    We have a Disney Dining Plan, can we use one of our service meals for a character dining experience?

    Greetings Eleanor!

    Your Disney vacation is just around the corner- you must be SO excited!  There are three levels of Disney Dining Plans:  Deluxe, Disney Dining (regular), and Quick-Service Dining Plan. As long as you have either the Deluxe or regular Dining Plan, you may indeed use one of your Table Service meal credits at a Character Dining experience. The only exception to this is Cinderella's Royal Table as it is a signature dining experience and requires the use of two table service credits.

    I would like to note that most of the Character Dining experiences are very popular and book up early. You should make reservations as soon as you can for the experiences you desire.  My family is partial to The Crystal Palace. There you can meet Pooh and his Hundred-Acre Woods friends. 

    As Tigger would say- Ta Ta For Now!  If you have more questions, come on back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    See ya real soon,
