    Hi, If we have a dining reservation for 4 (all on the dining plan), is it alright if only 3 people eat and use three dining credits? I don't like to eat large meals and prefer quick service to table, but want my kids to enjoy the charecter experiences.

    Hi, Kathy!

    The answer to your question depends on where you are dining.  If you are dining in a buffet (like Chef Mickey's), family style dining (like Garden Grill), a dinner show (like Spirit of Aloha), or any "all you can eat" type of restaurant, then every person seated must pay full price or use a dining credit. 

    If you are dining at a restaurant where you order individually from a regular menu, then you may opt to not use a dining credit and just order whatever you want and pay out of pocket. 

    The menus are really quite full of options and your server will help you select a nice meal, so I hope you get to enjoy some great dining while at Walt Disney World!
