    Hi all I was hoping for some opinions.
    We are a family of 6, DH is probably the biggest eater out of all of us.
    We usually always get the basic dining plan, but as the kids are getting older things are getting more expensive and 2 out of my 4 kids are now considered adults which imho should not be at age 10 but whatever o_O
    so anyway, we downgraded to the QS plan this year, but now i am wondering if that is even worth it, we are already going to be paying out of pocket at some sit downs just because the kids want to try some different places.
    And I am thinking 1 snack credit a day will def. NOT HOLD over any of my kids, so opinions greatly appreciated!!;)
    TIA
    Danielle

    To get more than 1 snack don't you have to have the deluxe dining plan? If they are going to be hungry in between I would take fruit and cereal bars for them to snack on instead of buying snacks in the park.

    Why not have a look at the menus here and see how much each option will cost :)

    Britchick is correct, to have more snacks you need the deluxe dining plan. The trick is to really search for range of snacks as often people think that snack is just fruit and drink. Quite often you can have cakes and much more 'filling' snacks.

    We usually get standard dining and always have couple of snacks left over!

    when i'm on the DDP i never eat the snacks as i'm so full! We usually use the snack credits to bring cookies etc home. We're not big on snacking at home though

    We're not big breakfast eaters. A banana, yoghurt and coffee so don't spend credits on them- tend to get them from the supermarket. We do eat lunch 11.30/12 when in the parks though
