4. Opportunity to Try New Things

Credit: Disney Dining

The first time my family and I used the Dining Plan, we tried so many new restaurants, most of which have become our new favorites and a vacation tradition (cough, Sanaa, cough). Before we were on the Dining Plan, we ate mostly at counter service restaurants, and occasionally Biergarten. Not that there’s anything inherently wrong with those choices. But we were missing out on so much. Since first using the Dining Plan, we’ve tried some fantastic restaurants. Don’t be afraid to try new places and food!

About Robin Swanson

Robin’s Disney journey began with Beauty and the Beast bedsheets, a Jasmine dress up set, and a purring Nala plush. As a child in the 1990s, the renaissance and classic animations alike captivated her imagination. In 2008, Robin visited Walt Disney World for the first time, and the obsession really took hold. Since then, Robin has enjoyed visiting the Happiest Place on Earth many more times. She lives in the Chicago suburbs where she is wrapping up a Masters in writing. When not at Disney World, Robin enjoys researching fairytales, eating ice cream, Netflix binging, reading and, of course, planning the next Walt Disney World vacation!
