    Looking at the Disney dining plan, x1 sit down and x1 quick serve option. Which restaurants are the best way to get the most of 1 dining credit for dinner ? Eg Ohanas is $62 normally but only 1 dining credit.

    Hiya, David, and welcome to planDisney! I am absolutely thrilled that you're here with this amazing question today. It's one that I've researched, because I'm a huge fan of dining plans at Walt Disney World Resort. Not only does a dining plan encourage me to try new experiences, I also appreciate the savings it offers my family.

    David, I love that you've been doing your homework about the awesome value of the Disney Dining Plan. If you're the kind of person who likes great food and a great deal, you've come to the right place! You're exactly right about dinner at 'Ohana - to me, this feels like a really good value for a table service meal. Of course, the value will depend on what you order, so you'll want to do a bit of research on the menus where you're hoping to dine. I love a great steak and glass of wine, so I find that I get a lot of bang for my buck when choosing those items.

    I also feel that there's a great value in breakfast at Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera. This is a character dining experience with incredible meal options for diners of all ages, and don't forget that adults have the opportunity to choose an alcoholic beverage. I definitely have to recommend that you get the wood-fired steak and eggs!

    Another great value, in my opinion, is lunch or dinner at Tusker House Restaurant at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. The all-you-care-to-enjoy buffet here offers options that are difficult to find anywhere else, and it's so much fun to try new flavors, especially when you're anticipating a table-side visit from Donald Duck and his safari pals!

    Other great values include: Hollywood & Vine, Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen, and Garden Grill Restaurant. Each of these restaurants offer fun experiences, unique theming, and (most importantly) amazing food! 

    Some people look at me like I'm crazy when I say that one of the things I love most about Walt Disney World Resort is the food. I'm so glad that you're going to get to experience it during your vacation! It makes me so happy to share what I love with Guests like you! Please stop back by planDisney with any other vacation planning questions you have as you continue to prepare for your arrival.

    TTFN! Ta-ta for now!
