    We have our Disney trip booked for August 17 this year and we are going to be staying for 9 days. This is for moms who have used the dining plans. It is my husband my 7 year ould daughter and myself. Is the 600 dollars worth the quick service dining plan?

    Hi Maria!

    Since you are going for such a long time, I suggest a different path to saving money.  I would consider purchasing an Annual Pass for one person in the party and then trying to get an Annual Pass discount for your trip in August.  If you can get the Annual Pass discount on your hotel room then it's definitely worth getting a Tables in Wonderland dining discount card and using that instead of a Disney Dining Plan.  However, that's really only a good choice if you would actually have a meal once per day in a Table Service (full service) restaurant.  Since you mentioned the Quick Service Dining Plan, maybe you have no interest in Table Service.

    If you can't get an Annual Pass discounted room or it's not much better than your current room price, then you would have to do the math to be sure which option is better.  However, based on my personal experiences and how my family dines at Walt Disney World, I recommend going with Tables in Wonderland card, but again you would actually have to have some Table Service meals!

    If you absolutely know you are only interested in Quick Service, then you definitely should not get a Tables in Wonderland card.  Good luck with your decision and write back if you have any more questions!.
