What is the Disney Dining Plan?

The Disney Dining Plan is a pre-paid meal plan where, depending on which plan you purchase, a certain number of points are encoded onto your Magic Band which you can then use to purchase your meals with. When it’s time to pay for your meal, you will show your Magic Band and the server or cashier will scan it. Points will then be deducted from your account rather than you having to pay cash for it.  There are 3 different plans to choose from at different price points so different needs can be met.
