    I am traveling with a 2 and 4 year old both are very picky eaters, we are are on the Quick service plan. I have Tusker house and Disney junior dining reservations. Would it be more cost efficient to upgrade to a table service plan or just pay out of pocket


    Obviously you would have to ask your agent what the pricing differences are, but my guess is that no, you would not want to change. I would stick to your current Quick Service plan, and pay for those two meals out-of-pocket. The truth is that with most of these plans, you are going to pay for some meals either way. 

    Since you are only getting 2 meals covered every day by the Quick Service Plan, you were going to be paying for some meals anyway. Same goes if you go up to the Standard Plan. But with that plan, now you have to pick so many more table service meals to keep from losing money. And with younger, not to mention picky, eaters, that can be hard. My kids were just shy of 3 and 5 when we came for the first time, and even now, with them almost 6 and 8, they still really can't eat more than 1 table service meal a day. 

    I am glad to offer you some suggestions on quick service locations if you need. Just write me back!

    BOTTOM LINE: Stick to your Quick Service Plan, and pay for those two meals out of pocket!

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
