View Full Version : Anyone want to share their deluxe dining plans?

I planning a trip next year and I am definetely doing deluxe dining! We will be there 8 nights, 9 days which gives us 24 meal credits each. I'm also trying to squeeze in some extras (la nouba, wonderland tea party, and parasailing). My plans look very aggressive and I haven't finalized anything yet, but I need ideas and would like to see how everyone fits in all the meals. Anyone want to share their plans/itinerary?

We have done DxDP twice. Once for a short trip and once for a longer trip.

What we plan is breakfast (usually a character meal) at 7am or so in order to get to the park when it opens. Then lunch between 12:00 and 1pm. I don't eat alot at breakfast so I'm am hungry by then. Then, dinner between 6pm and 7pm. We don't eat much snacks in between so we end of buying alot of stuff with snack credits on our last day.

Of course, we book all TS for the meals and no QS. But, we also don't do the 2TS as some do with the DxDP.

Hope that helps!

Gladly :).

For 23 Sept - 26 Sept, I will (most likely) be joined by my mom who lives about an hour and a half away. The rest of the time will be just me.

This will be our 2nd trip on the DxDDP and we love it! Next trip my son will be considered an adult on the ddp, so this may be the last time we do it. Here are our plans.....We have set up our days so we mostly only have 2 sit down meals. The meals we don't have adrs for we will be hitting a counter service. Even using snacks for breakfast a couple of times. We are going for 14 nights so we have 126 dining credits and 84 snack credits to work w/.

We're not going until next June, but - believe it or not - I've spent the last two or three weeks tweaking what I'd like to have. The times are just estimates because ya never know what you'll get when you make your reservations.

Our intent is to stay at BCV.

Day One: Arrival Day
(Arriving around Noon)
- Lunch at Beaches & Cream around 1-3ish
- 6:00ish - Crystal Palace

Day Two: Magic Kingdom Day
- 10:30ish - Breakfast at Chef Mickey's (assuming this is an EMH day, we'll be at the park for 8:00 rope drop and then scoot over to the Contemporary via monorail for breakfast, then back to the park
- Dinner will be early, so lunch will be a snack in the park
- 4:30ish - Dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table

Day Three: Epcot Day
- 8:00 - Breakfast at Cape May Cafe
- 1:00 - Lunch at Biergarten
- 6:00 - Dinner at Les Chefs de France

Day Four: Animal Kingdom Day
Arriving at AK at rope drop around 9:00 a.m.
- 10:00 - Breakfast at Tusker House with Donald
- Early Dinner, so snacks for lunch
- 5:00 - Dinner at Boma

Day Five: REST DAY - Play at the Resort
- Plan to sleep in, so light snack for breakfast.
- 11:30 - Lunch at Beaches & Cream at Resort

(We'll probably go to MK sometime after dinner)

- 9:30 - Breakfast - Crystal Palace
- 2:00 - Lunch - Counter Service (Maybe Hurricane Hannah's at Resort)
- 7:30 - Dinner - California Grill

Day Ten - Split Day between MK and Epcot

Day Eleven - Leaving WDW

That leaves me with one remaining TS, and I've been toying with the idea of doing the HDDR in place of the dinner at Crystal Palace, in which case, we'd do CRT for dinner the first night and HDDR for dinner on the second night. This scenario would use all of our meal credits.

We're doing the deluxe plan for 9 nights this trip. Our last trip we only had it for 3 nights and thought it was a lot of food, but I had tried to squeeze in the most possible and did 3 meals each day and I also hadn't spaced them out much.

I think I've learned from that and we will be attempting it again this year.
