    HI Panel what is the best to pay out of pocket for out of Jiko, Monsieur Paul or Citricos? is it better to pay for the signature dining and use the dining plan on 1 table credit restaraunts? Thank you x

    Hi Gina,

    It's never an easy task when trying to establish how to get the most value out of your Disney Dining Plan.

    I would recommend that you take a look at the menus for each of the restaurants in question which can be found on the Menu Index of the unofficial website www.allears.net.

    Make a note of the approximate cost of each of those meals if you were to pay out of pocket rather than use your Disney Dining Plan Table-Service meal entitlements.

    Once you have done this, you should be able to see if it will work out more economical to pay out of pocket for a couple of meals which require (1) Table-Service meal entitlement versus a meal at a Signature restaurant which requires (2) Table-Service meal entitlements.

    There are so many fabulous restaurants to choose from when visiting the Walt Disney World Resort, making decisions about where to eat can be difficult. I must say however that Jiko - The Cooking Place, Monsieur Paul and Citicos are all great choices.

    Wishing you a magical trip filled with memories which will last a lifetime!
