    While planning our 2nd trip to WDW in the beginning of April 2013, we are debating between Wilderness Lodge with Magic your way, or Dolphin~But they don't offer a meal plan. Suggestions between meal plan vs paying out of pocket??

    Hi Michelle! Thanks for the great question. I'm a big fan of the Disney Dining Plan, especially if you are going to throw in some character meals. My daughter is now 12, and it is getting more and more expensive to pay out of pocket to feed her! The Dolphin is located in my favourite spot, right across from the Boardwalk, and a short walk or boat ride to both the Hollywood Studios and Epcot. Bear in mind that, although you do enjoy free transportation to Disney parks from the Dolphin, you are not eligible to take Disney's Magical Express to and from Orlando airport. In addition, You will need to pay a resort fee and for parking, so be sure to add that into your calculations.

    Hope this helps with your decision Michelle! Write back with any other questions!
