    Hello and thanks for all the GREAT tips! my question is about the dinning plan is it better pay out of pocket for the signture dinning are use 2 of your credits? thanks again

    Jennifer - this is a great question.  It really depends upon what your other plans are for table service.  In general, I've found it better to pay out of pocket for signature dining, especially Cinderella's Royal Table, with the caveat that this only works out in your benefit if you are already planning to eat at more table service restaurants than the dining plan covers.

    I'd recommend that you sit down with a list of all of your table service restaurant reservations, and list all of the prices (for buffets) as well as the average prices for entrees and dessert for the others (hint: you can find menus for most places at (click on dining)).  Then, decide from there, paying out of pocket for those that will cost the least amount.

    I hope that helps!
