    I have a Florida Resident Annual Pass. My son and family are coming to Disney in August and staying at Wilderness Lodge. If free dining is available, they are going to be taking advantage of that. What is the best option for my joining them at meals?

    Hi Frances,

    Hooray for a Walt Disney World vacation with your son and his family! My family loves traveling with extended family and friends.

    You do have the option of having your bill split amongst parties. You can simply tell the cast member how to divide the bill when they arrive at your table. If your son's family is able to get free dining, they can use their dining plan credits and you can pay as you would like.

    As for making reservations, you can go ahead and make reservations for the total number dining at each meal. No need to worry about the dining plan at this time.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
