    DH likes all sit down meals, but I think we will be ok with regular DDP this year. If we get DDP and then decide it isn't right for us; can we upgrade to Deluxe Plan mid-vacation for the remaining days? Or vice-versa; get DLX and downgrade to regular DDP?

    Unfortunately, your dining plan status must be firm at least three days prior to your arrival at Walt Disney World. After this point you cannot add the plan or upgrade/downgrade your plan level.

    If you are vacillating between the basic and deluxe Disney Dining Plans, my instinct would be to chose the basic plan. You can always supplement the basic plan with additional food paid for a la carte. For example, the Deluxe plan includes appetizers for adults at table service meals. While the basic plan does not include adult appetizers, if you decided you wanted one, you could always get an appetizer and pay for it out of pocket. To me, this makes more sense than getting the deluxe plan and possibly paying for food more food than you might need.

    Good luck with your planning.
