    What are some of the benefits of staying at the concierge level? If we do the concierge level should we still do the dining plan?

    Staying at the concierge level at a Walt Disney World Resort is certainly a treat. You are pampered from the moment you check in. When you book at the concierge level, you will be assigned a cast member that wll assist you in your vacation planning. Your concierge can help you make Advanced Dining Reservations, make priority seatings, obtain ticket for shows and answer vacation questions. You also will stay at the concierge level room on a private wing of the resort with keyed access. You will have access to the concierge lounge, which will have coffee and a continental breakfast in the morning, snacks and hor d'oeuvres and wine before dinner and dessert and cordials every evening. While the conierge lounge dining options won't replace dinner or lunch, they do serve as a nice compliment.

    Staying at the concierge level at Animal Kingdom Resort is particularly nice because you can enjoy the Sunrise Safari, which is only available for concierge level guests.

    The concierge lounge at Polynesian offers a beautiful view of Cinderella Castle and Wishes while Boardwalk has a beautiful view of Illuminations.

    Regarding the Disney Dining Plan, the concierge level food options don't replace meals, especially those special character meals or signature dining experiences, but you certainly won't need the Deluxe Dining Plan if you are staying at the concierge level, as you will have breakfast and snacks available every day. However the DDP could be useful for you if you would like to book special character meals. Also, if you will be at the park for the majority of the day, you won't be near the concierge lounge and may rely more heavily on your DDP for snacks and meals.

    I hope you have a magial visit!
