    I'm confused. If you use your dining package entitlement for an all you can eat buffet, do you get to enjoy the full all you can eat, or do they only allow you to go through the buffet once?


    Thanks for your question! 

    The Disney Dining Plans offer a great way to save some money on your food expenses. I also love the convenience of just charging off the meals and getting back to the fun of the parks!

    If you are at a buffet and you 'pay' with a Disney Dining Plan credit, you can go to the buffet numerous times, just as if you were paying with cash, a credit card, or if you were charging it back to your room account. Don't think of the use of a Disney Dining Plan credit as a different kind of meal, but simply as a different way of paying for your meal. 

    Remember to download the My Disney Experience App for your smartphone. That way you can take advantage of Mobile Ordering and keep an eye on your Dining Plan credit balances!

    Now write e back, and I will offer you some ideas of where to go to eat. Those are the most fun questions to answer!

    Have a Magical (and delicious) Vacation!
