    We plan to have breakfast at the Grand Floridian Cafe and is wondering if we are on the deluxe dining plan, can we just order one beverage (either coffee or juice) + one entree?
    or can we have both coffee and orange juice + entree?

    I remember many of the breakfast buffets will serve both coffee and juices.

    It's 1 beverage, 1 entree for either dining plan. The only place where you get juice and coffee is at a buffet

    This is what I don't understand. It's 1 beverage. It changed from 2 a few years ago, you know this but yet figure if you are polite and ask them to break the rule it's ok. It's not ok.
    You are asking a CM to steal for you because that IS what it is!
    DP checks are audited for accuracy. CM' s are held responsible for that. If they are giving something that isn't covered by the DP they can get reprimanded or termed. I have seen it happen. If they are giving you something that isn't covered they are risking their job either by not ringing it in or pushing it through.
    It's wrong of a guest to ask and stupid for the server to comply. If you want the juice, pay the $2.99 for it or ask the manager to give it to you for free. Keep the server out of it

    Officially, it's now one beverage and one entree or platter per credit at an a la carte breakfast (no appetizer, no dessert, no substituted beverage).

    If your on the deluxe plan then simply use your refillable mug. ie: get your entree and a regular drink or juice, then either fill your mug with the other drink you want or go back up and get it after you settle at your table. You are entitled to both so make sure you use what you paid for! Since the juices usually come in a plastic bottle, I get my coffee in the refillable mug. :thumbsup2

    The GFC is a table service restaurant not a quick service

    I think the PP is suggesting filling the mug with coffee at the QS and then taking it into the restaurant. How close are these places to each other, I wonder? I've been in the QS but never eaten at the GF Cafe.
