    Hi Concetta!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It sounds like you are getting ready for a magical vacation and I'm happy to help you with your plans. This is a great year for a visit to Walt Disney World Resort because there are so many new and exciting attractions, dining experiences and entertainment options to enjoy during your trip. Be sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all of the latest announcements as your trip approaches!

    The Disney dining plans are a great addition to your vacation because it's so nice to pay the majority of your dining expenses in advance of your trip. I love when I don't have to worry about the cost of each meal and my whole family can simply relax during our vacation! The dining plans allow you quite a bit of flexibility when you use your dining entitlements during your trip. Unfortunately, you cannot use your entitlements to pay for meals for Guests who are not on your Disney Resort hotel reservation. So when you are dining with your friend, you can use your dining entitlements for the Guests on your hotel reservation and pay for your friend's meal separately using another form of payment, such as cash, a credit card or a Disney Gift card.

    Be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app to use during your trip so you can take advantage of Mobile Ordering for quick service restaurants. Plus, it's the easiest way to keep track of your remaining dining entitlements on your dining plan! Let us know if you have additional questions as you continue planning. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
