    Dining plan?? Our stay is 5d/4n, but we'd get there really late day 1 and leave early day 5. We have 2 days of park visits planned with a third full day of uncertainties (maybe TL?). Is it worth it since the plan can't be shortened to just those 3 days?

    Hi Samantha,

    I think the Disney Dining Plan is still a great option for you. Here's why:

    With the Plus (basic) Plan you'll get 4 Table Service, 4 Quick Service and 4 Snacks per person. These can be used in any combination. In other words, they don't have to be used 1 per day. On the 2 park days, you can do dinner inside the parks. There are so many fantastic options to choose from. On the Typhoon Lagoon day, you can plan dinner inside one of the resorts for after the water park closes. I would recommend Chef Mickey's in the Contemporary, 'Ohana in the Polynesian or Boma in the Animal Kingdom Lodge. You can then use your 4th Table Service meal for a character breakfast one of the days. I suggest Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom or Donald's Safari Breakfast in the Animal Kingdom. This gives you a great chance to get up close with the characters and the food is fantastic.

    You'll be able to use your Quick Service meals for breakfast on the day you leave and lunch on the other days.

    Hope this helps and please let me know if you need further assistance. I'm a big fan of the Dining Plan as it has saved my family a lot of money through the years.
