    If you're on the dining plan with 3 table service meals a day & 2 snacks, would a snack be adequate for lunch if you have a table service breakfast and a table service dinner if dinner requires 2 meal services (e.g. Cinderella's table)?

    Hi Angela!

    The deluxe dining plan (which you are referring to) will leave your pant buttons screaming for mercy!  We had the deluxe plan last summer and did exactly what you suggested in your question.  We ate breakfast (often at a character meal like Cape May Buffet), were completely stuffed, headed to the parks, where we had a snack (or two, as you get two snacks per day) and then had dinner at a signature dining restaurant.    I promise you, no one in my family was ever hungry.  Many of the breakfast restaurants are buffet-style, and, if you are anything like us, it's hard to stop at one Mickey waffle (or two, or five!)  If you are concerned about being hungry, I'd recommend scheduling breakfast a little later than you usually eat and/or dinner a bit earlier. 

    The most common feedback that I've heard regarding the deluxe dining plan is that people are not able to use all of the meal and snack credits that they are allotted.  I think you will be very happy with your choice.

    Have a wonderful vacation!
