    Hi! I love you guys, this panel is super helpful! I am wondering what is the difference between Deluxe Premium and Platinum Dining Plans? Is there anywhere I can see the price difference between them? Which do you recommend?

    Hi, Jackie!

    There are quite a few Dining Plan options to choose from, so it does get a bit confusing!  You will want to click HERE and choose each plan to read in detail what each package includes. 

    Basically, the Deluxe, Premium, and Platinum plans all include 3 meals a day, 2 snacks, and a refillable resort mug.   By jumping to the Premium, you add on access to water sports such as parasailing, bike rentals, unlimited use of the child activity centers, and backstage tours.  Not enough yet?  Well, then go to the Platinum where you enjoy all the listed benefits PLUS a spa treatment, VIP seating for some shows, chartered cruises, and so much more.  There really is too much for me to list, so go to the link above to see details on each plan. 

    My favorite plan is the Base Dining Plan with 1 table service meal, 1 quick service meal, 1 snack, and the mug.  I have 2 young kids who want to go full speed in the parks and do not want to break for tours, too many sit down meals, or sports.   Now, ask me again in 10 years when my husband and I are empty nesters and going alone and I would happily jump to the Premium Plan to enjoy all the fabulous tours and great dining! 

    Your Dining Plan choice really is going to be based on how you want to spend your vacation.  If maximum park time is at the top of your list, go for a lesser plan.  If you want a whole bunch of amazing experiences, then splurge on the upgraded plans.  Good luck deciding and let me know how it goes!
