    We are a family of 6 (2 adults, and 4 kids ages 2,6, and 2 9 yr old), how much money should we budget for dining at WDW for 5 nights?

    Hi Tameshia!

    That is a good question!  It really depends on what your family likes to eat and which restaurants you visit.  There are both Table Service (full service) and Quick Service (think fast food) restaurants at Walt Disney World; likewise there are more expensive and less expensive restaurants within each group.

    I recommend visiting the independent website AllEars.Net.  There you can find all of the menus, with prices, for all of the Table Service and Quick Service restaurants at Walt Disney World.  The team at All Ears does a great job keeping their information up to date.  Then you can decide how much you would probably spend in which restaurants.

    By the way, you should also consider a Disney Dining Plan.  Whether you would save money or not depends on how your family dines, but you will have all the information you need by figuring out how much you think you would spend each day on dining.

    Enjoy planning your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation and write back if you have any more questions!
