Seasonal Dining Information WDW Restaurants

WDW seasonal dining pricingDuring certain times of the year, particularly holidays, many of the Walt Disney World dining locations experience a large increase in guest demand.  As a result, Disney has implemented seasonal dining pricing for many of the fixed-price dining locations (buffets and character meals) during the following periods:

  • President’s Day: from the weekend prior to President’s Day through the weekend after President’s Day
  • Spring Break/Easter: select dates from the second week of March until the week after Easter, these dates can really vary from year to year depending on when Easter falls
  • Summer Season: June through early August
  • Christmas/New Years Holidays: from mid-December through the first few days of January, may carry through to the marathon weekend


On average with seasonal dining increases guests can expect to pay an additional $4 for ages 10 and above, and $2 for children ages 3 – 9.

During holidays, seasonal dining price increases extend to some table service restaurants, as well as buffets and character meals. Look to pay increased prices during Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.  Sone restaurants also have special menus with special pricing on holidays.
