One of the many perks of staying at Walt Disney World resort is the opportunity to purchase a Disney Dining Plan and save money on dining while you are on your Disney vacation.  
Walt Disney World offers three different dining plan options for their resort guests:  Quick Service Dining Plan, Disney Dining Plan and Deluxe Dining Plan.  Disney's Quick Service Dining plan is a fantastic option for guests, who prefer to be "on the go" on their vacation and aren't looking to include character meals or multiple table service restaurant reservations.  Quick Service dining locations do not require a reservation and can be enjoyed whenever you are ready to dine.  (**Please note that Be Our Guest restaurant is the only exception to this as this restaurant does require a reservation for Quick Service dining at breakfast and lunch)
How does a Dining Plan work?  Disney Dining plans are based on the number of nights you stay at your resort.  Everyone on the resort reservation must be included on the dining plan.  All of the Disney Dining plans are very flexible to your itinerary and park visits.  Your dining credits are available to use from the moment you check-in to your Walt Disney World Resort and are good through midnight of the night you check-out.  
The Quick Service Dining plan is a convenient and easy way to dine and save money while you enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World.  Quick Service dining locations are located at all Walt Disney World resort properties, the Theme Parks and Disney Springs.  Each guest (ages 3 and up) are given 2 Quick Service meal credits, 2 Snack credits and a resort refillable mug on the Quick Service Dining Plan.    
Quick Service meals include an entree and drink.  Guests 21 and older can choose either one non-alcoholic beverage (including specialty beverages where offered) or one single-serving mixed cocktail, beer, or wine (where offered) as a beverage within their meal entitlement as well.  Will I be eating burgers and fries at every meal??  Absolutely NOT!!  You can enjoy rotisserie chicken, made to order wraps and salads, protein bowls, clam chowder and so much more.  Your Me and The Mouse Travel Specialist has all the inside tips of where to find all these fantastic dining options when you are on your vacation.
Guests 3 years and over will also receive a refillable drink mug.  This mug is available at any food court within the resorts.   It allows you to have an unlimited amount of refills of your favorite beverages, such as any fountain soda, tea, or coffee during the length of your stay and can only be used at resort properties.  
Don't forget your snacks!!  Your Quick Service Dining plan includes 2 snacks for each person for every night you stay at your resort.  Enjoy your Mickey Ice Cream Bar, caramel popcorn, Gelato, soft pretzels, themed cupcakes, and so much more with your snack credits.  No worries if you don't use your snack or quick service credit one day.  Your unused dining credits roll over to the next day, which makes this dining plan even more flexible for your vacation at Walt Disney World.  
Whether you are enjoying a short visit to the parks to enjoy your favorite attractions, visiting for the 1st time and want to make the most of your park visits, or perhaps visiting the Food and Wind Festival, the Disney Quick Service Dining Plan may be the perfect plan to enjoy dining and save money  on your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World.
