    would you suggest staying for 7 nights with the deluxe meal plan or 9 nights on the lower dining plan

    Hi Jennifer!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.  In general, I would recommend staying longer as opposed to being on a higher priced Disney Dining Plan.  However, I think 7 nights is a good amount of time, especially if you have never been to Walt Disney World before.  If you have a fixed budget and your variables are length of stay, resort type, and Dining Plan type, then I first recommend going for 7 nights; then I would recommend adjusting your dining and/or hotel type to fit your budget.  So for example, if you are planning on staying in a Disney Moderate Resort, I would bump it up to a Disney Deluxe Resort before increasing the number of nights.

    There's never an easy answer on where to stay, how long to stay, or what kind of Disney Dining Plan to be on.  Good luck with your decision, and please write back if you have any more questions!
