    Planning on going to WDW next summer. 1 adult, with 4 children (will be 16, 11, 9 and 3). What is the best dining plan option for my family?

    Hi Heather - I generally recommend the standard dining plan, which comes with one snack, one table service meal, and one counter service meal.  For my family, it's usually enough food when supplemented with a few meals paid for out of pocket. 

    If you think you'll be eating two or more table service meals per day, the deluxe dining plan may be a better option.  But that comes with a lot of food, so you should really consider whether or not you'll need all of those credits.

    If you only plan to eat a couple of table service meals, then the quick service plan may be a better option. 

    So, the decision will really come down to your plans. 

    I hope that helps!  Have a great vacation!
