    For our upcoming trip we have the Dining Plus Plan. I just learned that you can trade meals for character dining, dinner shows,etc. Is there anywhere on the site that shows the cost of upgrading per adult and child?


    Thanks for coming to the Mom's Panel!

    I am assuming that you are talking about Disney's Deluxe Dining Plan.  (I found it on the Disney website under Plan/Why Stay at Disney World?)

    You are correct that you can use the plan for Character Dining and Dinner Shows--best part: you don't have to pay anything to "upgrade."  It's built into how you use your plan credits!

    The Deluxe Plan allows you three table service meals and 2 snacks per day of your stay.  (Where I come from, that's a lot of food--especially if you're bringing children on the plan.)  Most Character Meals "cost" only one credit.  However, if you'd like to experience the Character Meal at Cinderella's Royal Table or a dinner show like Hoop dee Do Revue, it will cost you two of your table credits (see the pdf pamphlet for the restaurants that require two credits). 

    In my opinion, I don't think I could eat three table service meals a day--or have the hour to 1 1/2 hours out of my schedule to give to the plan works best when you double up your credits and plan ahead!

    Wishing you a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
