RUMOR: New Disney Dining Plan Plus Coming Soon

RUMOR: New Disney Dining Plan Plus Coming Soon 600-disney-dining-plan-logo

There’s a rumor on the DISboards that we’ll be seeing an addition very soon to the Disney Dining Plan.

Based on the conversation currently taking place in the Dining forum, the new dining plan option will be called Dining Plan Plus, and will give guests 2 dining plan credits per day to use at either table service, character dining, or counter service locations.

According to DISboards member, sapphirerose915, the new plan will be “…2 credits like the middle plan, but they do not distinguish between table and counter credits!! Available as of 2/27!! No prices out yet”.

Members are wondering about the cost for the new dining plan addition, and how its inclusion will affect the overall pricing structure of the Disney Dining Plan. DISboards member, havoc315, had this to say:

“my educated guess is $15 increase — about $95 for adults.

Could be $20, taking it to $99. At $20…. it’s basically a break even increase, but depends on the person. A typical TS ala carte meal runs about $20 more than a CS on average, especially since some of those uses will be breakfast. (Can’t do 2 dinners in 1 night. So second credit is breakfast or lunch). And have to think on average, people aren’t going to get the most expensive entrees twice per day (2 steaks per day, every day?). So a $15 price increase would present people with a bit more savings, if they want to do more TS or signature.

A $20 increase would be more break even —— but would be big savings for those who do A LOT of buffets. Personally, I find this plan a bit restricting though it will depend on pricing. For a 5 day trip…
If you want almost all QS meals… QSDP
If you want 5 TS and 5QS, DDP
And now, DDP+ If you want 10 TS meals during that trip.
But if you want 7 TS and 3 QS? You like sit down meals but not 2 per day every day… This DDP+ allows it, but probably turns into a major economic waste, unless they actually price this plan cheaply…”
