    Hi, My wife and our 8 and 7 year old children are not very big eaters and also quite fussy in taste.Most Fast food and plain foods are fine and small portions will also be ok. Should we opt for the cheapest dining plan or no plan? Thanks

    Hi, Tony!  The least expensive option for a dining plan is the quick service option, which limits you on the plan to only counter service locations.  It is a great tool for helping you budget for meals while you are at Walt Disney World, and if your family is fine with counter service locations (which include fast food type options, but you'll also find more substantial options as well - especially at your resort food court), then this is probably a great option for you.

    Even if you are on the quick service dining plan, you could still opt to pay out of pocket for a nicer, sit down option.  I would advise, however, that you make reservations for any table service meals before you go.

    I think even with the quick service option, you are still going to have plenty of food.  You won't have to worry about anyone being hungry!

    Have a great vacation!
