“Dear (Step) Moms: How can I tell if the Disney Dining Plan is a good deal for my family?” -Jeri Ruggles, Zanesville OH


If you have a family that likes to eat a lot of food, and you plan on more sit down meals than quick service, then the deluxe plan is probably your best bet. Especially if you like buffets, and really, who doesn’t? Quick Service Plan? Not really worth it.


Just don’t go to Walt Disney World. There are already enough people there without you. 


Dear Jerry:

There’s a simple test I use right off the bat that helps me out every time. Just ask yourself one question: ‘Will I be at Walt Disney World?’ If you are at home, or visiting Universal Studios, or literally anywhere else in the world other than WDW, those Disney Dining credits aren’t going to do you a whole lot of good.


Hi, Jeri. Thanks for asking.

The Disney Dining Plan is tricky to figure out, unless of course you use the patented Uncle Walt’s Insider planning tools. The UWIPT is found right here at Uncle Walt’s Insider. We give you a list of tools and potential scenarios, all based on real-time pricing straight from the parks.

All you need to do is input the number of people in your family, ages, and select what you would normally eat, drink, and how many churros you plan on consuming of per-person, per-day during the length of your stay. You can also use our patented trip planning tools that GUARANTEE you the Fastpasses you want, and those dining reservations you desire.

Hello, Jeri.

As the wise Khajiit Razum-dar once said, “You have, perhaps, something better to do? Look, we are the Queen’s Eyes. We do the tasks that must be done, even if that means getting hit on the head.”

Hmm. I’m not sure where I was going with this. What was the question?

I’m always a fan of Victoria & Albert’s. If I ever get a chance to eat there, I’ll let you know. Their pizza has to be better than Cici’s on 192. Especially that one with the pasta on it. Please note that your dining credits will not be honored on the Death Star. [Ed.: Dining credits are totally honored on the Death Star, unless you are a prisoner.]
