    I am trying to decide which dining plan would be better (plus dining or deluxe dining). I have 2 adults,13 yr old, 6 yr old and a 3 yr old. We do plan on 2 character dinings. I don't want the vacation to revolve around food, but I do want "enough&q

    Hi Stephanie,

    My family gets the Plus Dining on almost every trip. We always enjoy at least 3 character meals as well. I can assure you, we have never felt like we didn't have enough food or wished that we had purchased the Deluxe Plan instead. The serving sizes are quite large at Disney, and if you plan on a few buffets you'll definitely be getting your moneys worth.

    I do recommend that you plan a few brunch buffets.The Crystal Palace is a "must-do" for our family on every trip. We eat a late morning breakfast (brunch) and aren't hungry again until dinner time. This makes great use of our credits. You'll also want to grab a muffin in the morning with your snack credit or bring a box of granola bars for a quick breakfast on the go.

    Hope this helps and have a wonderful vacation,
