    We want to go to Cinderella's Royal table. Buying a Regular Dining plan (and using 2 credits) instead of the Quick Service ( pay for CRT out of pocket) is actually CHEAPER. Can we use the remaining table service credits as Quick Service Credits?

    Welcome back to the wonderful world of the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Robyn!

    I love your question because it really touches on one of my favorite things about the Disney Dining Plan, which is how well it fits into my family's budget. I often do the calculations just like you did and find that using the Dining Plan saves us money, especially when we want to do a special experience like Cinderella's Royal Table at Magic Kingdom Park.

    While you can use your Table-Service meal credit to get a meal at a Quick-Service restaurant, if you're like me and making the most of those credits is the name of your game, I wouldn't recommend doing that. The value of a Table-Service credit is much greater than a Quick-Service credit, so to make the most of them you should use them for meals at Table-Service restaurants. Maybe try another Character Dining experience, like the Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast at Trattoria al Forno! You can also redeem a Table-Service credit for a family style all-you-care-to-enjoy meal at 'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, or you can even try a buffet, like my favorite one: Boma - Flavors of Africa at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. There is a wide variety of dining experiences to please even the pickiest palates, so have a look at the list of restaurants that participate in the 2019 Disney Dining Plan, and choose a few more that your family is going to love.

    I hope this answers your questions, Robyn, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation!
