    We arrive on Monday 22nd October 2012 for our 14th visit to Disney Orlando. This is our first year using the Disney Dining Plan & im wondering just how worth while is it? Is it easy to use & understand how it all works? Thanks guys!

    I think you will find the Disney Dining Plan to be very easy to use! It simplifies budgeting since you will know in advance exactly what your meals cost. Also, I like to use the website to look at restaurant menus. If you know ahead of time what you might order from each table service restaurant, then you can easily calculate the 18% gratuity on your total bill and budget to have that money available on the trip as well.

    Have you read the 2012 Dining Plan descriptions? They include lists of participating restaurants and an idea of what to expect as far as snacks that are included on the plans. Just select your plan from the menu on the right.

    Hope that helps!
