    Cathy from FL Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    My husband and I are going later this month and have several dining reservations. We may have booked a few too many because we want to try so many places. Do any of the restaurants allow you to split meals or is that frowned upon?

    If you ask me, Cathy, a vacation is not really a vacation unless food plays a starring role. I completely understand where you’re coming from. There’s not really one definitive answer for your question, but I’m going to do my best to share my experience.

    Certain restaurants charge not based on the food, but based on how many people are in the party. Character Meals, at locations like Chef Mickey’s or Garden Grill Restaurant, fall in this category. Other locations serve prix fixe menus. Liberty Tree Tavern and Biergarten are good examples. These types of restaurants do not permit the splitting or sharing of meals and do charge on a per person basis.

    In my experience, restaurants that feature an a la carte menu do permit Guests to share meals. Sadly, I have not yet eaten at every single restaurant in Walt Disney World so I have to caveat by saying that this may not be the case everywhere. Generally speaking, though, I don’t think it will be a problem to split an entrée. When my husband and I do this, we leave an extra generous tip to compensate as a gesture of appreciation.

    I hope that helps, Cathy. Bon appetit!
