    Good morning! Staying 7 nights at the Wilderness lodge the week before Easter. Wondering, when does the dining plan make economic sense? We have ADRS for dinner at Whispering Canyon, Teppan Edo, California Grill, The Wave, Wolfgang Puck, and Boma.

    Hi Colby, given the amount of advanced dining reservations that you already have, I think the dining plan probably makes economic sense for you.

    To determine if it's a good idea, take a look at the menus online and get a general idea of what you think you'll spend (I usually use the menus on  I like to do a rough map of where I'm eating and what I'll spend, both with the dining plan and without.  Once you have those numbers, you should be able to make a decision. For my family, we've always found that the dining plan is best for us.

    I hope that helps!
