    My kids are not big eaters. Is the dining plan worth it? 700+$ seems like a lot of food for 1 adult, a 10 year old and a 13 year old.

    Hi M,

    I think that if your children are not big or picky eaters then save the money to spend on ticket upgrades, a dinner show or a fancier resort.

    I find that the meals at the Walt Disney World resorts are large. Often my husband and I share meals. My children are about your children's age, and while they sometimes can eat full adult meal, they often do not want all that food so I see your concern with going with the meal plan.

    The meal plan is great for big eaters or for guest who like to dine at finer restaurants which almost makes dining a prix fix meal.

    Have a magical vacation!
