    Hi! Can you give me some insight about the size of the meals in Table Service/Quick Service restaurants? I'm worried because my family do not eat a lot but we preferred the Deluxe plan in order to have 3 full meals each day. Wouldn't like to waste the food

    Hi Claudia!

    Quick Service meals at Walt Disney World are really quite filling although the selection is a lot more limited than what you will find at a Table Service restaurant.  The quality and size is a little more than what you would get at most fast food restaurants outside the parks, but you are certainly not limited to just burger and fries.  With the Disney Dining Plan, a Quick Service meal will include a non alcoholic beverage, entree and a dessert.  I found that many times I couldn't finish the dessert at the end of my quick service meals and I am not a particularly light eater.
    Table Service meals are much more substantial with portion and selections, these meals are very filling .  Disney's Deluxe Dining Plan not only includes three meals a day (Quick Service or Table Service), but also 2 snacks a day.  The best way to really use this plan is to make reservations at some of Disney's Signature restaurants such as Cinderella's Royal Table or Artist's Point which take 2 Table Service Credits.  I normally use those for dinner reservations which leaves 1 credit to use for lunch and then use my snack credits for breakfast.
    Disney's Deluxe Dining Plan is a great way to enjoy many of Disney's spectacular restaurants, but it really is a lot of food.  Trying to eat 3 Table Service meals in one day plus 2 snack credits was just a little too much for my family and we're not light eaters.  We did end up with a lot of unused snack credits, which we were able to use for some prepackaged snacks to bring home with us.  Another thing to keep in mind is that it takes a lot more time to dine at a Table Service location than a Quick Service,  which can take away a good portion of your park time.  I hope this helps and please let us know if we can help answer any more of your questions!

    Enjoy your Disney Time!
