look at this link …go.com/planning-guides/…

for the 2013 there is a adding on 18,01 dollars pr day for a adult and when considering a table service meal for a adult can be from 32 dollars a head thats a saving for 14 dollars for every day

for the kids its only 2,84 dollars exctra pr day

But You will need to talk with Your TA or to get the correct price

can the card they give out with the dining plan credits be loaded up with extra money so we can use it in resturants without carrying cash?

When checking in at a Disneyresort each of You get a card a kee card where all the elements You have booked is on like the quick service kee to the room , tickets , this card You will use for Your entrance to the parks and dining etc and it really dosn´t matter which card You give out of the once staying with You since al credits will show on the note You will get from the eating place.

You can have charge on that card if You want , but then when You check out that will be withdrawn from Your visacard or debit card which ever You have provided to Disney

If You want this dining plan to have the exctra element of TS credits on You will have to book it before the holiday and pay for it before travel

Hope You understand me because I have difficulties explaining this

Go into the page www.allearsnet.com thats a pretty ok page to find any informations and they have prices of every restaurant in Disney so You can see what it would cost You if You pay out of pocket if You decied to just do some table service credits

I believe you have to upgrade 5 days before travel, also be sure to make advance dinner reservations (ADR) Disney table service restaurants book up quickly

Have you booked direct with Disney or through a travel agent/tour operator ?

if through a agent/operator you will need to add it to your booking with them

Dining plan has to be added in advance.

As advised, whether you plan to eat at a table service restaurant and use a dining plan or pay out of pocket, reservations are strongly recommended and can be made up to 180 days in advance. Popular venues like character meals, in park dining options, and signature restaurants will book out in advance.

"can the card they give out with the dining plan credits be loaded up with extra money so we can use it in resturants without carrying cash?"

Sort of.

You can give a credit card at check in which will allow charging privileges on your key card (your room key that has your name on it and is also your park ticket and also how you manage your dining credits). The card you gave will be charged when you check out. If you'd like to pay cash instead you should probably go to the desk the night before check out to settle up all the charges and avoid them hitting the card you put on file.
