    We are planning on 8 nights with 5 days spent at Disney theme parks. We are considering getting the deluxe dining plan. On the days we are at theme parks we will reserve restaurants at that park, but what about the days we don't go to theme parks?

    Dear Stefanie,
    It is our pleasure to receive your question and be able to participate in the planning process of your trip! Thank you for reaching out!
    Adding the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan will give you lots of opportunities to try the different character dining experiences, signature dining and so much more! I'm so glad to hear this is the dining plan option you will be going for!
    The days you won't have Park tickets, you can use your credits in resort dining venues, and let me tell you, there are SO MANY great options, you will want to extend your stay!
    Amongst my favorite character dining options are
    * Chef Mickey's in Disney's Contemporary Resort
    *1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian
    *'Ohana in Disney's Polynesian Village Resort
    *Cape May Café in Disney's Beach Club Resort
    *Trattoria al Forno in Disney's BoardWalk
    * Storybook Dining at Artist Point with Snow White in Disney's Wilderness Lodge
    And for signature dining options, you could choose from my top list below
    *California Grill in Disney's Contemporary Resort
    *Cítricos in Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
    *Jiko - The Cooking Place in Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge
    *Narcoossee's in Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
    *Yachtman Steakhouse in Disney's Yacht Club Resort
    *Flying Fish in Disney's BoardWalk 
    Just to number a few; as you can see, there are plenty of options outside of theme parks. 

    Stefanie, I am so excited for you and your family! It looks like you will have a truly amazing (and yummy) time at the Walt Disney World Resort!
    Happy Disney Dining,

Meet the Panelist: Desiree, Peru

Hi! I'm Desiree from Lima, Peru. My family will never ever tire of visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth, even if means traveling almost 3,000 miles to do so! My husband and I love to watch the fireworks with our kids, but the best magic happens when the grandparents come along and we all feel the same age in front of Cinderella Castle! I love giving tips about different types of resorts and traveling with multigenerational groups.
