    Trying to decide if we should do one of the meal plans. In the past we have done the one with a quick service & sit down meal each day but sometimes felt that we were scheduling everything around our meals. Thoughts?

    Hi Kimberly! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I love to use the Disney Dining Plans, but I know it can feel as if you are removing any spontaneity from your day if you have to work around a dining reservation. I still think it's worth every penny and offers great value and flexibility, with reservations only needed for the Table-Service meals. During the day you can use your Quick-Service entitlements, and your Snacks, wherever you like, no forward planning required. I usually enjoy dinner reservations that require two Table-Service credits, which means that dinner is planned for one day, freeing up our time on the following day. My favourite Table-Service meals that require two credits each are Narcoossee's at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, and California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort - both are within easy reach of Magic Kingdom Park. I also love Be Our Guest Restaurant which is located in Fantasyland in Magic Kingdom Park, so is easily accessible during or after a magical day there. If you did not want to be tied to any dinner reservations, you could purchase the Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan which will give you two Quick-Service Meals, two Snacks and a refillable drink mug, per day, so you would have total flexibility when deciding where you want to eat. Your dining credits can be used in any way you choose - so maybe using more credits on one day, and less on another - which might help with your planning. Dining reservations for Table-Service meals are recommended, up to 180 days in advance, online or by using your My Disney Experience mobile app.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help. ~ Sue
