    I've just booked Mickey's Backyard Barbecue for a group of nine. Seven of us are on the dining plan and two are not. I was able to reserve for all nine using dining plan. Will the two people who are not on the dining plan be able to pay on the day?

    Hello Emma and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel where as the current British Mum here on the Panel I'm thrilled to assist you with your jolly holiday plans to visit the magic of Walt Disney World Resort.
    Oh boy!  I'm absolutely delighted to know you've already secured Advanced Dining Reservations for Character Dining at Mickey's Backyard BBQ at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground where there's sure to be lots of toe-tapping and hoe-down fun for all your gathering of 9 folks!  
    When visiting Disney Table Service dining locations you might find that the very 1st question you'll perhaps be asked by your Cast Member server is 'Are you using the using the Disney Dining Plan today?" and I'm more than happy to share that in my own experience of dining as part of a large group of family or friends at Walt Disney World Resort where some are using the Disney Dining Plan and some are not that it truly won't be any problem at all.  Simply explain to your Cast Member Server which Guests are utilising their Disney Dining Plan Credits and who is paying out of pocket for their meals and they will happily take care of it for you.   
    Wishing you and your whole group an extra pixie dusted upcoming visit to the wonder of Walt Disney World Resort.
