Thrifty Thursday: Making the Most Out of the Disney Dining Plan!

I do love the Disney Dining plan! We usually opt for the Magic your Way Plus Dining where you get one snack, one counter meal, and one sit down dinner for each person, every night you stay at the resort. We have found a way to get three full meals out of this meal plan, which is great because the way this plan is set up, it doesn’t account for 3 square meals. Continue reading

Thrifty Thursday: Grazing Your Way Around Epcot’s World Showcase

When traveling to Walt Disney World we seem to go against what so many other people do! Let me explain. I love all the different restaurants WDW has to offer.

While these counter service locations do not have the fancy silverware, the linen napkins, or the attentive server; we find the more relaxed atmosphere suits us just fine. We can choose where we eat and when, since most days, two meals is the norm. Continue reading

Have you made your dining reservations yet?” And so starts a conversation that I have had many times with folks who are planning their first Disney vacation. The puzzled look I usually get in return, as they try to figure out why on earth any sane person would make dining reservations months in advance, always makes me chuckle….because at this point, I don’t have the heart to tell them there have been times that I have gotten up at 6 a.m. for 4 straight days trying to book our dining reservations. Yes, Disney does make us do things like this sometimes Continue reading
