    I love the value resorts! I am thinking that just a standard room would work for us since we will have a wrap and stroller? I also have always done the dinning plan but my man wants the deluxe is it really worth the extra money for it...?

    Hello again, Kyra!

    Thanks for coming back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! In your last question, we talked about using a wrap and a stroller for your little Mouseketeer while at Walt Disney World Resort and about some options for enjoying your vacation on a budget. I'm happy to be able to help you with some additional questions! My family has stayed in both standard-style hotel rooms and larger suites with our small children. We have made both options work for us, even with a stroller, portable crib, and all of the goodies that come with having kids. While it would be wonderful to have the extra space and separate bedroom of a Family Suite at Disney's Art of Animation Resort, a standard room at any of the Value Resorts will also be able to accommodate your family nicely and allow you more room in your budget for extra Mickey bars and souvenEARs!

    Deluxe Dining is a fantastic way to enjoy the many special dining experiences that Walt Disney World Resort has to offer! We always try to enjoy a few nice meals during our vacation, even with our little pirates, but I highly recommend reservations for all table service dining you want to enjoy. Since the Deluxe Dining Plan includes 3 table service or quick service meals per day, the best use of the plan would be to eat at as many table service restaurants as possible. However, with my little ones, it is hard to stick to a schedule that is so regimented. I generally plan to eat a larger breakfast before we start our day and a nice dinner in the evening with snacks and lunch at the park. The standard dining plan works well to accommodate that.

    You know where to find us with other questions! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
