    Feeling overwhelmed with planning out each day's meals with the basic Dining Plan. For example, if we go to Chef Mickey's for breakfast buffet, we only have a snack or counter service to use at lunch and dinner. How do I plan for this?

    Hi Megan! Try not to be overwhelmed! Disney dining is fantastic, and planning meals is one of our highlights! For us, we always seems to have plenty of credits. We usually have breakfast in the room - I bring cereal bars and buy some fruit (and yogurt if we have a fridge). My daughter and I often share a quick service meal if we know the portion size is large, leaving us with a few extra credits. We also usually do one or two signature meals, so I will pay out of pocket for a less expensive meal. No matter how we do it, we never seem to be hungry at Disney World!

    Hope this helps Megan. Have a magical vacation!
