    Hi Michelle!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Unfortunately there is no easy answer to this question as it really depends on where you dine and what each member of your party might order.  A good rule of thumb is the Disney Dining Plan is definitely worth it if you are going to be doing several Disney Character Dining Experiences.  After that you really have to do the math.  To help, I suggest visiting the independent website AllEars.Net.  At All Ears, you can see the menu, including prices, for all of the restaurants in Walt Disney World.  Then knowing where you plan on dining, and what each member of your party might order, you can decide what makes the most sense.

    Good luck and please write back with more questions!
