Tips to Enhance
Your Disney Experience
When planning your
trip to Disney World, one of the first questions you may have
is whether or not to add the dining
plan onto your package. There are a few things you should
consider before making your final decision.
you typically enjoy eating at new restaurants?
If you enjoy trying
new places and eating new foods, then the dining
plan with table service options might be for you. One
of the great things about Disney World is that there are so
many different options for table service dining. One can choose
to eat at a Polynesian restaurant (Ohana's) and a drive in
movie restaurant (Sci Fi Dine In) on the same night. This
range of choices is one of the great things Disney has to
offer and can give your trip that added flair you might be
have picky or light eaters in your group?
If you have small
children that don't care to eat much food or if you have an
adult that is a picky eater, the dining
plan may not be economical for you. There is quite a bit
of food given to you during your meals, especially with a
table service option. Many restaurants will also have new
food selections that might not be appetizing to all members
of your party. It is very important to consider those in your
travel group before selecting a meal plan. It is important
to note, however, that there are children;s menus at all restaurants
that include those typical children's foods such as chicken
nuggets and macaroni and cheese.
Do you have
time to dedicate to large meals?
Many families enjoy
a break from the hustle and bustle of the theme parks for
a quiet break in a restaurant. Other families tend to lead
a more quick paced trip that only allows time for grabbing
a quick bite at a fast food shop. Many table service meals
could last up to an hour and half or more by the time you
wait in line and eat. Many counter service restaurants could
take up to 30 minutes of just standing in line to order food.
It's important to consider this time in your day and when
you are deciding whether or not to do a dining
you determine if the dining
plan is right for you, then you need to determine which
plan works. Disney's plans will change in 2009 to include
3 different plans: Quick Service Dining, Basic Dining and
Deluxe Dining. More information on the dining plans can be
