    Since there are so many plans, I thought I would make a sticky so people can compare.

    Magic Your Way Plus Quick Service Dining Details:
    The Plan costs $29.99 per night for adults and $8.99 per night for children (3-9) with travel dates in 2009 starting from January 11, 2009.

    For each night of your stay you will receive:

    Two quick service meal– lunch and dinner includes entrée, dessert and non-alcoholic beverage, or full combo meal: usually entrée, side dish, dessert and non-alcoholic beverage. Quick service breakfasts include a juice, entrée and a nonalcoholic beverage.

    Two snack– such as a snack-cart ice cream, box of popcorn, medium soft drink or a bottle of water at select counter-service and snack-cart locations. Disney is very flexible about what guests choose as snacks, and many items under $4 are fair game. Look for the purple DDP snack symbol to identify restaurants, food carts and merchandise locations that accept the DDP.

    One resort refillable drink mug – One resort refillable drink mug is supplied per guest per trip on the Quick Service Dining Plan. The resort refillable mug is good for refills at the guest's resort.

    Using Table Service Credits

    Table service credits may be used in many different combinations, at over 100 participating restaurants on Walt Disney World Property. Here are some of the ways guests may use credits:

    Character Dining: Character dining is included as table credit options, and one table service credit is redeemed for each person dining. (Cinderella's Royal Table is the exception; meals at CRT are two-credits per person).

    Signature Dining: A number of restaurants on property are categorized as Signature Dining and two credits must be redeemed for meals at these locations. These venues include: Jiko – The Cooking Place at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, Flying Fish Café at Disney's BoardWalk Resort, California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort, Cítricos at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Narcoossee's at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Artist Point at Disney's Wilderness Lodge, Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resorts, and Hollywood Brown Derby at the Disney Hollywood Studios. There is a dress code at all but the Hollywood Brown Derby; tank tops, swimsuits or swimsuit cover-ups, caps, cut-offs or torn clothing of any kind are not permitted.

    Dinner Shows: DDP credits may be used for Category 2 and 3 seating at the following shows: Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue, Mickey's Backyard BBQ (seasonal), both located at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, or Disney's Spirit of Aloha Show at Disney's Polynesian Resort. Credits may be used for Category 1 seating at Hoop-Dee-Doo for the 9:30 pm show. Dinner Shows offer family-style dining with live entertainment show performances throughout the meal, themed to the Resort setting.

    Show tickets can be acquired through Concierge. All Dinner Shows require Advance Reservations. Gratuities are included.

    There are also premium and platinum packages which include dining and recreation. Here are the 2009 brochures for each

    Other Things You Should Know

    To book your Advance Dining Reservations, call 1-407-WDW-DINE or contact your Travel Counselor.

    Advance Dining Reservations are highly recommended and in many instances essential for dining at many restaurants participating on the DDP.

    To purchase the DDP, guests must either be booked at a Disney resort on a package (a reservation including tickets), be an annual pass holder, or they must be staying on points in Disney Vacation Club accommodations.

    Any credits that are not used by midnight on the day of check-out are lost.

    You may not use your dining credits to redeem meals or snacks for people who are not on your DDP.

    An 18% gratuity will be added automatically for parties of six or more. A gratuity may also be added automatically on items you order that are not included in the DDP (e.g. alcoholic beverages).

    The DDP is not available for children under three, but they may share from an adult plate, at no charge, or purchase a meal from the menu.

    You can use your meals and snacks in any combination you choose. Two table service meals one day, three counter service meals the next, only snacks and a meal paid "out of pocket" on the third. You decide!

    The plan is also very convenient, as your MYW dining plan credits will tracked on your Key to the World card. Guests simply present their card to the cast member to "pay" for the meals using the dining plan. Meal usage will be tracked electronically and each time you use the dining plan your receipt will indicate your remaining meal balance.

    This plan is that is allows you to pre-pay your meals. When you arrive at Disney World, most of your vacation is already paid for.
