    We were upgraded at Yacht Club :cool1: in September to club level but we already had deluxe dining and lots of restaurant reservations. We will be returning in 2013, thinking of booking club level and having basic dining plan. Any advice. Thanks

    I think you can do both as long as you eat at a lot of signature (2 credit) restaurants. You will probably eat breakfast in the concierge lounge, that's what we always do, so you could use one credit for a lunch sit-down, and 2 for a signature dinner sit-down. Personally I'm not a fan of the dining plan because our kids are considered adults but don't eat enough to justify the cost. We tend to eat quick service lunches because we are in the parks and too busy to sit-down. But if you like sit-down meals a couple of times a day then deluxe dining would be a good fit for you. :)

    Either way sounds great!

    I've never done CL or had the dining plan. But my understanding of the CL is you have food set out at breakfast, then sort of a tea time, then something at dinner time, then at bedtime. I feel like if I threw in a counter service lunch, I could call it a day. I think it'd be overkill to get both, cause I'd be stressing about trying to get my money's worth.

    When we stay cl, we either don't book a dining plan or we get the regular. The problem is we always have counter service credits left and we're scrambling to buy treats in place of the cs. If you only book a couple of signature restaurants for your stay, you'll be fine with the regular plan. You can have breakfast and dinner at the resort club level lounge.
