We just got back from 6 nights at Pop Century on the free dining plan.
All I can say is FAb-u-lous !!!
Little prolog:
Me-Jason 34 my 8th trip to WDW. I have 70 Disney restaurants under my belt.
Wife- Patty 25 her 5th trip. NEVER ate at any sit down restaurants EVER, what a shame.
Married 3 years and this is our first Disney trip together. So I had to let her eat around the world.
This is the first time I had used any dining plan. Food was in abundance.
Since the plan was free for us it was well worth it (when is free food not).

Now go grab your favorite snack, loosen your belts, fetch a bib and let’s get your eat on!!!!


C.S. = Counter service
