    We have 4 kids (ages 7, 6, 4, 1) and are looking at the Deluxe Dining Plan or Regular Dining Plan. The deluxe plan seems like it may be overkill for food, while the regular plan seems like it may not be enough with some things taking 2 meals. Any thoughts?

    Hey Kyle,

    The Disney Dining plan is the way to make your Walt Disney World vacation an all inclusive experience. I have taken 4 kids roughly the same ages as yours to WDW on the Basic Dining Plan and have had food leftover. My kids weren't interested much in eating once they got to WDW. I made sure we did a sit-down Table Service each day. For us that was usually breakfast because the kids were to exhausted to sit through dinner. So we would use our counter services for them during the day and they would split food so many times that we just never used all of our counter services or snacks. You know your kids better than anyone though. My kids are just not big "foodies". But I have to say I have never been brave enough to just get the Quick Service Plan either. We do like the big sit down buffets at our favorite restaurants. As far as the meals that require 2 Table Services, we budgeted that out as part of our spending budget during the vacation and paid for them ourselves.  Those are my thoughts. I hope this gives you al little insight. Have a great vacation.
