Hello all. It’s a been long time since I was here last. Our last trip to WDW was in 2010(?).
I have been looking at the dining plans and was surprised when I did the math on them. The Quick Service Plan for four people (2 adults. 2 kids under 5) breaks down like this if I am correct.
2 counter service meals per person per day. That’s 8 meals a day. I’m not including the snacks. Just actual meals. That figures out to $109 A PERSON! PER HAMBURGER/CHICKEN SANDWICH MEAL?! Granted I have to figure in the occasional churro or Mickey Ice cream. But still. Have the prices gone up that much? Or am I doing the math wrong.
Before anyone suggests changing plans. I want to send a WV family who has a 3 y/o son with Stage IV Neuroblastoma on a 2 day trip to the MK and a stay at the CARS resort (his favorite movie). I figure that 2 days is all they can afford away from home/hospital. And counter service meals would be the quickest and most kid friendly route. So going for full on Table Service is not in the cards. I might upgrade to the 3 meal plan taking the average cost down to about $87 a meal. Still steep for burgers and chicken fingers. I’m basing the menu on the eatery of choice of my and my wife, Pecos Bill and Cosmic Rays.
Thank you : )
