    Can a family of four eat for less then 216.00 dollars aday.The meal plan seems a little high in price.All we need is lunch and dinner every day.

    Hi Sandra - it depends on where you'll be dining.  Will your family only be dining at quick service locations or will you also be dining at table service venues?  When trying to figure out if the meal plan is a cost effective option for a family, I like to suggest doing a little research.  To accomplish this, I recommend visiting a site such as  In the dining section, you will see a list of restaurants, menus and prices.  You can map out (at least high level) where you wish to dine, what it would cost out of pocket and compare that to what you'd be paying for the dining plan.  For some families, it does save money - for others,  it does not.
