(Sorry for the exclamation marks and bold type).
The two credits only cover the greater cost of entrees at signature restaurants.
Examples would be the surf and turf entree at Narcoossee’s ($58), the Filet Sicilian at Citrico’s ($41), several of the steaks at Yachtsman which are over $40, and also the many entrees that are $35 or more in all of them, as compared to the single credits of which the vast majority of the entrees offered are $25 or less.
I see that Kim has posted the correct answer, which is, only on the deluxe dining plan (or if you have bought one of the two super deluxe all inclusive vacation plans) is the appetizer included.
Anyway, total price for entree, dessert, and beverage at signatures will be 60-100% more than single credit restaurants. That is why they’re two credits.
The exception to the appetizer rule would be prix fixe meals and the dinner shows.
On the other hand, for about $30 a day extra, you get three sit down credits a day, appetizer, entree, and dessert, two snacks, and the refillable mug instead of one sit down, one counter, and one snack per day and no mug.
If you’re a foodie, and it works in your budget, I think the deluxe plan is the better deal. At the least it will allow you to do a character breakfast every day and a signature or dinner show every night.
