    Tammy Asked

    Staying for 7 days with my mum & son (8), we're not really big eaters except for dinner. Trying to decide whether or not a DDP would be better than paying oop. Would I spend $1000 oop on food that it would be worth getting?

    Hello, Tammy and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with this yummy question!

    I've often compared buying all my snacks and meals a la carte to the Disney Dining Plan and have discovered that not only is it convenient, being tied to my MagicBand and being pre-paid, but I do save a lot of money. When you factor in all the little incidentals such as treats, water, and beverages throughout the day, those things really do add up. We always somehow seem to be a little thirstier and hungrier during our visits, especially when passing through all the lures of delicious food aromas on our way to our experiences. It is for all these reasons that I highly recommend any of the many Disney Dining Plans suited to all dining styles and preferences. I appreciate having all major vacation details pre-paid for allowing me to worry only about my souvenir purchasing.

    Tammy, you can easily add in one of the many Disney Dining Plans to your Magic Your Way Vacation Package by calling Disney Resort Hotel Reservations at (407) 939-1936 to speak to a helpful Cast Member regarding your vacation plans. The above-mentioned Disney Dining Plans link contains information about all the various dining plans suited to all dining preferences and budgets.
