    Hi. I am confused while looking at the deluxe dining plan. It says 3 meals a day. Is that 3 table, quick service, or a combination of them. We usually do the table service plan, and are trying to decide to upgrade.

    Hi, Sara! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 

    The Deluxe Disney Dining Plan is my favorite of all the available dining plan options, so I'm happy to be helping you today. With this tasty plan, guests are entitled to 3 Table Service OR Quick Service meals per guest, for the number of nights for your stay - you're able to use the plan to meet your needs based on how you've planned your vacation time! However, to maximize your Disney Dining Plan dollars, you will definitely want to take advantage of as many Table Service meals as possible, as they are more "expensive" than Quick Service meals are. Here are a few of my favorite tips when vacationing with a Deluxe Disney Dining Plan:

    • Use your snack credits to purchase breakfast items to keep in your room. This way, you can have a light breakfast while getting ready for a magical day, and then use your dining plan credits to enjoy Signature Dining experiences for dinner. This strategy has helped my family enjoy all the Signature Dining Restaurants on-property that accept the dining plan!

    • If spending a good portion of your day enjoying dining experiences is a priority for your vacation, this is the perfect plan for you. If you have younger children who want to go, see, and do, the traditional dining plan, offering one Table Service meal a day, might be better suited for your needs right now. The Deluxe Plan is a lot of food and does take a lot of time, especially when wanting to maximize the value.
