    You had responded to a question stating that you had more money saving tips on food, could you please go into more detail about the meal packages. We are a family of 4 with 2 adults and 2 childern ages 4 and 9.


    I think the Dining Plans are great, and are almost always a money saver. The plans work as follows;

    A Disney Resort guest can prepay for a dining plan. For that you get a certain amount of quick service meals, table service meals, and snacks. The amount of each varies for the three main plans, which I outline below. You can use these dining 'credits' at select restaurants throughout Walt Disney World, but you will find that most all restaurants on property participate!

    You can find printable brochures of these plans at the website's Resort Benefits page, and they can answer a lot of questions that I may not get to here. Also, you can send me any specific follow-up questions as well. With each plan you get the following meals/snacks for every night's stay in the resort;

    • Standard Dining Plan: 1 Quick service meal, 1 Table service meal, 1 snack
    • Quick Service Dining Plan: 2 Quick service meals, 2 snacks
    • Deluxe Dining Plan: 3 Table service or Quick service meals, 2 snacks
    Please let me know of any follow-up questions that you may have!

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
