    I have the DDP for my family for seven nights. So my question is out of CRT, Mickey's BackyardBBQ, and Spirit of Alhoa which on should we pay out of pocket? We will be at Disney Sept. 12 to 19th.

    Hi Jennifer,

    This question is a bit tricky.  You should definitely use the dining plan for Spirit of Aloha, even Tier 3 seating is more expensive than either of your other two options.  As far as the other two dining options, Cinderella's Royal Table and Mickey's Backyard Barbecue are comparably priced.  The cost for adults is slightly less (by pennies) at CRT; however, the cost for children is less at Mickey's Backyard BBQ.  If everyone in your family is over the age of 9, I recommend paying out of pocket for Cinderella's Royal Table.  If you have at least 2 children that fall into the 3-9 age group, then pay for Mickey's Backyard BBQ.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
