Character and Signature Dining on the 2017 Disney Dining Plan


Rumors were circulating recently that certain character meals such as Chef Mickey’s, Tusker House and Akershus would soon require 2 table service credits rather than only 1 credit. According to the new 2017 Disney Dining Plan guide, it looks like character dining will continue to remain only 1 table service credit per person. The only character meal that would require 2 table service credits is Cinderella’s Royal Table.


What’s even more interesting is that Tiffins in Animal Kingdom is missing from the list of Signature Restaurants. Tiffins is currently a signature dining restaurant that requires 2 table service credits per person. According to the guide, it will require only 1 table service credit per person in 2017. The restaurant recently opened in Discovery Island at Animal Kingdom and offers unique menu items inspired by global travel.

There are two possible explanations for this change…either Tiffins isn’t doing as well as expected or it is simply a mistake on the 2017 Disney Dining Plan guide. Keep in mind that the guide could still be updated at any time and more restaurants will likely be added once contracts have been finalized.
