    Hi Again! Trying to decide which TS meals best to pay for (have CRT reservation- Yay!). ...Whispering Canyon, Be Our Guest, Sci Fi or Hollywood & Vine Fantasmic meal? Thank you for all your great suggestions, you take the stress right out of plannin

    Hi Gina! How lucky that you scored one of those hard-to-get Cinderella's Royal Table reservations! You're going to love dining in Cinderella's Castle with the princesses!

    You've planned some other great meals too! My kids request that we eat at the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater on every Walt Disney World visit -- they just love sitting in cars and watching campy movies while they eat! This fun restaurant is also one of the most inexpensive table-service restaurants at Disney, so I'd recommend that you pay out-of-pocket for that meal if you're short on Dining Plan credits. Definitely use your Dining Plan to pay for Hollywood & Vine since the all-you-care-to-eat buffet will be a little more expensive than the a la carte meals.  

    Be Our Guest and the Whispering Canyon Cafe are fairly comparable in price. If you need to pay out-of-pocket for one of those meals, I recommend that you look at the dinner menus for both of those restaurants on the Disney website so you can estimate the cost of the meals based on the dishes your family is likely to order. Then you can choose to use your Dining Plan credit to pay for the more expensive of the two.

    We're so happy that the Moms Panel is taking the stress out of your Disney vacation planning! We love talking about Disney, so please visit us again with all your questions! We're happy to help!
