    Is there a real savings value to getting the meal plan (say the Deluxe) for a family of four staying at the park for 8 nights? Thanks.

    Hi Catherine - the Disney Dining Plan can absolutely offer some great value to families, but it really depends upon your plans for meals.

    If you think you'll be using at least two table service credits per day, then the deluxe plan is generally worth it.  But, that is a lot of food - so you should really decide if you'll take advantage of it.

    Otherwise, I generally think the standard meal plan is worth it for families who are using at least one table service credit per day. 

    Either way, I recommend that you make reservations in advance if at all possible.  The most popular restaurants do book up well in advance.

    I hope that helps!  Have a great vacation!
