    Can I use my Dinning Plan Table Service Credits to pay for the meal of friends that dont have the Dinning Plan?

    Welcome back to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Susan!

    Ooh, my family and I love the Disney Dining Plan, and when we visit Walt Disney World, we often plan our days around our Advanced Dining Reservations. I'm sure that you are going to find some new favorite restaurants as you dine around The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Disney Dining Plans are part of a package at select Walt Disney World Resort hotels, so the use of those Dining Plan entitlements may not be transferred to someone who is not on your Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation. When you are first seated, simply tell your server which of you will be using Disney Dining Plan entitlements, and they will walk you through the menu, explaining your options based on your particular plan. That server can also easily generate separate checks if you'd like them to do so. When finished with your meal, you can use your MagicBand to access your entitlements, paying for the gratuity and any additional purchases by either charging to your room (if you have enabled charging), using a credit card, or by paying with cash. You'll be able to keep track of how many entitlements you have remaining by using the super-handy My Disney Experience mobile app. So easy!

    Have so much fun planning your visit, Susan! Be sure to send us more questions as you think of them, too. We love to help!
