    We will be heading to Disney in August. We are using the dining plan. If we want to choose to order appetizers which aren't included in plan, can we just pay cash for any extras we order?

    Hi, Jackie!

    When on the Disney Dining Plan, you will receive a check at the end of your meal. Any extras (appetizers, specialty drinks, etc.) will be added to your bill that you can pay for with cash, credit, or charge back to your room on your MagicBand.  Gratuities are extra when on the Disney Dining Plan, so you will need to pay for that as well.

    I like that at the bottom of your receipt you will find your remaining Dining Credits listed, so you don't even have to keep track of your credits, they will conveniently be listed for you.

    Have a great time in Walt Disney World and I hope you have some amazing dining experiences in the parks and resorts!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
