    Visiting with my family of 4 in March. Made reservations for dinner/lunch at RainF Café, Chef Mickey's, Crystal Palace, Coral Reef, T-Rex, Prime Time, Sci-Fi and Ohana (bkfst). Which 5 should I use dining plan and which 3 should I pay out of pocket?

    Hi Amy,

    Great question. At a quick glance, I'd select Rainforest Cafe, T-Rex and Sci-Fi as the three to pay out of pocket, but without knowing what you might order it's best for you to review the menus. Take a look at the independent site Search Dining, then Menus under the top heading, "Walt Disney World." Here, you'll see general pricing that is typically up to date. My rule of thumb is to always utilize dining credits for character dining experiences (Chef Mickey's, The Crystal Palace, 'Ohana). I would assume Coral Reef might be the next most expensive meal of your selections and the 5th option would be determined upon your menu preferences. 

    You've got great taste, Amy, and are certainly in for a treat with these dining locations!

    Bon Appetit,
