    Moms Panel ROCKs!! This is my daily reading site. The dining plan: 1QS, 1 Table and 1 snack enough food per day or should I book the Dexlue for 3 meals, 2 snacks and refillable resort mug per day. Will also be feeding a 2 year old off of my dining plan.

    Hey, thanks for the shout-out! What rocks even more is all the guests that we get to help with their vacations to WDW!!

    I would stick with the standard dining plan that allows 1 quick service credit, 1 table service credit and 1 snack credit per person per day.

    With a 2 year old (I remember those days!!), I can't imagine that you would want to spend at least 3 hours per day sitting in restaurants.

    For breakfast either pay out of pocket or use your snack credit. If you get to the parks by opening time, you'll only have a couple of hours before you can head to lunch (11-11:30 am) for your quick service meal. There are lots of yummy counter-service options in the resorts and theme parks. Also, if you find yourself extra hungry and don't want to share your meal with your youngster, kid meals are inexpensive and can be purchased out of pocket without bursting your budget. Buffets are great deals because your two-year old can graze at the buffet for free!

    Our family has never had more than one table service meal per day at Walt Disney World. While the restaurants are well-themed and many of them have delectable menus, there's so much fun to be had with the attractions, shows, parades, fireworks, hotel pool, etc. that we don't want to spend all of our time eating.

    My two year old was very busy. Just getting him to sit for one table service meal per day was sometimes a struggle. I think your family will be very happy with the standard Disney Dining Plan!
