Over the last couple of years, Walt Disney World has introduced an increasing number of “dining” and “dessert” packages.

Prices vary but are typically from $39 (for breakfast) up to $99 for adults, less for children aged 3 to 9. Some prices include tax and gratuities whereas others do not. Some packages are eligible for the Disney Dining Plan.

The dining packages offer a meal plus access to one of the attractions and/or reserved viewing of a show or parade. The choice of breakfast, lunch or dinner varies by package.

With the dessert parties, the concept is that you attend a dessert party (typically in the evening) and as well as a selection of snacks, desserts and drinks, you get priority/reserved access to one of the attractions and/or shows such as the evening fireworks or the afternoon parade.

The parties tend to be seasonal and are only available on select dates. As well as the price of the dining package or dessert party you also need an admission ticket to the appropriate theme park except for the Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Cruise.
