    My husband is fulfilling a lifelong dream of mine and we are surprising my mom with her first Disney trip. However, we want to take a few date nights. If we use the Disney dining plan, can we split and make 2 separate reservations for the same night?

    Hello Diamond!

    So wonderful to hear that you and your family have planned a vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort! Kudos to your husband for fulfilling your dreams and to you for surprising your mom with her first trip! You can definitely split up and make separate reservations. The great thing about the dining plan is that you receive all of the credits the first day of arrival and dining credits are assigned by room or reservation as a total not to an individual. Therefore you would be able to use the credits on your reservation regardless of who is consuming the meal. When you use the dining plan, be sure to let your server know beforehand that you are on the dining plan. At the end of your meal, they will scan one MagicBand for the total of the dining credits being used for the dining party or the amount of guests enjoying a meal.

    Happy Planning!
