Walt Disney World 2020 Dining Plans – Important Updates

Overall the Walt Disney World Dining Plan entitlements & locations have not changed leaps and bounds from 2019. The BIG change going into place now is the separation of the child & adult quick service meal credits.
CLICK HERE to visit my page that explains what the 2020 Dining Plans offer.

Although Disney rules have always stated that children ages 3 – 9 must order off of the children’s menu where available, in the past quick service dining credits were not tracked separately for children and adults. This allowed children a little more freedom. If they didn’t like what was offered on the children’s menu, or maybe had larger appetites, they could order off of the adult menu.

Due to the credit separation loophole, families had found ways to order all adult meals with their quick service credits & share the larger portions in order to stretch the value of their dining plan. If you were one of those people, be prepared, if you order adult meals for your children age 3 – 9, you may end up with only child credits left to use.

Below is a screen shot in the Disney app showing the credits available & the credits used.

Keep in mind that Disney is closing a loophole in their tracking system. Their rules have always stated that children 3 – 9 must order from a child’s menu.
