    First trip-- 2 adults, 3 kids (8, 5,4) small/average eaters. Don't like the idea of being tied to reservations for dinner every night- would the Quick Service plan be enough food and we could pay our way for a table dinner a couple of times if we wanted?

    You certainly could pay as you go for a table-service meal here and there, Jennifer, assuming you can get a table.  Many of Disney's most popular restaurants fill up quickly, leaving little if any room for walk-up diners.  If I were you, I'd probably go ahead and reserve one or two table service meals at the restaurants that hold the most appeal for your family.  If you are too tired or busy to make the reservation, simply cancel it.

    The quick-service meal plan may very well be plenty sufficient for your family.  In my experience, the quantity of food offered at Disney's quick-service locations isn't noticeably different than what is given in most table-service locations.  The difference, often times, is selection and food quality.  Not that there's anything wrong with chicken strips and burgers, but you're more likely to find more varied (and often times healthier) options in the table-service locations.  Hope that helps!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
