    How far in advance can I reserve BBB? Also, if we (family of 4) plan on eating at CRT and 1900 park in one day do we need the deluxe dining plan? Or should we do the basic plan and then pay cash for whatever it doesn't cover at the character meals? Thanks!

    Hi Jennifer,

    Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique reservations can be 180 days in advance. 

    You won't need the Deluxe Dining Plan to eat at both Cinderella's Royal Table and 1900 Park Fare in one day.  When you use the Disney Dining Plan, you have a large pool of the credits that can be used however you like.  For example, you may use all the snack credits on the last day (which we often do to bring home goodies!). Likewise, you can use 4 table service credits in one day, which is what you'll need for each of your guests on the day you plan to visit both restaurants (Cinderella's Royal Table is 2 credits per guest in your party; 1900 Park Fare is 2 credits per guest in your party).

    It may be worthwhile to look at the numbers, however, of the big picture of where you plan on dining for the entire trip.  If you are going to be at other signature restaurants and table service restaurants, the deluxe dining plan may be a good investment. However, if you are only planning on the two you mentioned, I think the basic plan should work well.  You can always pay for restaurants out of pocket, too.

    Thank you for the question; please let us know if we can help again. Have a magical trip!
