View Full Version : Which meal should be out-of-pocket?

If you paid out of pocket for one of these places, which would you choose? I think I'm going to use two TS's at California Grill, but I really don't want to eliminate any of these others. What would you do?

Le Cellier
Liberty Tree Tavern
Fantasmic at Mama Melrose's
Teppanyaki Dining Room

I'm know it depends on what we order, but I was just wondering if one of these tends to be cheaper than the other.

Is Teppanyaki on the DDP? I didn't think it was, but I could be wrong.

Well of the set priced options Boma is the cheapest. If you get steak, there's no way you can come out cheaper than Boma at Le Cellier, so definitely don't pay OOP for that one. So I'd say it's between Boma and Teppanyaki. Taking a glance at the menu, I'd say it'd be pretty easy to go over $26 in food, drink, dessert (assuming you would order all of that) per person. So I think definitely pay for Boma OOP.

I got that info from the WDW site. It says "Disney Dining Plan Restaurant" about midway down the page:


I sure hope it is because this is the one I'm looking forward to the most! :)

I agree that Boma would be cheapest. You don't have to pay extra for desserts or salads, etc.

Look at the menu and prices on allearsnet.com. I would immediately remove LeCellier from the list. Off hand, Boma or Mama Melrose would probably be the best bets to pay OOP.

We were on the free dining plan during our Sept 06 trip. We ate at Teppanyaki Dining Room. It was included then. However, it was our least favorite meal of the entire trip. We were not pleased with our meal there. We eat at a local Japanese restaurant frequently and it is much better than Teppanyaki.

Yes, we used the ddp for Teppanyaki last month.

The Buffets have always been the best Value cause you get so much for a flat rate... So it really depends on how much you want to order off a menu.. If you just did, say, waters and one main dish at momma Melroses, that would be cheaper, but most people do drinks, maybe an App or 2, then Boma is the best choice
