Ok mousewaiters its question time about the dinning plan. If my family buy's a 10 day pass to wdw with a dinning plan what is it and where do you eat. Eg if you stay at carribeen beach resort where do you eat and how often and is it worth the money please help me understand this question?

I think it really depends on how you want to eat while you are at WDW. The food is way too much for our family. The dining plan is a savings if you'd normally eat like that, we wouldn't. I figured it for our normal stay and we'd pay $450 out of pocket, but the dining plan is $800. Explain: we would never have dessert at every meal (too full). My kids take two bites of their meals and then the rest goes in the trash, so if we pay ourselves we just share our meals with them. I know we don't eat like most, and are in the minority. My recommendation is go to allears.net and there are all the menus and prices, just see how much you'd spend on what you'd eat during your visit and compare it to the dining plan. Again, it is savings if you'd normally eat that much. - DizneyGirl  692.8 #7 5:26AM
I agree with you! We did the dining plan last December and it was way too much food for us. In September I added up how much we spent not on the dining plan and we saved $350 not doing the dining plan (even with a DVC discount). The dining plan is not for everyone, add up what you think you would spend add see if it's right for you! - Andrea84  679.2 #8 5:45AM
Great advice. - jacdanfan  8335.9 #4 8:36PM
.It is worth it. The dinning plan is good for all restaurants in the Parks and hotels. I would recommend the regular dining plan. You get one snack a day per person one quick service and one sit down. We usually do the quick service for lunch and have a nice sit down for diner. You can make reservations for all sit Downs 180 days in advance. Hope this makes sense. - Ariel42  262.9 #26 8:14PM
Ariel is right. Totally worth it. Make sure you have alternate restaurant choices for sit-down meals as some of the more popular restaurants (Cinderella's Royal Table for example) are booked a long time in advance. You can still try go a booked up restaurant because there are cancellations all the time. And the regular plan, believe it or not, is a lot of food. - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #17 8:20PM
Depends on the plan but usually its 1 snack 1 quick serve 1 table service pp per day , so many great options I couldn't go without getting it def worth it u can use most places , some like shows or signature take 2 tble services pp, but you still have quick service , u can always go to the ever helpful cm and ask as the 1st time is a little confusing - tracsant  1096.6 #2 8:21PM
At Caribbean Beach you eat at Old Port Royale...you can't go wrong there for breakfast, lunch or dinner quick service...the portions are huge and so good!!! I would recommended the Deli (Turkey BLT) so stinking good!!!!*+.*+.*+. - CinderellaPrincess85  194.6 #41 8:24PM
I know I'm in the minority but we like quick service plan. 2snacks,2 quick service meals, and resort mug. We still will do one or two character meals and use tables in wonderland card. But we just don't like the wait and time it takes for a table service. You would be surprised the type of food u can get for counter service not just burgers and fries. - Bakerjars  239.6 #30 8:55PM
We did this for the first time last trip. You do have a lot of options! - Ariel42  262.9 #26 9:11PM
Just a FYI for 2012 the quick service plan will change to 2 quick service meals and ONE snack per night per person :-) the refillable mug will still be included as well - UppityEmpress  786.9 #6 9:43PM
Good to know thanks uppity. - Bakerjars  239.6 #30 4:22AM

Thank you but what happens you take your ticket or room pass into a restraunt or snack place and its free or you have to pay. How much can you eat? - puddy77  224.8 #1577 9:36PM
It depends where you eat. You get one point for each night to use at full service buffet restaurants. Each full service meal includes entree and dessert and non alcoholic Bev for lunch or dinner. For breakfast, it's entree and non alcoholic Bev or one full buffet for either period. Some restaurants are signature and require 2 points. The only thing you would pay for is any alcohol and the 18-20 % gratuity which are nit included - UppityEmpress  786.9 #6 9:50PM

There is so much food you will eat on the dining plan it is crazy! You will not believe how much food you will consume. Be prepared to gain weight, I know I did! Lol! - majickingdom79  77.3 #77 11:09PM

We got our dining plan free with our vacation. I upgraded to the reg DDP because we wanted to do character meals once or twice. We have reservations for Crystal Palace and the restaurant in AK for character lunches. I figure we'll use our qs for dinner on those days. =) - eeyorefan107l  280.2 #24 9:31PM
