    Hi, I am trying to plan a 5-7 day Disney vacation to celebrate my DD 4th b-day. I am trying to decide if it's best to have the dining plan plus sit down dinner or is it better to do the quick meal option and just pay for the character meal? Suggestions?

    Hi Jeryl!!!

    I just recently enjoyed my son's fourth birthday at the Walt Disney World Resort and had such a magical trip celebrating his birthday!!  I have also purchased both the Quick-Service Dining Plan and the regular Disney Dining Plan and have enjoyed them both.

    If you are planning on doing one Table Service/Character Dining Experience per day, then I would recommend purchasing the regular Disney Dining Plan.  If you are only looking at one or two Table Service/Character Dining Experiences for your entire trip, then I would purchase the Quick-Service Dining Plan and pay for those sit down meals out of pocket.  

    I hope this helps and that you have a magical day!!
