    What is the best dining plan for 2 adults and one child age 5

    Hi Jim - as you probably know, there are a variety of dining plans available to you and it can get confusing.  The answer lies in what your eating/drinking habits will be while on vacation, and of course, your budget.  If you plan on only enjoying only the quick service meals, then this is the plan you would choose.  However, with a 5 year old, I'm assuming you may want to add some character meals to your itinerary and if that is the case, you may want to consider going with the regular dining plan that will allow you one sit down meal, one quick service meal and one snack per night of your stay.  This is the plan our family finds works best for us and we have more then enough food to enjoy.

    But wait, there's more!  Because every guest varies with their desires, there are other dining plans available.  You can read about all the dining plans here before making your choice.  If you have any additional specific questions, just let us know!

    Also, in case you haven't heard, Disney recently announced a free dining offer that you might be able to take advantage of.  You can read the details here.

    Have a wonderful vacation!  Diane
