    If we have the dining plan (not the deluxe) and want to eat at a signature restaurant, does the same rules apply as at a table service restaurant (entree, dessert and beverage) or does an appetizer come as well?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Pablo! It sounds like we have something in common and you also love the ease and flexibility of the Disney Dining Plan. One of my favorite ways to use it is by combining two Table-Service credits to enjoy a meal at a signature restaurant. Some of my family's favorites include Narcoossee's at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, and Flying Fish at Disney's BoardWalk Inn, neither of which we'd have thought to try if we weren't using the Dining Plan.

    When you're using the Disney Dining Plan, you are given credits for one Quick-Service meal, one Table-Service meal, and two Snacks every day. Your Table-Service credit entitles you to a beverage, including alcoholic beverages for guests over the age of 21, an entrée and a dessert. When you use two Table-Service credits to eat at a signature restaurant the same courses are included in the meal. Of course you can always order and pay the difference when it's time to sign the check! If you're a real foodie and want to have an appetizer, entrée, and dessert with your meals, you might want to consider upgrading to the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan, which includes each of those courses when you use a credit at a Table-Service dining location.

    Have a magical day, Pablo!
