    Hi ! We (2 adults) have the DP w/ 5 table service credits each. Dinner reservations at Cal Grill, Boma, Raglan & Le Cellier. Help-what's the best way to use the credits as we're short 1 credit each & will need to pay for part or all of one meal

    What's up, A? I like the brevity and incognito aspect of using your first initial. Feel free to call me J.

    Okay, Special Agent A. Here's what you've got to do. Your mission, should you choose to accept, is to identify which meal will cost less out of pocket. Here's how I approach it.

    California Grill and Le Cellier will each take two dining credits per meal on the Disney Dining Plan. It will be much simpler to remove these two restaurants from the equation.

    That leaves you with 1 dining credit that you can use at either Boma or Raglan Road. Out of these two dining experiences, you'll want to hone in on which will cost less to pay out of pocket,

    Boma is a buffet. You'll pay a set price per person, so you can estimate what the out of pocket cost will be. Raglan Road, on the other hand, has food priced individually. Visit a third-party site like AllEars.net or wdwinfo.com for menu breakdowns. When looking at the Raglan Road menu, add up the cost of items that your group is likely to order. If the grand total is less than the cost of dining at Boma, then pay out of pocket at Raglan Road.

    This answer won't self destruct, so take your time with doing the math.
