    Hi Kirsten, can you recommend whether we should do a dining plan on our next trip for my husband, myself and our 3 year old and how does it work with character dining?

    Hello again Cynthia!

    It's so nice to hear from you again.
    Personally, I absolutely love the Disney Dining Plan, and have enjoyed the savings benefits and flexible dining options since my own Princess was just your daughter's age!

    If you do enjoy at least one 'nice' table service meal daily, and plan to partake in some Character Dining Experiences, it's definitely well worth your while! All Character Dining experiences are a part of the Disney Dining Plan. Most experiences are just 1 Table Service Credit, however Cinderella's Royal Table is 2 Credits. "Dinner Shows" are also 2 Credits under the plan.

    There are plenty of fantastic experiences your daughter would enjoy which are 1 Credit. Top recommendations include Akershus, 1900 Park Fare dinner, Chef Mickey's and Disney Junior Play 'n Dine at Hollywood & Vine. Character Dining reservations are very popular and should be reserved in advance. Visit Disney Dining Online to make your reservations today, or call (407) WDW-DINE.

    If you'd like further assistance in your planning, or dining recommendations, please write me back any time! I'd love to hear from you again Cynthia!

    Wishing you a simply Magical time as you being planning your Walt Disney World vacation!
