    Can Disney dining credit be used for people not staying in your room?

    Hi Kerry!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I love using The Disney Dining Plans as they are so convenient and flexible to use, and often provide the opportunity to try different restaurants across the whole of the Walt Disney World Resort, including theme parks, Resort hotels and Disney Springs.  There are three dining plans available - the Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan, the Disney Dining Plan and the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan  all providing each Guest, per night of stay, different meals according to which plan you choose, along with two Snacks, and a refillable drink mug which can be refilled at the beverage stations at all Disney Resort hotels.  The Disney dining plans are available to Guests of ages 3 and over (those aged between 3-9 can choose from the children's menu, where available). At this time all Disney dining plans can only be used for Guests under the same Resort Reservation, but you can advise your server that you would like to pay using your dining credits, and your guests will be paying by another method, if you wish.  Your dining plan can be used from the time of check-in (if you use online check-in, this will be from 7.00am), until midnight on your departure day, and to see which restaurants accept the dining plans, scroll through this restaurant list, click on your chosen location and then click again on 'Some Dining Plans Accepted' for full details.

    It's worth noting that Quick-Service restaurants do not require reservations, but Table-Service dining reservations are recommended and can be made up to 180 days in advance, either online, or by using the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
