Episode Description

The Disney Dining Plan is back! Famously, we are not the biggest fans at Disney Deciphered, but Joe recently bought the dining plan on his spring break trip to Disney World. He shares nine tips to help you maximize the dining plan and to make sure you are getting the most value (and not losing money) when purchasing the dining plan. 

Have you been buying the dining plan and getting value out of it? Let us know by e-mailing disneydeciphered AT gmail DOT com, messaging us on Twitter, or leaving a comment on our Youtube page. You can also follow us on Instagram!
