The Disney quick service is normally free if you book at a certain time. You get two main meals and 2 snacks a day which I thought would be great, however the food was terrible. There was only one place I liked called Bongos at Disney Springs (Cuban food) and the rest was awful. We ate at our hotel (Coronado springs) and all of the other parks (Epcot, Magic kingdom, Hollywood studios and animal kingdom) even food that was raved about online wasn’t good enough. The portion sizes were normally too small, too salty and with no vegetables. Basically you’re eating fast food everyday.
Cons:Poor quality, unhealthy and lacking in nutrition.

Splurge on the one with sit down option
Pros:Fast and easy to use. Lots of locations to use. The snack credits can be used on a variety of items.
Cons:I wrongly thought the sit down meals were all character dining. There are many great restaurants that are considered sit down like momma melrose, sci if diner, etc that I did not realize were considered sit down. I would spend the extra money to get one sit down.

The Quick Service Dining Plan was the best for our family. Not having to worry about budgeting for meals, it was all loaded on our Magic Bands. This meal plan is absolutely great if you are not wanting to pay tips on a table service meal which can be additionally very costly if choosing the Dining Plans.
Pros:Quick Service is what it is...quick. Ordering off your phone app and then picking it up at the counter when ready is a great bonus and so convenient.
Cons:You don't get Character Dining experiences like on the Dining Plan. You would have to make a reservation for a Table Service Meal. Whether you can use like two Quick Service credits for this I do not know. Maybe this is one to find out when I'm next there but I am assuming not.So I would budget that as an extra paid meal.

I have used the quick service dining plan now for the past 5 years and I love it. I would NEVER go without it. I love that I do not have to worry about carrying money around or being tied down by reservations.

We were fortunate to get the free quick dinning promotion offered for late August. We were disappointed (at first) that the free promotion didn't include sit-down service. But as we ate "around the world" we discovered that counter service at WDW goes well beyond burgers and nuggets. We found really great, inventive counter service meals. This plan was also accepted at many of the third party restaurants at Disney Springs. (The Polite Pig was a favorite!)

On our last trip in March 2017 I kept track of what I had prepaid on the dining plan and what we actually would have paid at each location. We spent $12 in total more than if we would have paid out of pocket (I also took into account the drink mug). The 2 snack per day instead of the desserts at each meal was better for us. While it is also nice knowing you have paid for everything ahead of time, when we go back in Sept. 2017 we will not be purchasing the dining plan. We usually stay in DVC studios or 1 bedrooms so will take advantage of the "kitchen" option for some of our meals besides the usual breakfast in the room as we have done in the past.
Pros:paid in advance

With the new Magic Bands where you have the option of charging everything simply to your Resort room, I have found that this Quick-Service Plan is WAY too expensive and obsolete.
It FORCES you to take a drink AND a dessert when most of the time, you're just TOO FULL to eat another bite after the LARGE entree. I don't like caffeinated drinks and carry a 'Camel' filtered water bottle around with me in the park anyway so that's a waste too.
There is NO WAY that my family can eat $42 in food a day because the entrees (Plus fries and sometimes a few smaller side dishes) are usually no more than $15 if you add in a drink. And they only give you 1 snack
We would much rather pay for everything separately because I prefer to eat smaller portions and enjoy tasty snacks AFTER my stomach has settle and digested a few hours.
This is a waste of money when its now SO MUCH easier to just charge everything to the room.
Pros:Easy to use and the cashiers are VERY helpful when you want to know your options
Cons:$42 PER PERSON a day.......REALLY?

When we have visited in October/November and February we have felt the need for many table service meals and have really enjoyed them. On our previous summer visit two years ago we found that the table service meal was more like an endurance test during two weeks in the Florida sun.
This time we had the quick service dining plan for our two weeks (last week in July and first week in August).
We found that this was still too much food in the hot weather but enjoyed having the freedom of not having booked reservations.
We ordered water from garden grocer before our arrival, if we hadn't we would have needed to use credits for this.
In the event we brought quite a few snacks back home with us as we found it impossible to eat all the allowance of food.
It did give us the flexibility to have lots of frappucinos and ice-cream sundaes. Also as we weren't necessarily eating two full meals a day we did on occasion order pizza and salad and eat one large meal.
Definitely a must-do for me in the Summer and not having to allow for tips was an added bonus.
Pros:ideal for a Summer meal plan
Cons:wouldn't be enough food for us in cooler weather.

Our family loves this plan as we use snacks for breakfast and that makes it an all-inclusive vacation. There's no considering if you need to choose a cheaper item in the menu for this meal, and if you play your cards right, multiple people can eat off of one credit since at some places the portions are plentiful! A great choice!
