    Still debating on whether to pay the difference to upgrade from free dining to deluxe. Would have to pay adult rate for our 10 yr.old.Would love to hear more pros/cons from someone who has tried the Delxue plan. Would you do it again?

    Hi Ben - I've done a lot of analyzing of the dining plans, and for our family, the deluxe dining plan just wasn't worth the additional money.

    As a rule of thumb, in order to make it work, you need to use about two table service credits per day.  So, if you are planning to eat at many signature restaurants, it's probably worth the additional expense.

    But, if you may only use one or two per day, it's probably best to stick with the free dining and pay out of pocket for any additional expenses.  That usually works out better than buying the dining plan for your entire stay.

    I hope that helps!  Have a great vacation!
