    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!
