Hi, I am starting to plan for a DW trip in October and have a couple questions about the meal plan. We will probably be coming from a Sunday to Saturday...so those two days wouldn't be full days (i.e. most likely 1 meal). Mon-Fri would be full days; however, we may spend one day outside of DW (too much Disney for my husband...ha ha). So if we got the meal plan, we would only want 4 days worth and pay the rest out of pocket. 1) In the package calculation, is it assuming a full meal plan for all 7 days? 2) Is the meal plan really worth it? It seems like a lot more than we would normally eat. E.g. I could see us having 1 sit down dinner each night with meal, dessert, drinks (well, I just drink water). Our kids have a snack, but breakfast and lunch are usually quite simple...so no dessert or anything else. Thoughts?

(The number of nights, in your case 7 nights.) ETA: You could consider a split stay if you only want a meal plan for 4 nights. __________________ Summer Feb 2014 - Pop Century May 2012 - All Star Sports Jun 2009 - Caribbean Beach Resort May 2001 - offsite May 1998 - All Star Music

There are plenty of options where you can use the credits without going into parks if that's your concern. Depending on the age breakdown of your kids and # of character meals, it may or may not be worth it so best to look through the menus to figure it out. Enjoy either way! __________________ DCL: Dream 12/18-12/22/11 Magic Western 9/5-9/12/09 Magic Eastern Sept 29 - Oct 6, 2007 TR:http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1605878 WDW: SSR: Dec 2014 - NYE (upcoming) OKW: Aug 2014 (upcoming) BLT/AKV Jambo: Aug 2013 BWK: Dec 2011 BC: Sep 2010 BLT/AKV Kidani: Nov 2009 SSR: May 2008
