    Can I pay out of pocket for a table service meal at Rainforest Café in AK, even though I have a reservation with my dining plan? Was thinking I might want to use that table service at another restaurant. Thanks!

    Hi Gloria!

    You definitely can pay out of pocket! I recently visited the Walt Disney World Resort and was able to pay out of pocket despite having the Disney Dining Plan. Like you, I too wanted to save my credits for another table service restaurant, specifically the Yachtsman Steakhouse which takes two credits. It was worth it! The great thing about the dining plan is that you receive all of the credits the first day of arrival. With that being said, you can certainly use as many credits as you wish per meal or save them for a restaurant that requires more than one credit per meal.
