In my 16 or so trips always paid OOP for dining

But booked free dining (pin code) for Thanksgiving week since I am afraid there will not be a room only discount.

Considering doing 3 signature meals instead of six 1 credit meals since we have done so many of them.

Are there restrictions on what we can order?

Considering

Cali Grill
Yachtsmans
Narcoosees


Thanks

You will only be able to order an entree, a dessert and a non-alcoholic beverage if you are using the dining plan at one of the signature restaurants. Appetizers, soups, and salads would have to be paid out of pocket. For example, if the most expensive entree item is only around $45.00 and the most expensive dessert is only about $10.00, then it doesn't seem to me to be worth two table credits.

ETA: Made corrections to be clearer.

Now im confused, there are entree items for 65-70 at Narcoossees and Yachtsman. Are you saying the cap is $45 for using the DP credits?

There is no cap. You can order anything of the menu with rare exceptions. I know Via Naopli has some restrictions about their pizza and credits.

There is no cap.

You can order the $65-$70 entrees on the dining plan. With the addition of dessert and the beverage Narcoossee's and Yachtsman would be worth using 2 credits. Farther down on the Narcoossee's menu are some add ons such as crab legs and crab cakes. These would be OOP because they are in a separate section of the menu and have separate price points.

I think what the poster meant was that if the most expensive entree on the menu is $45 + $10 dessert = $55. If you divide that by 2 credits you're only getting about $27.50 per credit. Even if you add in the beverage it will still only be about $30 per credit in which case there are some 1 credit restaurants that will give you a better value for 1 dining credit.
