    Hello! We have the deluxe Disney dining plan and have a reservation at Artist’s Point. I see that it’s shared appetizers...do they do anything differently because we have the deluxe plan? I feel like we won’t get as good of value.

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Trishna! Are you so excited that you're about to leave for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation? One of my favorite things to do when I'm planning my trip is dream about the things I'm going to eat, so let's chat about using your Disney Dining Plan and how to get the most out of it when you're there.

    I use the Disney Dining Plan a lot and I think that buffets and family-style meals, like the one that you've booked for yourself at Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White, are still a great value when you're using the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan. You're right, the appetizers are included in the cost of the meal but the price has been adjusted to reflect that so it's not as if the appetizer you're entitled to is going to waste. In fact, there will be three appetizers brought to your table so you'll get to try several different dishes! Buffets, Character Dining, and family-style meals are actually some of the best deals when you're using the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan because they do tend to have that higher price tag and there is entertainment included as well which makes it an even better value. Since Story Book Dining at Artist Point with Snow White is currently only one meal credit, it sits up there for me as one of the best choices for getting the most out of the Dining Plan.

    I hope this answers your question, Trishna, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation!
