    Is the dining plan worth it if we do Conceirge? We have two young boys who love an early breakfast and snacks before bedtime.

    Great question Christine!  We do not use the dining plan when we are staying on concierge floors.  We found that we enjoyed the breakfast choices and also the day snacks served in their lounges.  In the evening the hot appetizer treats were always favorites followed by the sweet "after 8" dessert choices.

    The concierge lounges begin serving their breakfasts at 7am.  If this is not early enough for your boys you might consider storing some cereal and milk from the lounge in your room refrigerator.  As far as snacks go I would also take a couple extra cookies and/or some of the fish crackers or popcorn and just keep a bit in your room for the "before bedtime munchies".  You can have as much soda and water you need throughout the day and can ask for special requests like juices. They are always willing to help in any way they can.

    With all the food offered in the concierge lounges we realized that we did not need to eat anything more then one table service meal a day and light snacking for the other meal.  In fact we often had the big meal at lunch and then enjoyed the hot offerings back at the hotel around 5 or 6pm.
