I have been trying to decide about a dining plan. Last time we did the one quick service and one sit down meal. I enjoyed the dining experience but did not like working around my reservations. This time I was thinking about doing the two quick service. Has anyone looked at the prices? Is it a better deal to get the plan? I did not look at prices last time because we just used our key.
Welcome to MW. Well the dining plan works out to Be more reasonable for us because we don't drive and we don't want to leave the park in search of food. Yes the prices are crazy. We get the standard dining plan because my children are easy about breakfast. The snacks are expensive so it works out great that those are include. You have to evaluate how much the people in your party eat and if they will still be wanting more to eat after you do the quick services. Good luck. - 5disneylovers  771.1 #5 8:24PM
We usually get the ddp ,but last month we didn't and it worked out cheaper , we always make ressies for ts , it can be a pain to have to go especially if you feel like you are having a good time but so many of the restaurants are an experience in itself and I tend to get tired of burgers , pizza ect. And it's nice to take a break at a nice place to eat and try something I never did , but either way you have to just add it all up , for 2 for 5 days it would have cost is 500 and change and I just didn't want to spend that , I added what I thought each meal at every place we were going to and it was less and we didn't lose snacks or qs like we usually do , good luck and happy planning:) - tracsant  910.9 #2 8:35PM
We have done it both ways. If you are going with the qs you can break about even or a little less if you are spending out of pocket. If you are doing sit down you do save at least 20% on the dinning plan. I don't know when your going but book early if you are doing the DP. - mmddgp  372.9 #18 10:03PM
When we did our trip last april we got the 1 sitdown, 1 qs, and1 snack and for the two of us it cost $80-$100 more than the 2qs meal but the amount we saved was alot more than we would have for the qs mealplus it also help to let us relax for a few without having to worry about finding a place to sit and eat some spots can be very busy if you can try and eat during the non usual time most people eat....hope that helps. keep on asking if you need other help - firestorm64rt  36.4 #108 10:41PM
Thanks for all your help. - dismom  7.7 #272 11:12AM
We have gone with one and without one. I prefer the Dining Plan definitely!! - mrsincredible  766.9 #6 11:17AM
