Not sure if this has been addressed but I was looking into the Meal Deal and consensus was it wasn't worth it. It would be for me and my DF will be DH at the time as it's our honeymoon but we don't really need fancy sit down meals just looking for quick service places and figured it would be cheaper for us to use meal deal at $21 pp and get 1 unlimited refillable soda at $9. Would we be saving anything, also as a side note does US/IoA allow water bottles into park? Would like to avoid drinking soda all day but looking to save the most and paying at least $3 a pop for a water will add up quick so that's why I was thinking souvenir mug. Unless there are other options for souvenir cup besides soda ie gatorate/powerade? Suggestions?

If you are talking about the restaurants in the parks, you can only make reservations at table service places. Counter service restaurants do not accept reservations. I think with a group that size, you should make reservations whenever you can. Check your dates...when you know them...and then decide where you'd like to try to eat.

You can bring water bottles into the parks as long as they are not open so that will save you money with refills. However...you can not share meals on the meal deal but you could certainly split lunch as the portions are quite large. I don't believe you can use the souvenir cup for Powerade since they sell that separately. Basically...if you aren't going during a time when the parks are open late, I would skip the meal deal since you won't be able to have lunch and dinner unless you like to eat a lot.

I saw you all mention the Three Broomsticks breakfast as something that you get as part of the plan, and that you can book it with the concierge at the hotel. We booked the HRH, room only since early entry and FOTL come automatically. Is that also true of this, and can I call the HRH before we arrive to make sure we can get in? We will be there during Spring Break, so trying to do some of this a little futher ahead to deal with the crowds.

This thread has been invaluable! I think I figured out the best places to eat, even though I feel like we should have made our reservations by now ! Thanks!

i think i read one of your posts in another thread.
are you the one that booked club level?
if so, you can call concierge and ask them to try to book the breakfast for you.
i don't know if you have to prepay though.

those in a package have paid for the breakfast at the time of booking their
ressie to the hotel.

if you can't get a ressie for breakfast, go to the TM that is standing outside of the 3B's, the one with a clipboard, and ask if you can get on the wait list.
they do take stand bys.

spring break has its crowds in the park.

You're welcome.

I only noticed it because I started planning for my October trip, and I always plan for a night at Pat O'Briens, listening to the dueling pianos, while sipping down hurricanes. Oddly enough, I've never had dinner there. Our Pat O'Brien visits have always been limited to drinks in the Piano Bar. Someday, I will have to try their food.

We've never eaten there either. Maybe someone can give us a review.

No...there is not and to my knowledge never has been a Steak & Shake at CityWalk. There's one not too far from Universal but it's not on property.
