A revamped dining plan at Walt Disney World is launching this year, giving visitors a chance to substantially save while visiting the park.

The newly announced Disney Dining Promo Card — which will replace the Disney Dining Plan that was suspended in March 2020 — will give guests who book 5-night, 4-day ticket and room packages at select Disney Resort hotels an allotted $750, according to a Disney Parks Blog post shared this week.

While the former plan required strategy and planning to break even on cost, the new program takes the guesswork out of dining by offering guests a gift card to use freely at participating dining locations. The Disney Dining Promo Card can be used at quick-service venues, food carts, table-service restaurants, and more throughout theme parks, resorts, and at Disney Springs.

This new offer is for guests who are visiting most nights between July 1 and Sept. 14, 2023 and who have booked at least a 4-night stay with at least 4 days of accompanying theme park tickets. The Disney Dining Promo Card is available for bookings beginning today and there is only one card offered per reservation. Modifications are available to existing reservations but there may be a price increase.

At Value Resorts — such as Disney’s All-Star Resorts — guests will receive cards valued up to $50 per night stay. At Moderate Resorts — like Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort — guests will receive cards valued up to $100 per night. The greatest value will be experienced at Deluxe Resorts – like Disney’s Contemporary Resort — where guests will receive cards valued up to $150 per night stay.

With most lunch entrees priced between $10-$15 at quick service locations, such as Woody’s Lunch Box at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Satu’li Canteen at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park, significant savings is possible by cutting down out of pocket expenses. Guests can use the Disney Dining Promo Card at coveted table dining locations, like Magic Kingdom Park’s Be Our Guest. The Disney Dining Promo Card can also be used to purchase popular snacks and treats, like DOLE Whip.

The promo card arrives via email to guests and the value is dependent on arrival date, length of stay, and resort selection. The Disney Dining Promo Card can also be used to mobile order at select dining locations via the My Disney Experience app.

Along with the Disney Dining Promo Card, Disney World also announced that guests visiting this Spring and Summer can save up to 25% on rooms at select resort hotels.
