    Visiting Disney 1st week of December. Staying 6 nights. Bought the meal plan and 6 day pass. Meal plan is 1 table service, 1 quick and 1 snack. Have a 2 year old with us. How should we spend our time? And will the meal plan be enough?

    Hi Michelle! You will be vacationing at a beautiful time of year.  The resorts and parks will be decked out for the holidays and it's a perfect way to get in the holiday spirit!  

    When my kids were younger, they were early birds.  So we took advantage of that and visited the parks that had Extra Magic Hours in the morning.  We spent more than one day in Magic Kingdom - especially Fantasyland.  We always went at our kids pace to make it more enjoyable for all.  When they became tired, we would take a break or head back to the resort for a nap and/or swim.

    When on the dining plan, we rarely use a meal credit for breakfast.  The exception to this is if we dine at a character breakfast.  Instead we use a snack credit at the Main Street Bakery or my husband would run to the food court to bring Mickey waffles to start our day.  We tend to use our quick service at lunch time and save our table service for dinner as the cost of dinners are more expensive.

    We always found the dining plan to have more than enough food and enjoyed using up our extra snack credits at the end of the vacation to bring treats home.    If you find you need a little something more from time to time, you could always purchase that out of pocket.  Also, be sure to make your reservations soon as the more popular ones will fill up quickly.  

    I hope you have an amazing vacation and please let us know if you have any specific follow-up questions.
