Trying to save money on the Disney Dining Plan is not easy. It’s next to impossible to spend less under a dining plan then you would without prepaying if you just budget your money for the trip. To test this out, just give yourself a food budget equal to the cost of a dining plan and see how easy it is to come out ahead based on plan parameters. On the other hand, you can find ways under the dining plan to get a better value. That is to say, you can get more for your dining credit at some restaurants than at others. Many of the best restaurants in Disney World charge you two dining credits per meal, but some great restaurants only charge one. These are the top single credit table service restaurants in Disney World.
This is the best alternative to the expensive Cinderella’s Royal Table experience. It’s still got a regal castle atmosphere without being at THE castle. This character breakfast is a close comparison to the princess dining experience you get at Cinderella’s Royal Table. Plus you get all you care to enjoy buffet service and a menu that offers Norwegian and American options that please everybody. For Dinner, you get a three-course meal and kids have an extensive menu to build their own meal combinations from.
Storybook dining at Artist Point
This is a new offering from Disney. Although it is currently a single credit table service restaurant, that could change as the restaurant becomes more popular. This is a unique character dining experience that includes photo ops with the Queen and meet and greets with Snow White and Dopey. The inventive menu and woodsy atmosphere make it one of the best character dining experiences.
All You Care To Enjoy restaurants are one of the best ways to get your dollars worth, especially when you can do it for only one meal credit. This single credit table service restaurant is one of the most lauded over buffets in all of Disney World. Here you get the benefit of the exceptional cuisine offered at Animal Kingdom Lodge. Some of it is for the more adventurous palate, but there is plenty of range here to keep the pickiest of eaters well fed.
…Of American Flavors is an unsung hero of the Contemporary Resort. It does more than simply reinforce the subtle American theme of the Contemporary. This restaurant offers beautifully created dishes with vibrant flavors and boasts a gorgeously lit spectacularly designed dining room and lounge. For only one meal credit at a non-buffet-style restaurant, you can hardly do any better.
Another aquatic based motif, albeit with very different experience is Coral Reef. This is the only in-park table service other than Akershus which is also in Epcot. This is a tough choice given the many spectacular table service dining in Epcot around the World Showcase. So much of the judging here is subjective to the cuisine of choice. But we are all connected by the ocean, right? All joking aside, Coral Reef stands on its own as superb among the other single credit table service restaurants in Epcot. The dishes, service, and atmosphere are among the best. They don’t just serve seafood either.
