    If you have the Disney Dinning Plan can you split a Table Service meal (non Buffet) and only use 1 credit? My daughter and I don't normally eat enough for two meals and usually share meals.

    Hi Amber,

    Thank you for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Is your vacation coming up soon? Mine is so far far away, but I'm eagerly counting down the days to visit Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge!

    We love the Dining Plans. To us, the best part is able to pre-pay for our meals and not have to worry about budgets or credit card bills when we get back home. Only problem is figuring out which restaurants to try. So many options!

    For us, the Disney Dining Plan is the one that works best. We typically have a light breakfast using some of our Snacks for pastries and taking advantage of the Resort refillable mug, or in-room coffeemaker. Lunch is typically at the Theme Parks, skipping the lines with the new mobile-order feature of the My Disney Experience mobile app. And then we love enjoying a nice family meal, usually discovering new flavors in Epcot's World Showcase.

    But there's been a few occasions where one of us was not too hungry. In those situations, we would save a Table-Service credit and instead pay out of pocket for an appetizer or dessert. Be sure you let your server know you would like to share a meal, or pay for something separately. They'll gladly help you.

    One last tip: the mobile app now lets you keep track of your Dining Plan entitlements, besides being the best way to make or modify any last-minute restaurant reservations. Happy planning!
