    We are giving our daughter a birthday present of staying at the Boardwalk Villas in march 2010.  She will be there with 3 of her GFs.  Should I include a mean plan for them?

    Hi Lealand!

    Wow, what a wonderful birthday gift! Your daughter must be very excited!

    I am a big fan of the dining plans because they are easy to use and make your vacation more worry-free. When you have a dining plan, you don't have to worry about paying the bill at the end of your meal. You just redeem your credits and pay for any extras like cocktails and the gratuity. You don't have to worry about budgeting for all of your meals because the majority of it has already been paid in advance. It's also nice not to have to worry about the prices on the menu and just order what you want!

    Another plus to the dining plan is that it can really save you money in the long run. In my experience, our actual dining costs have always been more than what we paid for the dining plan. Most restaurants on property accept the plan, and it is also convenient for quick snacks throughout the day.

    If your daughter and her friends plan to have at least one sit down meal each day or wish to dine at any of the signature restaurants, I would absolutely suggest adding the dining plan!

    I hope this helps!
