    Hi Diana! Sounds like you're planning some good eating! Your least expensive meal would probably be your dinner at the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater. Since all of your other reservations are fixed-price meals, they're likely going to cost more than Sci-Fi, where you order from the menu. You can check out the dinner menu by clicking here to get an idea of what  your meal there would cost. The sandwiches and burgers are the tastiest items at Sci-Fi and they also happen to be the less expensive entrees. If you want to dine there but have to pay out-of-pocket, consider lunch instead of dinner. The lunch menu has a few more lower-priced burger/sandwich options. Because I like to eat, I'd probably choose to pay out-of-pocket for the extra meal, rather than dropping one. If you decide you must drop one, and you want to get the most bang for your buck on the Dining Plan, you'll probably want to drop Sci-Fi since it's not as expensive. However, the atmosphere at Sci-Fi is really cool; my kids just love sitting in those cars watching movies while they eat. Since you have a lot of character buffets reserved, you might consider dropping one of those instead. It's tough to choose one of those to drop, but I'd probably pick Tusker House, Garden Grill or Crystal Palace, depending on which fit my schedule and which characters my kids most love. Another option is to switch your Cinderella's Royal Table reservation to Akershus, where you can also have dinner with the princesses but use only one table-service credit instead of two, which gives you the extra credit you need for Sci-Fi.
