    Hi Yael, You responded to my question about dining today, thank you. To follow up, I bought the deluxe meal plan. So many are complaining it was to much food, but my dilemma is I don't want to go to Disney with reservations when I am eating out.

    Hi Kristin!

    Great to hear back from you! The Deluxe Dining Plan is a great choice! This plan gives you credit for 3 meals and 2 snacks per day. You will also get a refillable resort mug. The great thing about this plan is that you can choose to dine at a table service restaraunt or a quick service (counter) restaurant. It is hard to say if this is too much food as everyone has different eating habits. The last time I used this dining plan, I ended up with a lot of snack credits available and was able to pick up some really cute Mickey shaped rice krispie treats to take home with me as little gifts. If you choose to dine at a table service restaurant, it is highly recommended that you make your reservations as soon as 180 days before your visit. Some of my favorite table service restaurants are: Le Cellier Steakhouse in Epcot, California Grill at Disney's Contemporary, and Cinderella's Royal Table in Magic Kingdom. If you feel as it maybe too much food, you can also opt to choose the restaurants that use 2 credit for meals.  All of the dinner shows cost 2 dining credits and are really worth seeing. These include: Hoop-Dee-Doo Revue and Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show.  You can further explore the dining option (by cuisine, location or experience) by visiting this page: Disney Dining.

    I hope I was able to answer your question. Again, if I can be of further assistance, please feel free to send me your questions.

    Happy Planning!
