    Hi Disney Panel, We are planning a family vacation for 2016. There will be 5 adults and 2 teens. We are wanting to do the dining plan so we need to go cheap on resort. What are some ideas for the resort? We are paying for the whole vacation. Thank you

    Welcome Teresa,

    We love early planners here at the Moms Panel.  It gives us plenty of time to offer our expert advice so that you can plan a magical vacation for your family.  The Disney Dining Plan is a great way to go because all your meals are prepaid and that's one less thing to worry about while you're at the Walt Disney World Resort. Traveling with five adults and two teens, you will need to book two rooms.  My recommendation is to book accommodations at the Value Resorts which are for budget minded families like yourself, and you'll get all the benefits of staying on property.  

    Since you're in the early stages of planning your trip, I know you'll have more questions, so please come back and visit us anytime.  We're here to help. 

    See ya real soon, 

    Leanne T.

Walt Disney captured my heart as a little girl and has not let go since. As a parent and grandparent, I have been to the Walt Disney World Resort with children of all ages, and also as empty nesters. I would like to share my years of experience so that you are able to start your own tradition of Walt Disney World memories, just as I have. Learn More About Leanne
