Last week, we shared a rumor that a new Disney Dining Plan was coming and today, Walt Disney World has officially introduced its brand new Disney Dining Plan Plus giving guests the flexibility of using their dining entitlements exclusively on Table-Service experiences or adding in some Quick-Service meals.

2 Meals Per Night of Stay – Any combination of Table-Service and Quick-Service Meals
