Disney World Resorts with Dining Plan 2016

Changes to the Disney World Dining Plan 2016

Disney is trying to be more proactive with what their guests want with the new Disney World Dining Plan 2016. Substitutions will be one that is at the top of the list for many. Many of the restaurants in the plans that offer a Table Dining options (all of them except the Quick Service plan, by the way), can now switch out the dessert for something a little more healthy, like a salad, soup or fruit. In the past, when you purchased your Dining Plan, each of the meals were only to be used by the person they were assigned to. This has also changed in the 2016 Disney World Dining Plans with Table Service. Now, if you want to treat someone to a meal, you can use these credits at any time and for anyone. This gives a lot of flexibility and also works well for using up one of the bigger plans when it comes closer to the end of your stay.

I want more snacks!

It is not that you get more snacks, it is more of a change in the snack offerings. When using the Quick Service Plan, part of the meal includes a dessert. It might not be the best time to get a dessert after you have filled up on the main course. This has been remedied by allowing the dessert portion of the meal to be transferred to a snack. This is a fantastic option. You now can hold off and get something to snack on later in the day. In fact, in this same plan, you can turn in a meal and get up to 3 snacks instead. Okay, sounds great but remember, you aren’t going to get veggies or very many healthy items in the snack section so be careful how many meals you trade in.

Snacks for Breakfast?

No, not really! One of the new Disney World Dining Plan 2016 changes to snack credits allow you to trade them in to get breakfast items. It will not cover a whole meal at breakfast but if you are a light breakfast eater, getting some cereal or oatmeal is plenty. You also get a Refillable Mug with all of the Disney World Dining Plans in 2016 so your beverage, and yes I mean coffee, is taken care of.
