« back to Disneyland Special Offers
Hi Amanda! I saw that DL also has a dining plan & I was wondering if you had more info about it & if it is worth it. Also we have done dining plan in WDW, but we got it free, I was wondering if DL ever offers free dining plan as any of their specia

Hi Stephanie! It's a pleasure to answer your question...especially since it deals with two of my favorite things...Disneyland and FOOD!
While I am quite possibly the Disney Dining Plan's biggest fan EVER, I must say that Disneyland's Dining Plan is not up to par and is structured completely different from that of Walt Disney World's (WDW). The WDW Dining Plan actually offers guests a substantial savings on meals while Disneyland's plan is based more upon convenience than savings.
Disneyland's Dine in the Magic plan is basically a voucher system which enables guests conveniently to prepay for meals prior to arrival. I thought you might find the following link helpful.

Hopefully this will help you understand it a little better, as the Disney website doesn't offer a very clear explanation:
Disneyland Dining Plan Information
I sure do wish Disneyland would adopt a Dining Plan similar to that of WDW, and that they would offer a free dining promotion as well, because there are soooo many fabulous restaurants scattered across the Disneyland Resort. My favorites include Steakhouse 55
, Napa Rose
, Blue Bayou
, and Cafe Orleans
. Be sure to give them a try and please let me know if I can answer any additional questions!
