    Can we use our dinning plan to pay for our family we are meeting there?

    Hi there, Jennifer!

    That's a fantastic question...and I think you're going to like the answer.  

    Just this past summer, some awesome changes were made to the Disney Dining Plan that added both flexibility and value for Guests.  Now, it's easier than ever to use the Table-Service, Quick-Service and Snack credits in ways that fit your personal tastes and dietary needs.  

    Thanks to those changes, you are now allowed to use your family's entitlements to pay for the meals of others who might be dining with you.  That means you can pick up the tab using your Disney Dining Plan when you're dining with your family, if you'd like.

    Here's a run-down of some of the other updates that are now in place, as well.
    • When dining at a Table-Service restaurant, you can now select a salad, soup or fruit plate instead of a dessert.  Specific options will depend on what's available at that location, but just ask your server for details. 
    • At Quick-Service dining locations, you can now swap out the non-alcoholic beverage and/or dessert for a Snack item that's available there.  Just let the cashier know your choice when you place your order.
    • The list of options for Snacks has gotten much longer, including the addition of some items that are great for breakfast (like oatmeal, cereal or grits).
    • You can now exchange a Quick-Service meal entitlement for 3 Snacks.  
    Happy Disney dining, Jennifer, and have a magical vacation!  Visit us here on the Disney Parks Moms Panel anytime with your questions.  We love to hEAR from you!
