Our friend, Kristen from Resales DVC shares all we need to know about the new changes to the Disney Dining Plan for 2018. Do you use the dining plan? What do you think of these changes?


The 2018 Disney Dining Plan packages were just announced and now guests will have several new beverage options available including non-alcoholic specialty beverages and, for Guests 21 and older, beer, wine and cocktails. Guests can choose from three dining plans ranging from on-the-go meals to the more inclusive table-service dining.2018 disney dining plan resales dvc

You can add the plan at time of booking or at least 48 hours prior to Check-In. Purchasing a dining plan for your trip can be very cost effective versus paying out of pocket for meals.
