    Hi! I'm traveling next week with husband & sons (1&2 yrs). We have not purchased a dining plan within the vacation package but are considering the Quick Service.Does it really represent a saving or would it cost us the same to purchase meals there?

    Hi Maria!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!

    This is a really hard question to answer as it really depends on where you dine and what each member of your party might order.  I can tell you that you need to use up all of your meal and snack credits; not using a meal credit before it expires definitely doesn't help from a value point of view.  I also have a suggestion, which is to visit the independent website AllEars.Net.  At All Ears you can find the menu, including prices, for all of the Quick Service and Table Service locations at Walt Disney World.  Then you can do the math to see what makes the most sense for your family.

    Good luck with your decision, and please write back with more questions!
