Any guesses on how much I should budget for these ressies in August OOP?

Thank you for taking the time to read my post!!

We are heading down to Disney, our second trip (first we stayed on property and did the dining plan for the week). This time we are doing three days on property with the plan just the four of us and then 9 days in a house with my SIL and her family. We are going to attempt the following ressies and would like to try to figure out how much to budget for our meals. It will be myself, DH, DD6 and DD2.

On the plan we have Cape May, Be Our Guest, and Garden Grill planned.

Paying OOP we have the following dinners planned:
O'Hana
Akershus
Hollywood&Vine
Wishes Desert Party
Mickey's Backyard BBQ
Chef Mickey's (breakfast)

Also, Garden Grill is planned for the day we're at Epcot...any other recommendations for a ressie there? I don't want to use two credits at Le Cellier (even though DH would like to try it) and we've eaten at Teppen Edo and loved it but we have been doing a lot of teppen style meals at a restaurant close to home as DD loves it.

TIA!!

I would recommend using allears.net. The restaurant menus and prices are listed. I usually budget that way.

Here's a link...

Not sure if you've seen this or not, but here's a link to the restaurant menus at Disney. That way, you could price it out based on what you think you will eat. =)

Have a great time!

As the pp mentioned you'll be able to see prices on the menus. But at the time you make your reservations for the Wishes Dessert Party and the BBQ you will pre pay. The rest you can budget for oop when you are there.

They are pretty accurate for now and a good starting point. Disney is always raising their prices, though. Don't forget to add 18% for tips!

In Epcot I really like the Biergarten, Coral Reef & Via Napoli.

We are here now, day 5 of our trip. I used All Ears to budget and we were usually within $5. If there was a difference it was usually because of what we ended up ordering (ie something different than originally planned).

Is the Akershus dinner planned for your larger party? If not, I would do that one while on the DDP as the cost is much higher than Garden Grill.

For the OOP places on your list ('Ohana through Chef Mickey's) all are either buffets, family style or fixed prices. You can call the dining line and ask the CM the adult and children's prices for the specific days and meals you're interested in.

For the a la carte places you can check allears.

Your 2 year old will not be charged and can share with you. You will only be charged if you order something specifically for her.

Thanks everyone! Yes, we're doing Akershus while at the house as my niece is going to want to see the Princesses too. I am thinking of switching Garden Grill with Via Napoli...thoughts?

Via Napoli is actually one of the places where OOP may be better because you can order one of the larger pizzas to share and supplement with an app, salad, and/or dessert and come out pretty cheaply. On the DDP, you cannot order the larger pizzas and share; each person has to order their own individual pizza (or other entree).
