    I bought the basic dining plan. I dont have reservations for the table meals -its too hard with small kids, I have no idea what the days will be like.Will we be able to get into any of the restaurants?Can I, and should I switch to the quick service plan?

    Hi, Melissa,   The Disney Dining Plan is a great value if you are able to use up all your dining credits.   If you do not plan to do many table service or character meals, you might be better off changing to the Quick Service plan.

    Depending on your travel dates, you might luck out and get seated without Advance Dining Reservations.  However, you  would have to be extremely flexible in this situation, and be prepared for long waits and off-peak dining times.   With small kids, this might not work for you.

    I think the Quick Service plan is a great option for you.   With this plan, you get 2 Quick Service Meals and 2 snacks per night of your package,  plus the resort refillable mug.   For a PDF outline of this plan, click HERE.

    If you decide to change your dining plan, you must do so at least 2 days prior to your check-in date by calling (407)W-DISNEY.    If you decided to keep your current dining plan and want to make Advance Dining Reservations, call (407)WDW-DINE.

    Whatever you decide, have a great time and I hope you find some great places to eat!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
