    Deluxe Dining vs Regular. Will be with our 4 yr old.. Better to do deluxe and be set or do regular and take cereal, etc and just buy breakfast if we want different? Trying to decide if the $500 difference is worth it if we don't do table meals every meal?

    Hi Brandi,

    What a great question about the Disney Dining Plan! I hope I can provide you some guidance.

    I rarely think the Deluxe is worth it unless you are going to a lot of Signature Dining restaurants or a dinner show is a must. When my family purchases the plan, we use the standard plan. This provides us with a snack, a table service meal and a counter service meal and a refillable mug.

    For our family, we will eat breakfast in the room by just bringing cereal from home or ordering from an online grocer like the Garden Grocer. Or we use the counter service meal at breakfast and the split lunches. We do always have a table service dinner.

    Since you are not planning on table service every meal, I would save the money.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
