    We went with the Disney Dining Plan for our upcoming trip. What is the best way to get the most bang for our buck?

    Hi Jennifer!

    It sure sounds like you are planning for a delicious Walt Disney World vacation! My family has enjoyed the Disney Dining Plan on more than one occasion now and we've found it to be an excellent way to budget for our trip by prepaying for our food expenses in advance. My teenage son really liked not having to work within a parental preset spending limit when selecting items from the menus. And my daughter loved that desserts were automatically included with her meals.

    A great unofficial resource for maximizing your dining plan meal and snack credits can be found at On the main page, simply type in "2012 Magic Your Way Dining Plan Tips and Tricks" for helpful hints in obtaining the most value out of this package add-on option.

    Thanks so much for visiting us here at the Walt Disney World Moms Panel and feel free to send more questions my way in the days leading up to your trip!
