    I have a lunch reservation booked at Cinderella's Royal table and I didn't realize it uses 2 of your dining credits per person? Does that mean I will be short a sit down meal for another day?

    Hi Maureen!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Firstly, congratulations on making a dining reservation at Cinderella's Royal Table! This magical location is very sought-after and it can be tricky to find an available opening there.  You will meet Cinderella before you are taken up the spiral staircase to the banquet hall, where several other Disney princesses will visit your table for photographs and autographs. It is a very special occasion.There are some dining locations around Walt Disney World Resort that require two Table-Service credits per person, per meal. This is mostly for Fine/Signature Dining and some Dinner Shows, and Cinderella's Royal Table. With the Disney Dining Plan you will receive - per night, per person - one Table-Service Meal, one Quick-Service Meal, two Snack Credits, a nonalcoholic Beverage (or alcoholic Beverage for Guests 21 and over) with each meal, plus a refillable drink mug, so in theory if you are using two Table-Service entitlements for one meal you will be short of a Table-Service credit for another night. The way I like to use the Disney Dining Plan, and the best way to ensure the best value, is to go big! If I book dinner at a Signature Restaurant that requires two Table-Service entitlements, I will pay cash for my dinner on one other night - but I look at the menus/prices, and then use my Disney Dining Plan for the most expensive option. At this time, Cinderella's Royal Table is listed as over $60 per adult for dinner, so using your meal entitlements for this experience is very good value. Please note that all prices are subject to change at any time.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
