    Is the Disney dining plan worth the extra cost?

    Hi Candace!

    My family loves the Disney Dining Plan because enjoy the delicious foods and dining experiences throughout the Walt Disney World parks and resorts is one of our favorite parts of visiting! 

    I definitely feel like the Disney Dining Plan is not only worth the cost, but it saves a ton of money and stress. We eat all of our meals in the parks and resorts and we stay on site, so we definitely save money using the plan. You can book all of your Advanced Dining Reservations 180 in advance, so you will know where you are eating, on which day and time. I also prefer the Disney Dining Plan over the Quick Service Disney Dining Plan because we like to enjoy Table Service meals at places like Flying Fish, Beaches & Cream and California Grill. Also, make sure to maximize the value of your snacks by choosing some of the best treats like the Dole Whip at Aloha Isle, the ice cream cookie sandwich at Main Street Bakery and the cheese filled pretzel at Lunching Pad. 

    I hope this helps you decide what is best for your family.
