This sounds like something that will be popular for people who don’t want to commit to a whole dining plan and for locals. I think it’s a great idea and I hope it sticks around!
I’m talking about the announcement that Disney World will soon start a ‘Dine-on-the-Go’ program which will allow guests to purchase a scaled back dining plan for a single day. This plan includes lunch (until 4 p.m.) and dinner (after 4 p.m.) at quick-service restaurants. Both meals include one entree and on non-alcoholic beverage. Dessert is not included.
Right now, this will only be available in the Magic Kingdom. It sounds like it is a test run, because it starts on January 12 and runs until February 22. I’m hoping that it will be popular for the test run and become available in all the parks.
The cost for the plan is $29 for adults and $12 for kids ages 3-9. In order to purchase the certificates for the ‘Dine-on-the-Go’ program you need to have valid park admission to Magic Kingdom. The certificates are available at any Magic Kingdom Park Vacation planning booth.
Here are some of the restaurants that are included:
- Casey’s Corner
- Columbia Harbour House
- Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe
- Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe
- Pinocchio Village Haus
Looking at the menus, I would say the best values are at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe and Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe, followed by Columbia Harbour House, then Pinocchio Village Haus, and finally Casey’s Corner.
It will be interesting to see how this scaled back dining plan does. Would you try the ‘Dine-on-the-Go’ plan?
