Is the Disney World Dining Plan Really Worth It?

    We just got back from Disney (thanks Sabrina!)and we found a way to work the dining plan that was a good fit for us. We had the plan where we got a snack, quick service meal and sit-down meal a day. We used the snack for breakfast, so we would have a pastry or apple or bowl of cereal for breakfast. Since you get a refillable travel mug for staying on property, that was our coffee or hot chocolate for breakfast. By the time it was time for lunch we used the counter service meal, which gives you a lot of food. For dinner we had the sit-down table service meals, and that really fills you up. With the amount of food that you get you don’t really need the snack, but if you want to you could always have a soda at the hotel with the travel mug for free, or just get a vending machine snack.

    We went to Disney once and got full-service meals for every meal, and that really was way too much food. Even for our group of two adults and two teenagers, the snack for breakfast was the way to go.

    • Great way to use the snack! We also sometimes split a quick service meal at some of the locations that have very big portions, leaving us extras to use for breakfast on some days. I think I’ll write another post later about clever uses of the dining plan.
