Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • I am trying to decide if the dining option is really the best bet. Is it really that much cheaper to purchase your meals this way? If I use the dining option, are there a lot of limitations to where I can eat and what can be ordered off the menu?

  • Hey there Brandy,
    I have been on the dining plan and asked myself the same question when we purchased it for two adults and one child (My mom, my daughter, who is seven and myself).  My daughter is a picky eater and my mom doesn't really eat very large meals, so would we spend more money overall? Not at all if you want an incredible experience then this is definitely it.  Your limitations are few and options are many.  You would probably never book all the expensive restaurants and character dining experiences if you were to pay full price for each and every one that you will be able to eat at during your stay on this plan, so it is a real treat.  I suggest you try it at least once and I bet you will be hooked just like we are now.  You get to eat at the finest that Disney has to offer of their restaurants and see all of the amazing character dining events you would like to go to without paying what it would normally cost and thus make you go broke! (ha-ha)
    I definitely suggest you make your reservations well ahead of time (up to 180 days to be exact) as all the best experiences fill up VERY quickly.  If you plan it well in advance you will have the time of your life.  Don't forget the quick service meals AND snack options that come with it as well as the table service.  You will eat, and eat and eat some more and walk and walk and walk it off in the Parks!
    What could be more memorable?
    Have a great time.
