    We usually do the regular dining plan when we go, we pay oop for breakfast and use the QS for lunch and the TS for dinner. But we like sitting down each evening for a break. It allows me to recoup so to speak and gives us the oppourtunity to enjoy each others company. We're not big breakfast people on a whole and just pick up a roll at the foodcourt. Although their full breakfasts are quite large and we have split them as well. I know alot of people don't like the plan but it has always worked for us. it is not as good of a deal as it was before but I'm a little on the frugal side :tongue: ( comes from having 7 kids!) and this allows me to get whatever I want without feeling guilty! If we were paying without the plan I would go for the less expensive items even if I didn't want it!!:yes:

    :wave: I'm a real planner when it comes to $$,(again 7 kids!) I've kept a folder of our expenses for the past 10 years at Disney. And we've saved each year, some more than others but I love the fact that it's paid and out of the way. We usually spend about $20. for the 3 of us for breakfast each day. Even buffets are almost $30. per adult at Disney. But again we all enjoy taking a break, we don't feel as if we're missing something if we stop to refuel! :yes:

    IMO with the deluxe dining plan, I think you would be eating all day!

    We've done the regular dining plan several times and even then it can be too much food.

    Quick service is 2 cs meals and 2 snacks per day. Plus each person gets a refillable mug.

    Are you planning to stay onsite this time?
