    My boyfriend and I are planning on going to disney in August is a Dinning Plan worth it for just two people. Also do you know any good restaurts for a couple that doesn't have alot of money but still wants to eat great food.

    Ah, young love! How awesome that you and your boyfriend are planning to visit Disney World together in August, Caitlin. I hear it's also a great place to propose and/or get married. Just sayin'.

    If you're tight on money (because he just bought a ring,) I'd say pass on the Dining Plan. It's a set price each day and it sounds like you'll want more wiggle room. You can save money by sharing meals, dining at different times, and bringing items in your suitcase (peanut butter, bread, granola bars, etc.) for breakfast in your room.

    You can keep dining prices down by doing lunch instead of dinner at restaurants. The dinner menus and lunch menus tend to be suspiciously similar, however, the lunch portions will be a tad smaller and the prices will be lower.

    Also consider sharing meals. You can get a lot of mileage by sharing a flatbread and an appetizer at places such as California Grill, Jiko and Chefs de France. Via Napoli at Epcot also has some quality sharing options, as does La Hacienda (especially with the free chips and multiple types of salsa.)

    Best counter service value? Wolfgang Puck Express at Downtown Disney.
