    Hello Stephanie, Thanks for your previous answer. I have been reading about the Dining Plans. Do you think that the Deluxe plan is really worth it? Or would we be okay with the regular dining plan? Thank you very much!

    Hi again Sandra!

    Thanks for sending me another question, I am happy to help in any possible.  I find the differences between the Deluxe Dining Plan and the Disney Dining Plan to be quite substantial, so it really depends on what would suit your dining needs.  In short, if you would like to take the time to enjoy Signature Dining, Table Service and dinner shows, the Deluxe Dining Plan is worth the added cost.  My family loves to experience as many of the Signature Dining Locations and Dinner Shows throughout Walt Disney World and the Deluxe Dining Plan offers enough flexibility for us to dine wherever we would like without having to pay for any additional meals.   My family does enjoy taking the time away from the Theme Parks and enjoy breakfast and dinner everyday at a sit down restaurant.  It gives us the chance to talk about our vacation and relax away from the crowds and excitement.  

    With that being said, if fine dining isn't on the top of your priority list, I would definitely say that the Disney Dining Plan would be the better choice.  I find that the Disney Dining Plan is the best of both worlds in terms of Disney Dining.  You have enough Table Service entitlements to enjoy several sit down meals, while your Quick Serve entitlements will allow you to have a quick meal and get back into the Theme Parks says quickly as possible.  I have found that this plan still offers enough food for my family, we just steer clear from the Signature a Dining options when using this plan and make sure to use our entitlements wisely so they last throughout our entire trip.  

    I hope that helps you to make a decision concerning what Disney Dining Plan is best for you Sandra.  If you have any other questions, please let me know.  I would love to hear from you again.
