    is the meal plan really worth it? we have 2 ,5yo boys

    Hi, Catalina! Meals are totally worth it. The meal plan is totally optional. I find the meal plan to be a good value under a couple conditions:
    • You're able to make advanced dining reservations at your must-do restaurants
    • You usually order dessert at table service and counter service restaurants anyway
    • You have the ability to pay for the meal plan in advance (as part of your vacation package)
    I couldn't tell from the way your question was phrased if you had two 5 year old boys or if you had boys who were ages 2 and 5. Either way, if you went with the meal plan, both boys would get kids pricing on the meal plan.

    If you do have a 2 year old, chances are you wouldn't necessarily need the meal plan for him. He could probably get by just by just fine eating off of your plates and supplement as needed a la carte. In this instance, the meal plan wouldn't make as much sense for you to get.
