    hello :o) is the dinning plan cover breakfast at Cheff Mickey and meal at The Garden Grill Restaurant at Epcot? we still don't know if we should buy thia dinning plan when celebrating 5 th b-day for my son.. thank you.

    Hi Violet,

    Yes Chef Mickey's and the Garden Grill are both on the Disney Dining Plan. They would each use one Table Service entitlement per person.

    We are big fans of the Disney Dining Plan, and we purchase it on each trip. Your 5 year old would be $11.99 per day for the Basic Plan. This will give him one Table Service, one Quick Service and one Snack. You won't be able to feed him for less than that without the Plan. Even adults (currently $41.99 during regular season), still save with the Dining Plan when they eat one Table Service meal per day. For example, dinner at Chef Mickey's is currently listed at $35.99 plus tax. You can plan on one Quick Service meal averaging approximately $10 per person. Given this scenario, you've already saved and haven't even had your snack yet. To get the most for your money with the Dining Plan, you should plan on most of your Table Service meals being dinner (since those cost more than breakfast).

    Hope this helps and have a Magical vacation. Happy Birthday to your little boy!
