    Hi there and welcome to Disney Secrets, I personally wouldn't buy the dining plan as i don't think it's that great a deal.

    If you look here you'll see our latest menus with prices that can help you work out if it's worth it for you. The dining plan covers tax but not gratuity. Hope that helps. Please feel free to to ask as many questions as you like. :thumbsup:

    My suggestion would be, if you have an annual pass, which I assume you might since you go so often, is to invest in the Tables In Wonderland Card.

    Welcome!

    I've never used the dining plan but I've heard comments about it being an awful lot of food and you have to plan your day around restaurant times and stuff. But then other people swear by it.

    I've not helped have I? :lol:

    I like having the Disney Dining Plan for my family. I think it is possible to save money by not using it, but I like the convenience. We use the Quick Service Meal for lunch each day, and use the Table Service Meal for dinner. We pay for breakfast out of pocket. We generally use our Table Service Meal for character meals or themed restaurants. What we don't like about the Quick Service Meal is it comes with dessert. We do not need or want dessert at lunch. Sometimes the QS restaurant will allow you to get a bottle of water instead of dessert, but not always. I believe you might be able to save some money by paying out of pocket, especially if you are a light eater. The only way to know for sure is to look at the menus for the restaurants you think you will eat at, and price your meals. Then compare the cost to the cost of the DDP. We like the convenience of having most of our meals already paid for - except gratuity and "adult beverages" before our vacation.
