These “types” of people drive me nuts!!! I have some very dear friends that I absolutely love, but when it comes to Disney planning, I think they are very naive! It’s like “come on people, who do you know that goes to Disney as often as I do? Why would I steer you in the wrong direction, you are dear friends of mine, you take my advice quite often in the real world, why not the Disney world!”
Friends of ours just went in May, they are not huge eaters at all, they purchased the 3 table service credits a day plan and decided not to make ANY, yes, I said ANY, dining reservations!!!
We explained that even our family (very big eaters) only ever needs the regular dining plan, and we always make our reservations. I mean if you don’t want to stick to what you planned you can cancel, but if you don’t make the plans, then you may not be able to eat anything but counter service! Ugggg!!! CRAZY I tell you! I try not to let it bother me, but that doesn’t work very well.
I think I get so worked up about it, because we love Disney and want others to like it as much as we do, but if you end up being disapointed, even due to things that were your own fault, you tend to just chalk up the whole experience. Very frustrating.
