    We are bringing our 2 yo daughter to Disney for the first time in July. Which would feed her better, feeding her off us on the Deluxe Dining Plan, the Dining Plan or just winging it without the Dining Plans? Think in terms of cost and quantity of food. Thx

    Hi Amanda - I almost always recommend getting the Disney Dining Plan, especially if you won't have a car and are planning to eat the majority of your meals at Walt Disney World.  It's usually a better deal than paying out of pocket for all of those meals.  Generally, there's enough food for your daughter to eat off of your plate, and if you are eating at a buffet, you can make her a separate plate.

    As for the Deluxe Dining Plan - I generally only recommend that if you think you'll eat an average of at least two table service meals per day.  Otherwise, it's probably not worth the added expense. 

    I hope that helps!  Have a great vacation!
