    Hello - if my family of three is at a table service meal, and my wife doesn't want a big meal, can I use two table service credits and pay out-of-pocket for her? Thanks in advance.

    Hi Chris!

    Great question! The beauty of the Disney Dining Plans is that you can use the credits at your leisure. Here's what typically occurs when you arrive at your table service restaurant, your server will ask you if anyone at the table has a dining plan. This is your opportunity to let him or her know that while everyone has a dining plan, your spouse would prefer to pay out of pocket for her meal. Your server will make a note of it and/or possibly split the check to avoid confusion. I recently used a deluxe dining plan and there were instances where it made more sense to pay for a meal at one restaurant and use double credits at another.
