Disney Dining

by usawannabe

Hi everyone and thanks in advance :-) Are the dining packages available REALLY considered value for money or should we just pay as we eat?

Re: Disney Dining

by jcjlkrebs

Just a quick response from a Disney season ticket holder. Eating in the restaurants at Disney is like eating in a fine restaurant and the dining card does give you a discount. If I remember right it also works at the walk up eating places. Expect all food to be more expensive at Disney than it is outside of Disney, but enjoy, it is definitely a fun place

I think it really depends on whether you plan on eating at the sit down restaurants or at the walk-up restaurants. I spent a week at WDW last summer and in my case, since I was traveling with picky teenagers who'd rather eat a hamburger than an elaborate dinner, it would not have been worth our while to get the dining plan. One thing you can do is check out some of the menus online ( and figure out how much it would cost to pay as you go vs. the meal plan. If you do get the dining plan, remember that it's important to make reservations in advance as restaurants can fill up really fast - this also means you'll have to work your schedule around your meal times. Hope this helps!

THere are several disney dining plans. One is for fast food only, one offers a sit down meal and a fast food meal per day and the other offers 3 sit down meals per day. The family and I have done the second plan and really loved it. We got to eat at some fantastic restaurants. The kids loved the food and had no problems finding something on the menu that they liked.

When we added up all our meals, it cost us less to be on the dining plan than if we had paid for each meal. That being said, if we weren't on the dining plan we would not have eaten at so many sit down restaurants so it would not of cost us as much.

We leave tomorrow for another week at Disney. We are on the deluxe dining plan which is three sit downs a day. Most of the higher end places require two meal credits so we are doing those for dinner and a nice sit down for lunch. I will let you know how this works out.

Disney is still offering free dining if you buy certain hotel and ticket packages. You should check the Disney website for more information on that. You can also check for the list a restaurants, menus and prices to see if the dining plan is something that would benefit you.

When my boyfriend and I went to Disney last year for a week we got the basic dining plan that allowed us a breakfast, lunch, dinner and 2 snacks per day. We saved a bunch of money because we like to sit down and eat. We ate at some great restaurants that if we had to pay would have cost us around $100 per meal.I highly recommend the dining plan if you stay at the Disney hotels and eat at the parks. But it all depends on what your style of dining is.

Travel Tips for Orlando

This is the world of...

by Pavlik_NL

This is the world of fairytales and entertainment. As well fun and pleasure as scientific and learning. Of all the parks present at Orlando, disneyworld is by far the most famous and largest. Four themeparks can already keep you busy for five days (better take a day of after two and then take the others). Magic Kingdom (the actual Disneypark), EPCOT-centre (Experimental Prototype Community Of Tomorrow), MGM-studios and the World Showcase. Besides the parks, Disneyworld also delivers accomodation in five (theme)hotels and a campground. Further attraction is the Adventure-lake, guaranteeing unlimited waterfun. The forework and lasershow at Seaworld is (was?) exceptionally progressive and beautiful.

*ALAS..CHURCH STREET as it was once known is CLOSED*

VISIT CHURCH STREET STATION:Church Street Station is specifically an entertainment complex in the vein of Universal’s CityWalk and Downtown Disney. But the area known as CHURCH STREET is simply the streets in the vicinity and they are aesthetically pleasing with cobblestones and interesting period architecture. Its a joy just to walk around the area.

The Church Street Station complex was originally constructed around Orlando’s original train station. The restored station along and old-fashioned bar Rosie O’Grady’s Good Time Emporium swelled in popularity until eventually a whole 10 block area of restored buildings was created with TONS of things to do.

The designers paid a lot of attention to detail and historical accuracy. The Train Depot is listed in the National Registry of Historic Places and contains numerous historical artifacts. The most impressive artifact is 'Old Duke', a steam locomotive that was in the movie 'Wings of Eagles' with John Wayne.

Like Pleasure Island, you pay a fee at the entrance to the complex and you are admitted to all the shows. Food and drinks are not included and seem to be especially priced for tourists. Weekend nights are usually very crowded, but in that good way.

Besides just bars, Church Street Station offers live entertainment, fine dining and the Church Street Exchange Shopping Emporium - a three story complex that has over 50 shops, restaurants and midway games.
Its free to enter and has great atmosphere.

Here is a list of some of Church Street Station’s more popular attractions:

1-Rosie O’Grady’s Good Time Emporium
This is Church Street Station’s original bar, and in many ways it’s still the best. It evokes the feel of turn of the century San Francisco with a dark wood bar and brass fixtures. The two real draws at Rosie’s are the Dixieland Jazz Revue (complete with bartop Can-Can girls) and a specialty drink called the Flaming Hurricane. Although you won’t be in Disney, if you have more than one you’ll see (and be) Goofy.

2-Phineas Phogg’s Balloon Works
This is where the 20&30/something tourist should go to dance the night away. Weekend nights are crowded with a good mixture of tourists and locals. The sound system is incredible.

3-Cheyenne Saloon and Opera House
This immense building is one of the staples of Church Street Station. Built inside a former opera house, the Cheyenne Saloon attracts a large crowd almost every night. It is spread out over three levels and is decorated with tons of old west memorabilia. It is worth it just to look at the inside of this cavernous edifice! There is plenty country music and you won’t feel out of place with a ten-gallon hat.

*To get to Church Street Station take I-4 to Downtown Orlando Exit 38-Anderson St. Turn left on Boone St.; left on South Street; right on Garland Ave. It’s not an easy route , but there are lotsa signs.

Explore the WONDERS OF LIFE pavilion which describes the workings of the body & latest developments in health sciences. Inside, queue (yeah, in Disney World, you do a lot of this, so, it's really crucial you're strong & healthy if you want to explore these theme parks) for BODY WARS, a ride which uses flight-stimulator technology & 70-mm motion picture footage to create illusions that swept you into microscopic world of the bloodstream, heart & brain!

carry light to disney


check your luggage and bags if you forgot everything make a list! take anything clothes and shoes and rain coats too! winter coats as well if your hotel has tolietries don't worry! but if you have Medical Supplies go to your local market! Don't forget your camera and film to shoot some characters in disney bring your towel! oh! one more thing bring money!

Richard Petty Driving Experience

by grandmaR

I had this tip under Off the Beaten Track. But when I looked at all the Orlando tips, the only Sports tip was a Sports Bar. So I decided to add some actual sports tips. Here's this one:

My son who has his CDL really wanted to drive a race car. So he called the Petty number, and set up to go on the Rookie experience. It was 11 am the day he was leaving Orlando. He had to be there in advance to get instruction and suit up.

There were two possible programs. One was a ride-along program for about $89 where you just ride with an actual race driver, and go really fast a couple of times around the track. But the program my son wanted to do was the Rookie Experience - that was about $349.00. In this one, each participant gets into a car by him/herself and an instructor is in a chase car with communication via headset from the instructor to the student. The student gets to drive 8 laps of the 1 mile; 7-10? banking track in this fashion. I think my son went about 125 mph.

They take your photo with the car (and I took my own of him while they were taking theirs) and then you sit under a tent and are called to the cars one or two at a time. Afterwards they give you a certificate to show that you did it, and also your framed photos. Their website says that you need a valid driver's license and the ability to drive a standard transmission plus must have the ability to climb through a 15" high by 30" wide window that sits 36" off the ground. (the car doors don't open)

"All participants are provided a regulation helmet and neck guard. Participants of the driving programs will also be issued a drivers suit and will need to wear socks, closed-toe shoes and clothes that will be comfortable under a drivers suit."
