Universal Dining Plans

Universal has several dining plans. These plans may or may not save you money, depending on what you eat and how much soda you drink. For example, if you order the most expensive meals and snacks off every menu, you may be able to save with a quick service dining plan. If you order only the cheapest things, you will not save much - in fact, you may not save anything at all. If you drink a lot of soda, you may be able to save money with a Coca-Cola Freestyle Cup, but if you don't drink a lot of soda in the park, the Coca-Cola Freestyle Cup will cost you more than you might spend by buying single beverages whenever you are thirsty. Dining plan options include:

  • Universal Dining Plan - This plan costs $63.98 (tax inclusive) and includes one full service meal (one entrée, one non-alcoholic beverage, and one dessert), one quick service meal (one entrée and one non-alcoholic beverage), one snack from a food cart or quick service restaurant, and one non-alcoholic beverage from a food cart or quick service restaurant. This plan can only be purchased with a vacation package
  • Universal Dining Plan - Quick Service - This plan costs $23.99 plus tax and includes one quick service meal (one entrée and one non-alcoholic beverage), one snack from a food cart or quick service restaurant, and one non-alcoholic beverage from a food cart or quick service restaurant.
  • Universal Dining Plan - Quick Service + Coca-Cola Freestyle Cup - This plan costs $29.99 plus tax and includes one quick service meal (one entrée and one non-alcoholic beverage), one snack from a food cart or quick service restaurant, and a souvenir cup with unlimited refills at Coca-Cola Freestyle machines for the whole day.
