    We are planning on visiting WDW Aug 2013. Debating on whether to purchase regular dining or deluxe dining. What is the cost difference/day? Traveling w/ 5 &7 yr old.

    Hello, Paula!

    Great question!

    The 2013 Disney Dining Plan is a fabulous way to enjoy delicious meals (1 snack, 1 Quick-Service, 1 Table Service) throughout Walt Disney World, for about $56 per night for adult Guests and $17 per night for Guests ages 3-9. The Disney Deluxe Dining Plan expands your options by offering an additional snack per night per Guest, as well as offering Guests 3 meals (Quick-Service and Table-Service included) per night of stay. This plan costs about $100 per night for adult Guests and $27 per night for Guests ages 3-9. Both plans include 1 complimentary resort-refillable mug per Guest, good for the length of your stay.

    Take a look at the menus which are offered throughout WDW restaurants to get a better idea of where you'd like to dine and if you'd like to enjoy signature dining restaurants, which require 2 Table-Service entitlements. You can find these menus by clicking on each park's webpages on Walt Disney World's website, then select "Dining." Click on a restaurant which looks intriguing, then select "Menus" to decide which locations will be must-sees for your family!

    Great reviews can be found on the unofficial site, and there are great articles and pics posted on the unofficial site Check them out for more details!
