    I'm planning on visiting Disney during Christmas time with my family, and purchased the quick service meal plan for us. I've made two reservations at a restaurant (most are already booked). Do you think I should upgrade to the deluxe meal plan?

    Hi, Vanessa!
    That's a really great question. Thanks for reaching out to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    From my experience with the Disney Dining Plan, moving beyond the Quick Service meal plan is worth the extra expense if you have plans to enjoy one Table Service reservation each day you visit and you plan to eat a lot of food. When you pre-pay for your meals on the plan, you still need to pay the tip. Those tips can end up costing as much as a Quick Service meal! If you don't think your family will need to eat a lot during those table service meals, you will probably not need to make the upgrade.

    Enjoy your visit! Whatever dining experience you choose, I know you'll have a magical time!
