    Hi, we are planning a trip to wdw in may. We are planning to have a breakfast with the characters at hollywood and vine one day and a dinner show or character dinner at our hotel the wilderness lodge another. Does it pay to take the dining plan or not?

    Hi Alyssa! Unfortunately, the answer is not black and white. Some guests save a lot of money by being on a Disney Dining Plan, some only save a little, and some actually spend more. It really depends on how you dine, how often, and what you might order. However, I do have a suggestion. I recommend visiting the independent website There you can view the menu, including prices, for every Table Servic and Quick Service restaurant in Walt Disney World. Then you can do the math and decide if being on a Disney Dining Plan makes sense for you! The team at All Ears does a great job keeping their information current. Good luck with your decision!
