I used to be a Tables in Wonderland discount dining card holder, and if my finances ever allow, I will join up again. The food discounts are totally worth it if you enjoy sit-down dining at Walt Disney World’s parks and resorts. But the benefits don’t end there. Tables in Wonderland often has some amazing food and drink based events that are truly a Disney fans dream.
Their latest event will take attendees to the set of the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular for a themed dinner that only Disney can produce. The event is April 30th and the $160 tickets are on sale right now. You must be a member to attend.

If you have enough money or are lucky enough to belong to a company with good taste, you can dine…
Tables in Wonderland, formerly the Disney Dining Experience, is a program available to Florida residents and annual passholders that gives a 20% discount on dining locations around the resort. We used to belong, but quit because our favorite location was no longer included. Looks like they’ve just added that location back along with a number of others.
New as of January 2010!
Epcot®: Tokyo Dining Location Only (Not Teppan Edo)
Disney’s BoardWalk Resort: Kouzzina by Cat Cora (formerly Spoodles)
Disney’s Wide World of Sports: ESPN® Sports Cafe
DOWNTOWN DISNEY® Marketplace: Fulton’s Crab House
DOWNTOWN DISNEY® Pleasure Island: Portobello
DOWNTOWN DISNEY® West Side: House of Blues®, Wolfgang Puck® Cafe
Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort: Il Mulino New York Trattoria, Kimonos, Shula’s Steak House, Todd English’s bluezoo
If you plan on dining out at WDW sit down restaurants (keep in mind that DAK has three counter service locations on the plan, plus a buffet) and spending more than $550 over the course of the year on food and drinks at those locations, then the Tables in Wonderland card makes sense for you. For some locations (Jiko, California Grill) that’s just a couple of meals if you include a wine flight.
