    I had not even considered the dining plan for our upcoming trip in May but after reading so many posts about it I thought I should at least research it. Can anyone provide a link to the most comprehensive info on the dining plan, costs and how it works? Thanks so much!!

    The best place to start is the Dining plan faq at the top of this board. Here's a link to it for you. http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1023429
    The first post has a ton of info and a link to the official disney brochure on the plan. It should answer all yous preliminary questions.
    Hope it helps!!!

    I think once you get past the "exclusions" issue, it is very hard to pass-up. Check it out.

    Plan make sense for most people, there are virtually no exclusions. Reasons not to buy the plan;

    1) You can book a room at a deeply discounted rate such as a FL resident rate, AP rate or CM rate which excludes purchase of the dining plan.

    2) You have a 9 year old that eats adult meals and you don't want to eat in the buffets.

    3) You have a family member, maybe an 11 year old, that eats very little.

    4) You're on a diet or are just a light eater and typically either don't order appetizers and dessert or just share 1 or 2 for the entire family.

    5) You're on a "commando mode" and really don't care to do very many TS meals.

    6) You're doing an Orlando vacation and plan to be eating a lot of your meals offsite. In that case you might consider splitting your trip and staying offsite for part of your trip.

    If you plan to eat at least one CS and one TS meal per day you'll almost certainly at least get "your monies" worth.
