    Is Dining Plan (1 snack, 1 quick service, 1 table service) enough food? My 8 & 5 yr old are used to eating 3 meals a day, plus 1 or 2 snacks. Do you end up paying for a meal w/this plan? What if you go to character dining and have to use 2 table servic

    Hi Abigail!  My family usually purchases the original dining plan with one snack, one quick service, and one table service, and we find that it's pretty appropriate for our family meals with a few "out of pocket" purchases. 

    Typically, we end up paying cash for any two table service dining experiences, and maybe one other meal.  Other than that, the meal plan comes pretty close to our needs.

    I'd recommend that you map out your table service reservations, and then just draft what meals you think you'll need.  The deluxe dining plan is available for those whose needs are greater than the original plan provides.  But, for my family, the original plan is almost enough food.

    Have a great vacation!
