    Hi, Janice!  Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    It is great that you are already thinking about where you might like to dine during your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation.  Dining reservations for the Walt Disney World Resort are strongly encouraged and can be made up to 180 days prior to your arrival.

    I am glad to hEAR that you will be using the Disney Dining Plan during your visit.  One of the things that I love about the Disney Dining Plan is the flexibility that it offers guests, both in the various types of dining plans that you can choose from and in how you use your dining plan.  Other than at a buffet meal where each guest will be charged a table-service entitlement, there really is no rule for how many entitlements you must use at each meal.  If you and another family member wish to share a meal, you may certainly do so.

    It sounds like you are thinking about some excellent restaurants for your trip.  Narcoossee's, Tiffins, and Le Cellier Steakhouse are all amazing dining establishments!  One thing to be aware of is that all three of these restaurants, as well as some other signature dining experiences at Walt Disney World, charge two Disney Dining Plan entitlements per meal.  So while two people may share one meal at these dining locations, you will be using two table-service credits.  To determine how many Disney Dining Plan entitlements a restaurant requires, you can take a look at the list of dining locations on the Walt Disney World website.  When you click on a restaurant you are interested in, you will see a link that says "Some Dining Plans Accepted."  Click on this link to open a window that will show how many Disney Dining Plan entitlements are required.

    See ya real soon!
