    Is the meal plan worth purchasing ?

    Hi Melinda - I personally really like having the dining plan, as it's a great way to have the majority of my dining expenses paid for in advance.  That way, I can budget for my vacation more effectively.

    However, you'll have to look at your own personal situation before determining if the plan is worth purchasing for you.  In addition, since there are now three dining plans available, you'll have to evaluate your plans against what each of the plans offers.

    To do this, I'd recommend putting together a list of the meals that you plan to eat while you are there.  It doesn't have to be exact, you can just include a general idea (i.e., snack for breakfast, quick service for lunch, etc).  Then, add up all of the snacks, quick service, and table service meals and compare against what the dining plans include.  If you find that you will use all of the credits on a specific plan, then it's a great idea to purchase it. 

    I hope that helps!  Have a great vacation!
