    I have two children ages 9 & 6. My husband, the children, and I will be going to Disney World In May. I can't decide to purchase Disney Dining or Quick Service Meal Plan. My kids like to eat often. And can you get a decent meal with quick service?

    Hello Shannon!  Thanks for reaching out to our panel.  Great question and one that I myself have been able to experiment with.  For both plans, you and your family will not be left hungry.  Both plans offer wonderful meals that will never leave you with a half-empty stomach.  I like to tell guests that the difference I see between both plans is time and character experiences.  When you select the dining plan with the table service meal, you will usually spend about one hour in the restaurant.  Some people do not like to give up an hour because they want to enjoy every minute in the park.  My husband and I will select this plan when we want great pictures with some Disney characters.  Walt Disney World offers some wonderful character dining experiences.  This is our way of avoiding standing in line waiting for our turn while in the park.  The kids can get quite frustrated just by waiting in line.  With the character dining, they are too busy eating.  We seem to alternate between the two every time we make a trip to WDW.  Our last visit was in December and we chose to experience character dining.  Since we got some wonderful pictures, our next visit will be on the Quick Service Plan.  Yes, you can find some decent meals with the Quick Service Plan.
