    Traveling to Disney Feb 2017 staying 6 nights. Which dining plan would your recommend. I am afraid the Regular plan will not be enough but the Deluxe will be to much. We are looking at doing one character dining that requires 2 table services.

    Hi Denishia!

    I absolutely love the Disney Dining Plan! I find that it saves time, money and stress! Choosing the right plan for you depends upon your needs and  how much time you plan to spend dining in the parks and resorts.

    We find that the regular Disney Dining Plan offers plenty of food and flexibility for having some character dining experiences and signature dining experiences that require two Table Service Credits from the plan. The regular plan offers one Quick Service, one Table Service and one Snack per person, per night of your stay. 

    You can spread those credits out throughout your vacation, which is helpful because you may find that some days you use more credits and other days you don't use many. For example, one day you may have breakfast at Cinderella's Royal Table, which is two Table Service credits. If you have breakfast at 10:00 a.m. you probably won't be hungry again until about 2:00 p.m. You may decide that since its close to dinner, you can get by with a hearty snack, such as a cream cheese filled pretzel or hummus and pretzels. Then for dinner you can eat at Quick Service meal, such as Pecos Bills. It all balances out over the course of the vacation.

    However, if you prefer to have three square meals a day, with snacks, then the Deluxe Dining Plan may work better for you. 

    You can also choose to pay for some meals out of pocket if you run out of credits. 

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
