    We have breakfast reservations at Cinderella's Royal Table and have chosen the Disney Dining Plan. I see that it uses 2 table service credits per person. We will be doing all meals during our stay in WDW. Is it wiser to use 2 credits or pay out of pocket?

    Hi Marilyn! This is really a great question! Thank you for coming to the Disney Parks Moms Panel for some guidance!

    A breakfast at Cinderella’s Royal Table is sure to make anyone feel like royalty! It always felt surreal and magical to be able to walk up the spiral staircase and into Cinderella Castle! While dining with some of our favorite Disney Princesses was so much fun, as was looking at all of the young Princes and Princesses having the time of their lives!

    Our family usually uses the Disney Dining Plan to pay for meals that require two table service credits, because it usually would be more expensive than a restaurant that requires one table service credit, especially if you have to pay out of pocket for one of your meals. We then do some research by looking at menus and prices on websites such as and we try to find out what will be the most inexpensive meal we have booked. Once we have that figured out, that is the meal that we usually pay for out of pocket! Our family always travels on a budget and we are always looking for ways to save money, while getting the biggest bang for our buck!

    I hope that you have a regal dining experience, one fit for a Prince or Princess! Give Cinderella a hug from me!
