    We'll be visiting in 2010, with 2 kids, 7 & 5. We want to do character dining such as Cinderella & Mickey's BBQ but we don't want to do a sit down dinner every night. Which plan is best choice, quick services or sit down meal plan?

    Hi, Lori!  The Basic Disney Dining Package sounds like it would work for you.  For each night of your stay, each guest in your party will receive a table service credit, counter service credit, and a snack credit.   I know you don't want a sit-down meal each day, but experiences such as Cinderella's Royal Table and Mickey's Backyard BBQ are each 2 table service credits, so this would still work out for you.  You may have to purchase a few meals and pay out of pocket, but you will probably still be ahead by using the Dining Plan.

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
