    On the Disney Dining Plan, are all of the credits stored on everyone's card within a reservation? I'm imagining everyone needing to order individually at a quick service meal, instead of one person ordering for the group as the others grab a table.

    Your entire party's Dining Plan credits are encoded into everyone's Key to the World card. This means that one person could go up to a counter service restaurant with his one Key card and order, for example, four counter service meals himself. He can then carry the meals back to the table for the family.

    This system allows family members to split up so that they don't all have to dine together. Mom can take little sis to Cinderella's Royal table and Dad can take big brother to the Sci-Fi Dine-In and each sub-group can use the appropriate credits from the family's account.

    In general, this is a wonderful system that gives maximum flexibility. The one circumstance where this might be a problem is if you have older teens that you allow to spend some time on their own in the parks. In this instance, you'll want to make sure that the teens don't end up using more than their fair share of the family's credits on things like snacks.
