    WIth the meal plan, if there's 4 in our party can just 2 order with table service or does all have to order. How about if dont use plan? Also we have the 1 quick and 1 table. Im concerned will need another meal with kids. Any suggestions?

    Hi Sonya!

    I hope you are having a lovely time planning your practically perfect Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Dining details are always one of my favorite things to plan as there are so many yummy options throughout the parks and resorts.

    If there are four in your party, but you only want to use table service credits for two and pay out of pocket for the other dining Guests you may do so. You'll just need to let your server know at the beginning of the meal so they can assist you in ordering and prepare your bill accordingly. You also have the option of dining and not using your plan at all, but simply paying out of pocket for your meal and reserving your credits for another time.

    As far as making sure you have enough meals, I think you'll be surprised. Every vacation we've used the Disney Dining Plan we've had credits left over at the end of our trip, so our last day we eat a lot, or trade in our quick service credits for snacks we can bring home with us. For a third full meal, we either purchase simple items like a loaf of bread with peanut butter and jelly, or bananas and yogurt to make in the room and eat a quick breakfast before heading into the park. You can also use your snack credits as an easy meal by grabbing fresh fruit or one of the larger participating snack items at several locations. 

    Happy planning, Sonya, and please let us know if there is anything else we may assist you with.
