Dining 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.

Do 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 looking for.

Do you 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 plan.

Once 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 found at the link below...
