    We have purchased the deluxe dining plan. What restaurants count as one or two meal credits? It is an adults trip and we want to use only table service.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Adelia! 

    You've made a tasty selection with The Deluxe Disney Dining Plan - it is my favorite option available on the "platter" of Disney Dining Plans. While I do not have the space to list each restaurant individually, I can offer you a "menu" of tips to help you in your planning. 

    What I love most about the deluxe dining plan is the ability to enjoy some of Walt Disney World® Resort's Signature Dining Restaurants. Signature Dining experiences require two table service entitlements per guest and rank amongst the best-of-the-best. One tip I have is to redeem some snack credits to purchase breakfast items from your Resort hotel's gift shop, or quick service location, to take back to your room. This will allow you to have a bite to eat while getting ready in the mornings, and then you can use your three table service credits for an early lunch and then Signature Dining for dinner.  Here are a few of my favorites in the Signature Dining line-up (2 credit locations). 

    • California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort
    • Narcoossee's at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa
    • Le Cellier Steakhouse in the Canada Pavilion of Epcot's World Showcase
    • Hollywood Brown Derby at Disney's Hollywood Studios 
    • Tiffins at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park 

    If you are interested in experiencing any of Walt Disney World Resort's Dinner Shows, they also require two table service credits for category 2 seating. I would love to know which of the theme parks you plan on visiting, Adelia. This way, I can help narrow down my favorites at each based on your adult-only vacation while utilizing the Deluxe Dining Plan. I hope to hear from you again. 

    Bon Appetit!
