    With the dining plan table service, Does every one in your party have to order ?

    Hi Debbie,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It sounds like you're planning to take advantage of one of the fantastic Disney Dining Plans. I find it so convenient to know I have our dining expenses paid for before we leave home. I do think it's important to figure out how you plan to use your dining entitlements to make sure you're getting the most from your Dining Plan. 

    The short answer to your question is it depends on what type of Table-Service Restaurant you are visiting. If you are dining at a typical table-service restaurant, I have not had a problem sharing an entree or having someone at the table who didn't order. If you are dining at a Character Dining Experience, a Buffet, a Prix Fixe meal, or a Dinner Show, then each person will be charged the appropriate number of table-service entitlements. 

    Debbie, thank you for visiting us with your question. I hope you'll let us know if we can help you with any other planning questions. 
    Wishing you happy planning and a magical vacation,
    Amy H.
