[QUOTE=Cavey;1105646]It depends. At Red Lobster I sometimes order the Calamari appetizer as my meal. It’s a huge portion, and I still get the rolls and extras that come with a full meal.[/QUOTE]
Well, if you’re talking about any of the WDW restaurants that offer Prince Edward Island mussels, I’d agree. Those things are meals in themselves.
Also, there are several appetizers at California Grill that they will allow you to substitute as an entree and especially some of Yoshi’s sushi rolls are quite filling.
But again, we’re back at the fact that you’re using 2 credits for your dinner on a meal that will cost far less than the $62 break even point.
If you’re going to do that, you might as well pay out of pocket instead.
In fact, here’s an idea!
You’re on the dining plan and can use your credits as you wish (within limits) and those credits are pooled together for all guests in your room.
Instead of stressing about being allowed to substitute an appetizer for an entree, pay for your child’s appetizer meal out of pocket and bank the credit.
If you bank two credits, you can go to a signature restaurant instead of a regular restaurant.
As always, do your research via the All Ears menus and see what might work best for you.
