    I have dinner reservations at Be our guest. We are 2 adults & 2 kids. The restaurant requires 2 Table Credits/person. We would like to use 2 table credits/ kid. However we would like to pay for the adult meals using cash/credit card. Is it allowed?

    Hi Aparna!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Good choice on the Disney Dining Plan! I love that the Disney Dining Plan helps me plan my meals on set budget! Now to your great question...the answer is yes. You can utilize some credits for the kids' meals and pay the other meals using cash, credit cards, Disney Gift Cards and room charge via your MagicBand. Once seated, your server will ask if you are on a dining plan. This is your chance to tell them how you are considering using your credits and that the rest will be paid out of pocket. A few things to keep in mind - gratuities are not included in the dining plan and the child table service credit requires the child to order from the kids menu (unless the restaurant strictly offers a buffet). By the way, you are going to love Be Our Guest Restaurant! Be sire to visit the West Wing and keep an eye on the enchanted red rose! 

    Quick Tip: Be sure to download the My Disney Experience App on your smart phone before your trip! Here you will be able to see wait times, book and manage your Fast Pass+ selections as well as your dining reservations among other things!

    Hope this helps! It has been a pleasure assisting you Aparna. Please feel free to send me any other questions you may have!
