    Is buying a dining plan worthwhile for a family of 5?

    Hi Angie - I find that the standard dining plan, with one table service meal, one quick service meal, and one snack is a great deal for families.  My family loves getting the dining plan, because it's really flexible, and offers us a good value for the cost.  It tends to be cheaper for us to get the plan than it is for us to pay cash for each meal.

    If you plan on eating all of your meals at Walt Disney World, it's likely to be a great value for you also. There are three plans, so depending on the types of meals you are going to have, you will find one that's best for your family.

    Have a great vacation!
