    Hi Moms, We are planning a trip in November and its the first time we are using the Disney Dining Plan. Any recommendations for how to get the most bang for our buck? Also, what princess meal do we go to other than the castle, we've been there? THANK

    Hi Beth!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.

    The other big princess meal is Princess Storybook Dining inside the Norway Pavilion in Epcot.  I actually prefer it over Cinderella's Royal Table because I don't feel as rushed there and I like the food better.  Needless to say, however, both are very popular.  If you are just interested in Cinderella and her family, then another good Disney Character Dining Experience is dinner at 1900 Park Fare in the Grand Floridian.  It is actually one of my favorite dining experiences, but you are limited to Cinderella and not several Disney Princesses.

    To get the most value out of a Disney Dining Plan, you should visit a more expensive restaurant and order one of the most expensive items on it.  Of course, that's not a good plan if you don't think you would actually enjoy eating the item!  To give you an idea of prices, I recommend visiting the independent website AllEars.Net.  At All Ears, you can find the menu, including prices, for every Quick Service and Table Service restaurant within Walt Disney World.

    You should also consider buying the Disney Food Blog's e-book on Disney Dining.  You can find it at the independent website Disney Food Blog, which has a lot of information on dining at Disney, including how to get the most value out of a Disney Dining Plan.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
