This programme used to be known as DDE – Disney Dining Experience. It consists of a card that you purchase which then gives you the following benefits:-
- 20% discount on food and beverages INCLUDING alcholic beverages
- Resort and Theme park parking for dining purposes
- Invitations to special food and wine events
- Complimentary resort valet services – 1 vehicle per membership card
- (NOTE: It also adds 18%, or 20% at victoria & albert onto your check whatever your party size)
Is it worth it and what about the dining plan?
Well you have to decide on the dining plan v the tables in wonderland really, they don’t play particularly well together. The standard dining plan doesn’t include alcohol whereas the TiW does which can make quite a difference. Even though there is an enforced 18% minimum gratuity now on this programme, it’s still well worth it for most people.

How do I get my card?
Once your application is received, it takes about 2 weeks for your card to be processed and delivered to your address. It used to be the case that you had to book it before your arrival but since November 2007 you may now buy a card or renew at Guest relations at any of the theme parks as well as Downtown Disney.

Can anyone get one?
No, you need to be a Florida resident, annual or seasonal pass holder or a cast member. However, because anyone can buy an annual pass, TECHNICALLY you can get this card whoever you are and indeed it may make financial sense to consider this when you’re thinking whether to buy an annual pass or not
