    We are undecided booking the dining plan or not, is the meals at Walt Disney World very expensive that you need the dining plan or would it be more cost efficient to not purchase the dining plan?

    Hi Whitney!

    Unfortunately, I can't answer your question.  It really depends on how your party likes to dine and what items each particular person might order off a menu.  However, I do have a recommendation. If you visit the independent website AllEars.Net, you can see the menu, including prices, of all of the Table Service and Quick Service restaurants at Walt Disney World.  The team at All Ears does a great job keeping their information up to date.  Armed with the various menus, you can then do the math and determine if a Disney Dining Plan makes sense for you. 

    Some guests do save a lot of money by being on a Dining Plan, some only save a little, and some actually spend more!  The only way to tell is to the math with your party in mind!

    Good luck with your decision!
