    I am planning on more table services meals than credited on the dining plan. How I can found out costs for the restaurants and plan to get the most out of my dining plan?

    Hi Paige, and thanks for stopping by with this most delicious question!

    The Disney Dining Plan offers guests a great, hassle-free way to vacation. Meals are pre-paid in advance, so that once you sit down at your table to eat, you can spend your time studying and deciding upon menu options - not calculating prices. 

    Paige, I think you have an excellent idea to try to calculate prices in the comfort of your home before the trip to get an idea of the estimated costs of dining at all of your intended restaurants over the course of your stay. This will allow you to use up those precious Disney Dining Plan credits where it will give you the most bang for your buck!

    When making online dining reservations for Walt Disney World table service restaurants, you will be able to click on an individual restaurant for more information, including in most cases, menus with prices. To whet your appetite and tempt your taste buds, check out the delicious offerings on the Dinner Menu for California Grill, which is one of my favorites.

    Remember that some restaurants, including all Signature Dining (such as California Grill) and some other dining experiences will require two Disney Dining table service credits. So please keep this in mind when running your calculations.

    Should you have any other questions as you continue planning your dining experiences, or any other aspect of your trip, please let us know. We are here to help.

    Bon Appétit!
