    Hi, if I purchase the standard Dining Plan, and decide that I don't want to have a sit-down dinner one night, can I use a table service credit at a quick service restaurant instead? Thanks!

    Hi, Jessica!

    Thanks for stopping by the Moms Panel with your great question! The standard Disney Dining Plan will give you 1 Quick-Service, 1 Table-Service and 1 Snack credit per person per night of your vacation package. You can use the Table-Service credits for breakfast, lunch or dinner at participating restaurants. You do have the option of using a Table-Service credit for a Quick-Service meal, but I don't recommend it because it's not going to give you the value compared to what you paid for it. I have a couple of suggestions for you instead!

    First, there are lots of fantastic Character breakfast locations where you can use that Table-Service credit. I've got so many favorites like The Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom Park, Cape May Cafe in the lobby of Disney's Beach Club Resort and Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort.

    My next recommendation is to try out one of the Signature Restaurants that require 2 Table-Service credits. My husband and I have done this a few times and it's a whole different experience that we truly enjoy. We love Le Cellier Steakhouse in Epcot's Canada Pavilion, The Hollywood Brown Derby in Disney's Hollywood Studios and our VERY favorite is Narcoossee's along the shores of Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

    Lastly, there are a few Dinner Shows that also require 2 Table-Service credits per person. These are a fantastic value and will definitely give you a wonderful dining experience! My favorite is Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show!

    I hope this helps! Please stop back by if you have any other questions!

    Wishing you Pixie Dusted vacation planning!
