    Hello, I was hoping for a few suggestions on how to make the most of our dining plan. Should we save our TS for dinners only and use our QS for lunch? Is there any rest. that you would suggest that we use our dining plan & then pay out of pocket for o

    Hi Ysenia,

    I like the Disney Dining plan because I know my vacation has been paid up front. It is even better when I can get the promotion for it to be free.

    You should look at how your family vacations to determine when to use the meal plan. If you are not big dinner eaters but big lunch eaters, than use the table service for lunch and the quick service for dinner. Also, if you are going to have a character breakfast, I would use the dining plan for this meal because they are some of the more expensive meals at the Walt Disney World Resorts.

    I would look on line for for menus with prices. Disney's will give you a price range of meals but will give you individual pricing. You can use this to gage which meal to buy with your own money. Of course, if you are not going to a signature restaurant or doing another two credit meal, you may not have to worry about this.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
