    I never used dining plan before. What are best features (can we get what we want?) and worst features (pitfalls to watch for)

    Hi Dorita!

    I love the Disney Dining Plan! There are so many benefits that the best features are numerous! 
    1. You can order off the regular menu, there isn't a special Disney Dining Plan menu. You will get a drink (non-alcoholic), entree and dessert.
    2. You can enjoy many of the best restaurants that Disney has to offer, even restaurants in Disney Springs, such as Paradiso 37! (Try the crazy corn)
    3. You will receive one table service, one quick service and one snack per guest, per night of your stay
    4. You will receive one rapid refill mug per guest in your party

    The only special consideration to note is that while you can enjoy signature dining experiences, such as Jiko - The Cooking Place, and shows, such as the Hoop Dee Do Revue, they require two Table Service Credits. This isn't a problem, but you should be aware so you can plan your meals accordingly. It will mean that you will want to not have a Table Service one of the nights of your stay, or pay out of pocket for the extra meal. 

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
