    does everyone on my reservation need to get a dining plan?

    Hi Michael!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Disney dining plans are a great addition to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. It's so nice to pay for the majority of your vacation expenses in advance of your trip! Plus, using the dining plans will ensure that you are able to enjoy many of the incredible dining experiences available at Walt Disney World Resort.

    When adding a dining plan to your vacation, you will receive one set of dining entitlements per person on your reservation per night of your reservation. Unfortunately, there is no option to add a dining plan for only a portion of the Guests on your reservation, so if you are using a dining plan you will get dining entitlements for everyone on your reservation.

    If you choose to skip the dining plan for your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation, you can always pay for each of your meals with cash, credit card or Disney Gift Card. Or, if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you can pay for your meals with your MagicBand to have it charged to your room account.

    Let us know if you have additional questions as you continue planning your trip. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
