    we are planning our first trip in june 2012. i have a 8 yr and 5 yr old. im thinking of purchasing the dining that has three meals per person. would it be better to do this or just purchase the 2 quick meal package?

    Hi Veronica! I'm a huge fan of the Disney Dining Plan. I love it for both the convenience and the value. We usually get the standard dining plan, which includes one quick service meal, one full service meal and one snack per person per day. It also includes a refillable mug for everyone for use at your resort during your stay. We find this is plenty of food, and usually even treat ourselves to a signature meal, which requires two credits. I'll often pay out of pocket for one meal, but the plan still provides great value.

    The Deluxe Dining Plan offers three meals and two snacks per person per day, as well as the refillable mug. This is a great deal if you plan on enjoying several signature (two credit) dining experiences, including dinner shows. For us this is a lot of food, but is great value if you use it to the fullest.

    The Quick Service Dining Plan provides two quick service meals, one snack and one mug per person per night. This plan is great for those who prefer not to make dining reservations. There are so many great quick service spots to choose from, so you won't go hungry!

    For us, the standard plan meets our needs. I recommend calling a Disney reservationist at (407) 939-7675 and get a price for each plan. Then, check out the dining options at Walt Disney World to see which type of restaurants you'll likely be visiting.

    Hope this helps Veronica! Write back with any other questions!
