    My wife and I will be at Walt Disney for 5 days and would like to know want type of Diner plan to buy? We will be having a sit down dinner for each night and yes I like the character breakfast for each morning can you please help me out on this and thank.

    Hi Nicholas,

    It sounds like your dining habits are similar to mine.  I think it makes the most sense to go with the Deluxe Dining Plan.  The basic plan only allows for one table service meal a day.  With the deluxe plan you have a lot more flexibility.  Many of the nicer restaurants in WDW are considered Signature Dining Restaurants and require two table service credits.  If you have the Deluxe Plan you will get three tables service credits per night of your vacation.  In your scenario, you will start off with 12 and you can use them as you like all five days.  You also get two snack credits per night. 

    Another selling point for me is that the Deluxe Plan includes an appetizer with lunch or dinner. 

    I think you will enjoy the flexibility of the Deluxe Plan.  You can also use your credits at all the counter service restaurants too, if you want to grab a quick lunch.
