    Why should I purchase a meal plan. Is it cheaper? is it more convenient? This is my families first trip to Disney, and its taking myself a while to wrap my mind around what to do, where to eat, and what will be the best thing for our family (ages 9,6)

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Rebecca, you’ve come to the right place!

    May I offer our informative and free Disney Parks Vacation Planning Videos for an overview of what awaits your arrival?

    Then, please take a look at Disney’s Planning for Kids resource containing the tools you’ll need to make the best decisions for your family. You’ll be presented with suitable suggestions for Disney Resort hotels, attractions and experiences, sample Theme Park Itineraries and tips for Best Day Ever memory-making and much more!

    Rebecca, I always build an inclusive, pre-paid Magic Your Way Vacation Package that includes a Disney Resort hotel, Theme Park Tickets and the option to purchase a Disney Dining Plan that fits my touring style and budget. I am a strong advocate of any Disney Dining Plan for the great overall savings, flexibility and choices in dining. Our appetites grow larger during our visits and it’s nice not to have to constantly dip into my pocketbook. Not to mention the benefits and convenience of being a Disney Resort hotel Guest placing you right in the middle of the Disney magic all day long!

    We hope this information sets you off to a good start, Rebecca. Please feel free to consult us for any help again soon for your Disney Vacation planning.

    Best Disney Wishes!
