    Hi Moms Panel, arriving 4/7 lm trying to decide if dining plan will save money. how can i figure out the actual cost of meals such as crystal palace, chef mickeys, and other buffets for adults, some show $35.99-$59.99 for meal. heard prices vary?Help

    Hello, Jill!  Welcome to the Moms Panel!

    I am a HUGE fan of the Disney Dining Plan.  I have been able to do some research on my own due to my personal experiences with the DDP.  I have had many trips with and without the DDP and I always seem to save more using one of the plans WDW offers..  Needless to say, I never visit Walt Disney World without my DDP in place.  The savings are just that big for my family of 5.  

    There are different DDP to choose from.  Generally, you will see about a 20% savings for the Quick Service Plan, 30% savings on the Standard Dining Plan and a 40% savings on the Deluxe Dining Plan.  However, prices are subject to change daily and these percentages may as well.  I highly recommend speaking to one of our savvy Dining Cast Members who will be more than happy to break down the pricing for you for certain restaurants.  They may also be able to offer some great advice on which DDP would work for your family. They have the most up-to-date pricing and savings tips that you will find most helpful.  You can reach them at (407)WDW-DINE.  They will more than happy to spend some time with you so that you are feeling good about your food budget.

    ~Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON"!~
