Vote of the week: The Disney Dining Plan

So let's talk today about the Disney Dining Plan. Have you used it? Thought about it? What do you think?

Personally, I've never used it. I love many of Disney's sit-down restaurants, so a Quick-Serve Dining Plan wouldn't be a good fit for me. But when I look at the amount of food included on a Deluxe or up plan - an appetizer, entree and dessert for three meals a day? That's just too much for me. My family always splits entrees when we visit theme parks, anyway. Throw in the fact that the only time I can visit WDW with my school-age children is during one of the high seasons, such as summer, when the Dining Plan isn't a freebie, and I've just decided to do without.
Is that the right call? I don't know. You tell me. I know that different visitors have different circumstances and I'm sure we'll hear from some readers who are fans of the Dining Plan, as well as others who've found other ways to get the most for their food dollars while visiting the parks.
I'd love to hear your thoughts, in the comments. Thanks again for reading Theme Park Insider, and stay tuned for my coverage from the Disney D23 Expo later today and through the weekend.
