Starter, Side(s) and Dessert Only

Hi all,

may be a silly question - but can you eat at one of the restaurants (eg Le Cellier) and just have a starter (really want to try the cheese soup) and then maybe just some sides and a dessert each? ie not having a main course or is this frowned on??

We don't eat huge portions and soup with a side each is probably enough for us - may have room (or not) for dessert.

we will not be on the dining plan

Shezzy

As long as you are not on a DDP, and you are at an a la carte restaurant (not a buffet, dinner show, or family style place), then you can order whatever you want. There is nothing that would require you to order an entree.

We plan to do something similar this summer. We've never done it before, but looking to try new restaurants.

We are doing some of the same and getting a bit more mileage out of our dining plan that way b/c I am not a big eater, so we will have my hubby's meals at some places taken off the DP but will pay OOP for my appetizer and side. Then we'll share his dessert. Saves money and keeps me from feeling bloated!

Incidentally, this will be our first time on the DP - Will they automatically apply it to the highest price meal if everyone isn't using a credit or do you have to specify and do they typically get it right?

Based on the above, it sounds like sharesy's are okay too. My wife and I like to order a single appy and a single entre.

What is your plan for your leftover credits, if you are paying OOP for your meal? Each of you has to have the plan for each night of your stay. So according to the above, you are going to have extra credits.

Sounds like you need to do more research on the dining plan as you will have credits for each person on your reservation for each night of your stay. If you choose the dxddp you can use the credits for either counter service or table service, if you have the basic you will get one counter service and one table service credit per person per day that are not interchangeable. The hoop dee Doo will take care of one days dinner credit, however from the plan you communicated you will have credits left over, wasting your money.
