    Hi, I am planning on visiting from July 23, thru July 28 and would like to know about how much will I spend on meals if I do not choose the dining plan. We are a family of 4. Thanks.

    Hi Sabrina!

    My family is a family of 4 with two boys, ages 12 and 7.  We typically dine at 1 to 2 Table Service restaurants each day; we always do at least one and we never do more than two.  I basically budget $200 for the family each day for food, snacks, and drinks (water, soda, etc).  That works pretty well as long as we stay out of the most expensive Table Service restaurants, such as Cinderella's Royal Table or Disney Signature Restaurants.

    By the way, you can easily calculate exactly how much you need to budget by visiting the independent website AllEars.Net.  There you can find the menu, including prices, for all of the Table Service and Quick Service restaurants at Walt Disney World.  Then you can add up what you would spend in a typical day based on how each member of your party normally dines (e.g. what he or she might order).  The team at All Ears does a great job keeping all of their information current.

    I hope this helps!  Write back with more questions!
