    We are going to WDW for 7 days 6 nights. I did not purchase the dining plan. Its only my 7 yr old sis and me. Can you tell me the average price for a meal?

    The prices for meals really range all over the place, from counter service kids meals that are less than $5 to high-end cuisine that can run over $100 per person with wine. So that doesn't really give you a solid answer, does it?

    Here are some pointers to help you set that food budget;

    1. Consider adding a dining plan. There are a few to meet different budgets and dining preferences, and each can save you money, if they are right for you. You can add the dining plan to your trip before you arrive, but you can't add it when you get here.

    2. Check out the prices on the menus at the Walt Disney World website. For many of the table service restaurants they have started posting menus. Also consider visiting, where they post recent menus and pricing as well.

    3. I like to estimate as much as $50 per day per adult, and $30 per day per child. You can clearly come in well under these estimates, but they are good budget starting points.

    I am glad to answer any follow-up questions. Just ask me directly from my bio page!

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
