    staying at Animal Kingdom this coming October, it will be 6 adults and trying to figure out the benefits of the dining plan and if it is worth it. We usually have breakfast and dinner. Breakfast ex: grand Floridian and dinner at Disney Springs. Thanks

    Welcome back, Mark!

    The cooler weather, the fall decorations and the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival makes fall one of my favorite times to visit Walt Disney World Resort. When deciding to purchase a Disney dining plan, you need to consider where you plan to dine and the amount of much food you and the adults in your party plan to eat. If you intend to use your dining credit at Disney Signature dining experiences or dinner shows, then, in my opinion, these really make the most of your investment. Another thing to consider is what you order. Take a look at the menus and decide if you would want to order an appetizer, entree and dessert or just want an appetizer and dessert. The last thing to consider is how long you plan to visit. We have found that our dining style changes depending on the number of days we visit. For example, we might splurge for several Signature Restaurants during a longer vacation while only one during s short weekend stay. Keep in mind that you can also use those snack credits with a dining plan at Global Marketplaces as you taste your way around Epcot!  

    I hope this helps you in your decision. Please let us know if you have additional questions as you plan your fall visit!

    Happy Planning!
