    We have the Disney dining plan and it seems with that we are able to go to restaurants that have buffets but we can only pick one meal off the menu. Is this correct?

    Hi, Jess! Taking a look at the Disney Dining Plan, I found this description of how a Table-Service dining credit can be redeemed:

    Each meal from a Table-Service location includes one single-serving:
    Breakfast: includes Entrée and Non-Alcoholic Beverage OR full Buffet/Family Style Meal, and tax (gratuity not included)
    Lunch and Dinner: includes Entrée, Dessert and Non-Alcoholic Beverage OR full Buffet/Family Style Meal, and tax (gratuity not included)

    If you choose to visit a dining location that features a buffet, such as The Crystal Palace featuring Winnie the Pooh and several of his favorite friends, you are more than welcome to fill as many plates as you like until there's no longer a rumbly in your tummy. No need to decide if the fluffy omelets or Pooh's Puffed French Toast are more delicious (trust me, make a whole plate of these from the kid's section!), as you are welcome to all of it! 

    Jess, if you dine at a Table-Service Location that features a menu full of individual entrées and desserts, you will need to make a choice of which one sounds more delicious. This can be quite a difficult task at some of our favorite locations! Oh well, it may just mean you will need to visit again for another unforgettable meal!

    I hope this helps you while planning where to make your Advance Dining Reservations, Jess. Don't forget that you can begin making these up to 180-days in advance of your visit. Please stop by again if you have any other questions for us or even if you'd like some great dining recommendations.
