    can I add additional meal on the dinning plan to cover character dinners ????

    Hi, John!

    If you do not have enough dining credits to cover your meals, you can pay out of pocket.  The best thing to do would be to plan ahead with your Advance Dining Reservations. If you find you have one too many credits booked, figure out which meal will be the LEAST expensive and pay out of pocket for it.  Save the credits for the more expensive character dinners.  The only way you can add on credits is to upgrade to the next plan, and it if you are just one dining credit over, it will be more sense financially to just pay out of pocket for one additional meal. Click HERE for details of each Dining Plan.  (You can find fairly accurate pricing of meals at  Notice that for buffets, they are generally cheaper at breakfast or lunch while dinner is the most expensive.)

    If you need help deciding which meals to use credits for and which to pay out of pocket, let us know your list of restaurants and we can help you out.  Good luck!
