My suggestion for getting the most out of the deluxe plan is to do as many character breakfasts as you can and then do dinners at several of the (2 credit) signature restaurants. Many people like to do Hoop Dee Doo Revue, Mickey’s Backyard BBQ, or even the Luau at the Poly when they’ve got extra sit down credits.
Of course, I always plan to maximize value for dollars, so I study the menus at All Ears to see what fits best for me.
I always come out slightly ahead, or better. Especially if you have dinner at California Grill and you choose one of the more expensive allowed sushi hand rolls, like a rainbow roll, for your appetizer.
Like I said, study the menus. That’s probably the most important.
Oh, and keep in mind that you’ll still be on the hook for the tip.
You are also allowed to downgrade TS credits to QS any time, so you can play around a little and do say a food court breakfast (I’ve discovered they do a decent omelet at Pop Century, so I have to assume that the other food courts can do so as well) or even better, look at the menus and you’ll see you can get your lunch bill up to $18 per person at Cosmic Rays and Sunshine Seasons.
Plus, if you are driving and not flying, doggie bag your left overs if possible and take them home with you. Again, this works better if you’re eating dinner after you’ve left the parks for the night or if you’re going back to your room after your meal before heading back to the parks. Don’t forget to stop at Wal Mart or Target to pick up a cooler for the trip home if you do.
