Too much food and too much time. A TS meal in Paris can easily take two hours.

It is best to avoid all weekends if you can - always busy. But if you do have to go on a weekend, I wouldnt want to spend so much of my two days sitting in restaurants.
Great thank you.

Weekend our only option.

So if the free half plus you would say this is enough, and just pick up snacks etc on the way in-between?

Finally, what are the menus like for the meal plan? Is there somewhere to see this online?

Thanks again for your help.

Hi,

It's not just table service on the plus plan. There are plus buffets, and you can still use the standard buffets if you want to, though obviously it's not the best use of the plan. But saying that, if it's free, what are you losing?

If you Google search the menus they're in a few places. You can also find them on the official Disneyland Paris website. There's a little sign next to the menu that you can choose from on the plans. Also, you get a drink included, even though some of the set menus say drinks aren't included. That's meant for people who are paying out of pocket and choose a set menu.

I think half board is enough, but to be honest, that's entirely your choice. I had free full board plus once, and I will say it was a lot of food, and a lot of time spent in restaurants! X

In fact it is free half board plus upgrading to full board plus.
Which hotel are you looking at? It isnt possible on dlparisdirect or anywhere to upgrade from free standard level to plus level, but you can upgrade free half to full on the same level.

Sequoia lodge. It states free half board plus with option to upgrade to full board plus for an extra 240.

Also have just read somewhere that hotel buffet for breakfast is not included if the meal plan is included within an offer / package. Is this correct?

Thinking how we would use the full board plus ( 5 people at extra 50 per person) would be:

Arrive late on Friday and eat in Steakhouse in Disney Village.

Saturday would be breakfast in hotel, buffet restaurant for lunch and then sit down for dinner (likely Captain Jacks).

Sunday breakfast in hotel then Bistro Remy for a late lunch / early dinner before heading back to the airport that evening.

No, as from May this year you get breakfast at your hotel with any dining plan, whether paid or free.

At Sequoia Lodge you will get Plus level.

Speaking personally, a big buffet breakfast at Sequoia Lodge would see us through till tea time! But you can take snacks with you to keep the cost down, or there are plenty of CS places in the parks (but I avoid most of them, long queues, slow service and food not the best).

The restaurant at Sequoia Lodge is a buffet but definitely better quality than the standard ones. It does get very busy though. Alternatively you can have your main meal at one of the Plus level table service restaurants, either in the parks or the Village, or the other hotels. Plenty of choice there.

Bear in mind the in-park restaurants won't open late. Off season they sometimes close by 3pm. Other times some of them may be open till 5 or 6. Worth checking the opening times before you book.

If it was me, I would do:

Friday - eat at Hunter's Grill in Sequoia Lodge. Great buffet and good chance to explore. Also doesn't really matter what time you arrive.

Saturday - breakfast at the hotel, snack lunch, dinner at Steakhouse or Yacht Club. Alternatively lunch at Captain Jack's and grab a snack dinner at Earl of Sandwich after park closing.

Sunday - breakfast at the hotel, lunch at Bistrot Chez Remy.

EDIT: looking at your last post, you get there late on Friday and leave by lunchtime on Sunday. So there is no point in upgrading to full board as you will only have one day to eat the two meals. Full board would give you lunch and dinner on all three days.

If you really want two sit down meals on the Saturday, it would be cheaper just to pay for one.

Sorry, your original post said you got free standard meal plan, but it would include free plus meal plan, so it didnt make sense that you could upgrade.

Breakfast with free half board does now include breakfast in the hotel.
For an extra 50 per person thats 30ish for 2 extra meals each. If you definitely want to do 4 sit down meals that will work, but if you dont even have 2 full days and its a weekend you will have a very limited amount of time for rides and shows. I personally would suggest having a sit down meal/buffet Saturday lunch time when the crowds are the worst. Have your sit down or buffet on the Friday night. Then on sat evening and Sunday lunch/afternoon just get a counter service meal to save time. These are approx 15 per person.
