    Hi!! LUV panel! Going Dec15-Dec22 GR.of 8 - I have 1 too many ADR. Can't figure out cost per to determine which one to pay! Here is list: Crystal PM, Mama (Fantasmic) Lunch, ParkFare PM, Ohana AM, Tusker AM, Chef AM, Ohana PM, Akershus PM - any advise? THX

    Hi, Maria!

    Isn't it wonderful to have secured so many fantastic Table-Service reservations that you have one too many? What a happy problem! (Great choices!)

    First, pay out-of-pocket for breakfast, rather than a lunch or dinner. When Guests use their Dining Plans to cover the cost of a meal, this is often the one that is the least in cost (most often because there is no dessert offered at breakfast, which is an additional item to be calculated into your lunch or dinner bills.) Definitely do not pay cash for your Fantasmic! Meal Experience because Guests who enjoy lunch or dinner at Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano, while using their Table-Service entitlement, each get a complimentary appetizer. Take a look at their menu, and you'll see why you won't want to miss this delicious perk!

    So, we are left with paying cash for your 'Ohana, Tusker House or your Chef Mickey's breakfast. Chef Mickey's will surely have the highest price tag of these three, so use your Dining Plan to cover that cost. According to one of my favorite unofficial websites,, Breakfast at Tusker House ranges from $26 to $31 for an adult, and $15-$17 for kids 3-9. 'Ohana breakfasts run $22-$27 per adult and $13-$15 for kids 3-9.Thus, I suggest that you pay out-of-pocket for your breakfast with Lilo and Stitch at 'Ohana.

    For exact pricing, call Disney Dining and ask for the adult and child cost of these two meals on the exact date you'll be dining. Either way, one of these two meals should wind up being your least expensive of those you've reserved.

    Enjoy! Send more questions as you think of them; I'd love to help!
