Recommended Disney World Dining Plan One Credit Restaurant Values

Purchasing the Disney Dining Plan (or scoring free DDP!) for your Walt Disney World vacation can mean real value for your vacation dining — but some uses of those Disney Dining Plan credits (officially called entitlements) are better than others.

Here at the DFB, we help you make the most of your credits with videos like How to Master the Disney Dining Plan and info about the Best Uses of Quick Service Credits.

This time, it’s all about the one-credit table service Disney Dining Plan! We scour menus to try to find the monetary values, but we also consider food quality and the atmosphere in which guests dine. Because it doesn’t matter how much money you’re saving by using your credits if the restaurant’s environment and food are duds.

So here are our 2018 picks for Recommended Disney Dining Plan One Credit Values!

Morimoto Asia in Disney Springs

Easily one of the most spectacular restaurants in terms of decor and ambiance, Morimoto Asia in Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs also offers tremendous value. But the best part? The food is outstanding!

Dinner at Morimoto Asia is a signature affair and requires two DDP credits, but for 2018, lunch remains one credit — and it’s a credit very well spent! Some entrees here cost nearly $40, and there are plenty of options for alcoholic beverages if you’re looking to up your value even further.

21 Myths About Walt Disney World Food DEBUNKED

The World of Disney food is a complex and ever-changing one, and that makes keeping track of it all darn near impossible. That’s why you have us. ;) Here we will unravel 21 of the most prolific Myths About Walt Disney World food!

Ready to Head to Disney World?

1. The kids’ menu is only for kids.

Y’all, if your vacation is packed full of Advance Dining Reservations and tasty quick service joints, you’ll want to know that this myth doesn’t hold water. Anyone can order from the kids’ menu — and if you or your traveling companions have eyes that are bigger than your stomachs, the kids’ menu might be just right for you! Often you can find similar offerings, both common (like chicken nuggets at Columbia Harbour House) and not so common (like sustainable fish bowls at Satu’li Canteen).

Whether you’re looking to save stomach space, hate wasting food, or want to save a little money, don’t neglect the kids’ menu!

2. Only sit-down restaurants are high quality.

Review: Breakfast at Ale & Compass Restaurant in Disney World’s Yacht Club Resort

We’re starting our day in Disney World’s Yacht Club at Ale & Compass Restaurant!

Ale & Compass Restaurant opened just last November, replacing the long-standing Captain’s Grille as the casual Table Service location for the Yacht Club. (The other Table Service option here — Yachtsman Steakhouse — is a Signature restaurant.)

We’ve already visited for lunch and dinner, but I was particularly curious about breakfast, since this meal in particular had — in my opinion — more to live up to. I (and many others) always thought Captain’s Grille was a hidden gem in regards to breakfast. It offered both a buffet option along with some unique (and even memorable) a la carte items such as Dark Chocolate Waffles and the Lobster Omelet.

While many were ready for a change from Captain’s Grille lunch and dinner options, it left some rather big breakfast shoes to fill.
