    Do you recomend the basic dining plan or the deluxe dining plan? I'm not sure which one to choose. I am traveling with 5 adults and 2 kids ages 4 and 2. I can't determine which is the better deal, or go with no dining package at all.

    If you are planning on attending a Dinner show and Character Meals the Dining Plan is the way to go.  I would however recommend the Deluxe over the Basic.  The Dinner shows require two table meals, and most character meals require only one table meal.  Cinderella's Royal Table does require two table service meals.  The cost of all of those at full price plus other meals the dining plan will save money.  If you are not planning on attending a Dinner Show or Character Meals than you could probably save money by not purchasing the plan.  The Basic plan only allows one table service meal per day, and one counter service.  The Deluxe allows three table service meals, which can be interchanged for counter service meals.  Character meals are so much fun especially when they are young.  I would also recommend the Playhouse Disney's play 'n Dine at Hollywood Studios.  It's located at the Hollywood & Vine Restaurant.  Jojo's Circus and the Little Einsteins from Playhouse Disney as they sing and dance with your little ones.  Hope you have a fabulous trip!
