    If I make ADR for party of 8 (4 on DDP & 4 no dining plan), do we just let the server know when we order so they can split ticket? And if I make ADR for 8 and have to change later to 4, do I have to cancel and re-book? or can I just update online? Thx!

    Hello, Kelli!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Looks like some great planning is well underway for an upcoming Walt Disney World vacation.  Early planning is always key for obtaining FastPass+ and dining reservations.  Guests who take advantage of early planning typically are able to enjoy many of the popular attractions and many of the favorite restaurants around WDW.  Good job!

    When you arrive at your restaurant, simply let your Cast Member know that you would like to split your ticket in order to reflect the four guests who will be using their Dining Plan credits.  Trust me, they have done this many times before.  

    Should you need to update your reservation for any reason, you may do so online.  If you have a My Disney Experience account and reserved your dining plans through MDE, you should be able to easily retrieve your reservation and find the edit button.  If you do not have an account, simply create one and link your dining reservation and follow the same course.  Please keep in mind the cancellation policy your read prior to accepting your reservation.  The sooner you know of a change in guest numbers, the better.  

    Diane's Tip of the Day:  If you are still in the process of looking for some unique dining experiences, you will find some great dining options at Disney Springs.  Make sure to check it out!

    Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"
