    I thought of another question, what is a good deluxe resort for children specially boys? We were thinking The Wilderness Lodge. My husband is military so we can get a discount right? Is the dining plan worth it? And where is a place for a romantic dinner?

    I think that the Wilderness Lodge is a great choice for boys, Kristy.  It's sure to spark their adventurous spirits!  There are some great dining choices on-site, too, including Whispering Canyon Cafe.  Be sure to get a reservation if you book your stay at Wilderness Lodge.  As for a discount on your room rate, Disney is offering up to forty percent off for active duty military members who book by September 30, 2012.  To check the rates available for your travel dates, call 407-939-7830. 

    The dining plan offers both significant savings and convenience to guests who wish to dine in Disney's restaurants.  Whether or not it would be worth it for your family depends greatly on your dining habits and what/where you would opt to eat were you not on the dining plan.  Generally, if you'd be eating the same meals at the same frequency whether or not you were on the dining plan, then you would see a significant savings by purchasing the plan. 

    For a romantic dinner, Victoria and Albert's would be a great choice.  I would also suggest California Grill, Jiko, or Artist Point (inside the Wilderness Lodge).  Have a great trip!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
