    My family and I are coming to Disney World in late March and we have purchased the Dining Plan. Is this something that's worth purchasing and what are some of the tips to get the most out of our dining plan?

    Hello, Melissa,

    We have opted to purchased the Disney Dining Plan several times. Through careful planning, we did save several hundred dollars each time. To help you decide if it would be a good match, I'd encourage you to do an internet search for a couple of articles that will help you to see if the dining plans would be beneficial for your family:
    • Could the Disney Dining Plan Save You Money by Stacey Lantz
    • The Disney Dining Plan Exposed by Stacey Lantz
    To further help with planning, you can do additional searches of the phrase Best Deals at since there is a nice assortment of articles to help you maximize your dollars through the Disney Dining Plan. 

    I think the collection of these various articles will help you to weigh the pros and cons of the Disney Dining Plan and your family.  Please let us know if we can help with any further questions.
