    Another quick group dining ?. Do you suggest everyone be on a Disney Dining Plan or not? Trying to make this the easiest possible for our large family trip coming up soon.

    Hi Kay,

    Thanks for your question!  I've traveled with a large family group a number of times and we used the Disney Dining Plan with great success.  It was so convenient to simply present our Key to the World cards at restaurants to pay for our meals with dining credits, as opposed to paying with cash or credit card. 

    I've found that the Disney Dining Plan is a cost-effective way to feed a family while vacationing at Walt Disney World, particularly when the family includes children under the age of ten.  It is wonderful that Disney offers such a wide range of dining plans from which your family may choose. 

    Keep in mind that everyone staying in a given Disney resort room must either choose to have or decline the Disney Dining Plan.  For instance, if eight guests in your family are staying in a two-bedroom villa at Disney's Beach Club Villas, you must decide as a group whether or not you will use the Disney Dining Plan.  It would not be possible for five people to opt for the plan and the other three to decline the plan.  If, however, the eight of you were staying in two separate rooms, it would be possible for the guests in one room to sign up for the plan while the guests in the other room didn't.

    Let me know if you have any additional questions about the Disney Dining Plan.  I suggest you give it a try!

    Sending you pixie dust for a magical vacation!
