    Hello. I'm new to this panel and it's very informative. My family and I are visiting Disney for the 3rd time. We normally purchase the regular dining plan. Is there any big difference/advantage in possibly upgrading to the premium dining plan?

    The biggest advantage, Lisa, is more food and more freedom.  The deluxe dining plan offers guests three meal credits per day; you're free to use them on table-service meals or quick-service meals.  Whereas guests on the regular dining plan are limited to a certain amount of table service meals, guests on the deluxe plan have ultimate freedom.  For foodies (like me!) that is a big advantage.  I'm hoping to visit Disney on the deluxe dining plan someday, mostly because I'd love the freedom to try as many table-service restaurants as possible.  If you're adventurous when it comes to dining, and you'd appreciate the freedom to dine around the world, then the deluxe dining plan might be worth it for your family.  It all depends on how you intend to use those meal credits.  Good luck with your decision!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

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
