2. It is super convenient to have the dining plan already paid for. You don’t have to worry about giving your teens cash or a card. You can set them lose to enjoy the parks. Plus often times you can save even more on your vacation package by doing the dining plan, hotel stay, and park tickets all in one.
3. You don’t have to pay for all members of you party. If you have kids that don’t eat much you could share with them. For example, my grandma, and daughter eat like birds. They are going to share a dining plan. If they for some reason eat more than normal we can always buy more food.
4. Flexibility is built in. You don’t have to get the dining plan for the whole stay. You can pay for it per day or few days at time.
5. There is so many options with both plans. Almost every restaurant or snack cart in City Walk and the parks is included.
