    Visiting in Sept with 7 day dining plan. Which meals should we pay for out of pocket? BF - Hollywood & Vine, Tusker house; L - Les Chefs de France D - Crystal Palace, Liberty Tavern, Rose & Crown, Garden Grill, 50s Diner, 1900 Park Fare, Wispering

    Hi Angela! You've planned lots of fun meals! I assume you have the Dining Plan that gives you one table-service meal for each night of your vacation and that you're staying 7 nights. Since you're made reservations for 10 table-service meals, that means you'll have to pay out-of-pocket for three of them. Buffets are fixed price and thus will likely be the most expensive of your meals so you receive a lot of bang for your buck when you pay for them with the Dining Plan. For this reason, I'd recommend that you pay out-of-pocket for the Rose & Crown, Les Chefs de France, and 50s Prime Time, where your meals will likely be less expensive. (Did you know Remy from Ratatouille often makes visits to the tables at Chefs de France at lunch? It's such fun!)

    Have a magical vacation! Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! We're happy to help!
