    I am making my first visit with my husband in 2 months! I was looking at the dining plans and was wondering which one was really a great deal? Or is it not worth it? I can't seem to tell if the sit down dining was in all the parks or just the resorts?

    Hello Amy!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with an excellent question! You must be so excited about planning your fist visit! You and your husband are going to make memories that you will treasure forever.

    I absolutely love Disney Dining Plans! Arriving at the Walt Disney World Resort knowing that all our meals are already paid for gives me great peace of mind. We are big fans so we never visit without one, especially if you like buffet and family-style venues and are planning character dining experiences.

    Since this is your first visit I recommend adding a Disney Dining Plan to your vacation package. This plan will give each person in your party per night of your stay two snacks, one Quick-Service meal and one Table-Service meal. You can make reservations for Table-Service meals at participating restaurants located throughout the Walt Disney World Resort including theme parks, Disney Resort hotels, and Disney Springs.

    Some of our favorite Table-Service locations are: Be Our Guest Restaurant, Liberty Tree Tavern, Chef Mickey’s, ‘Ohana, Biergarten Restaurant, Coral Reef Restaurant, Teppan Edo, Tusker House Restaurant, Cape May Cafe, Chefs de France, Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen, and 1900 Park Fare.

    Reservations are highly recommended and can be made up to 180 days in advance online, by using the My Disney Experience mobile app or calling +1 (407) 939-3463. Please note that you do not need a Disney Resort hotel reservation to book your dining experiences.

    Thank you for sending your question our way, Amy! I hope this helps you while planning.

    Best magical wishes,
