are making a trip to the parks just to experience all the extras instead of the parks. The bad news is, Disney changed the plans for 2012 and now both plans are a 3 day minimum… which means the creative 1-day plans you mentioned reading about are not possible anymore. I am very sad about that, my wife & I were going to do a special 1 day trip for our 25th Anniversary but can’t afford the 3 day plan… Oh well

    1 more thing, you mentioned that the Premium allowed for 1 golf lesson, but actually the plan states “includes unlimited golf, lessons, green fees, electric
    cart, range balls, rental golf shoes and rental clubs per person”.

    Thanks for all you do, love the podcast!!

  3. Great show. Better than the other disney show podcast that rather talk about themselves than Disney itself. Thanks
