    Visiting WDW for 15 days, 2 table service meals per day, my question is would any dining plan be a good idea? Or maybe Table in wonderland be a better idea?

    Hi Vicki,

    It sounds like you have a great vacation planned. Fifteen days with two table services meals per day sounds delicious!

    Since you are considering two table service meals per day, you would need to purchase the Deluxe Dining Plan. This is because the Dining Plan would give each person in your party one table-service, one quick-service, and one snack entitlement per night of your stay. This is not enough for the table-service meals that you want. The Deluxe Dining Plan allows for three meals, as well as two snacks, per person per night of your stay. The three meals on the Deluxe Dining Plan can be any combination of table-service and quick-service meals that you like.

    You need to consider a couple of things. First, you mention that you will be eating two table service meals per day - but do you think that you will eat a third each day? Also, will you want two snacks with that each day? If so, the Deluxe Dining Plan may be right for you.

    I have a Tables in Wonderland card, and I love it. This card offers 20% off at most dining locations at Walt Disney World. The card costs $125 for Florida Residents, and $100 for Annual Passholders and Disney Vacation Club members. You must be a member of one of these groups in order to purchase the card. I find this card to be a wonderful deal, but I should say that my family typically eats only one table-service meal per day.

    I think that a good idea for you would be to consider what your family might eat for a day or two. Choose the restaurants you would go to and price out the food if you had Tables in Wonderland. Compare this to the daily cost of the Deluxe Dining Plan. See which plan cost you the least.

    I hope that this helps with your decision, Vicki! Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
