    Is it worth getting a dining plan. The quick meal?

    Hi Charlene!

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel! This is a question my friends ask me frequently! My answer always is that it depends on the person and/or family's eating habits. When I plan our trips, I contact Guest Services and ask them to price it out for me then I take that total cost per day and compare it to our plans. If we are planning on doing some table service reservations, I compare the costs of the meal (dining plan vs out of pocket) and then make a decision. My family and I have gotten the dining plan in the past and we have ended up with credits at the end of our trip because it was too much food for us.  As for the Quick Service Plan, I would recommend that you price it and check out the places you may want to eat and the menus (these can be found on this link: Disney Dining) and see if its worth it for your family. 

    Did you know?: Currently, there is a special offer for free dining. For more information, please be sure to check this offer and other ones like it by visiting this page: Special Offers and Deals
