Disney Dining Plan for those staying off site
We are staying at Buena Vista Palace Resort November 10-15, 2011. Are their any Disney dining plan options for guests of non-Disney World hotels? We used points and miles to pay for our hotel and flight for four of us, so I know we saved money, but concerned with how much we'll spend on food. Thanks.

Dad's no and that's a good thing Answer
The Disney Dining Plan is available only to guests of Disney Hotels
. It's not available to you. That's not necessarily a bad thing.What do you mean that's not necessarily a bad thing?
What I mean is most people (in Dad's opinion) lose money on the Disney Dining Plan. The plan is weighted in Disney's favor. If you don't eat all of your meals, or if you don't eat at the most expensive restaurants, then Disney will come out ahead. They don't sell anything at a loss. Believe me.
Dad's Bottom Line
Liz, Dad's not a big fan of the Disney Dining Plan, in fact our family has never used it. (I do recommend it when it's free.) I think is a bit of a rip off, but that's just me.
