5. Disney Dining Discounts for Florida Residents

In the past, Disney has offered discounts to Florida residents on dining. One such program is/was called Tables in Wonderland.

Until 2021, Florida residents could join Tables in Wonderland for $175 a year. Sadly, the program has been suspended, and Disney has not yet indicated a return date. We are hopeful it will resume shortly and want to include the information below in case it does.

What is/was the Tables in Wonderland program?

Florida residents can/could benefit from Tables in Wonderland’s discount dining program, which offers a 20% discount on food and beverages (including alcohol) at over 100 restaurants and lounges at Disney World parks and hotels.

In addition to 20% off food and beverages, membership includes complimentary resort/hotel parking (including valet parking) at resort restaurants, reimbursement for theme park parking at theme park restaurants, and invitations to exclusive member-only events (such as the Chef’s Table Experience at the Contemporary Resort).

A Tables in Wonderland purchase is/was valid for one year following its date of purchase.

The member must be present and must provide the discount card when ordering.

There are blackout dates for Tables in Wonderland, including holidays such as  Mother’s Day, Easter Sunday,4th of July, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day.

Again, we hope Disney resumes the Tables in Wonderland program OR offers a worthy replacement for Florida residents shortly.
