    My mom is staying in a separate room than my family and getting the deluxe dining. If we do character meals can she 'pay' for us all with her dining plan credits?

    Hi Laura! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    How fun to be planning a trip with the whole family! You are all going to have the best time!

    Since 2017, the Disney dining plans, including the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan, made a change that allows Guests to use their dining plan meal entitlements for meals of those dining with them. This means that if your whole party is at a Character Dining experience, your mom will be able to use her Table-Service meal entitlements for your whole family's meals as long as she has enough entitlements available to do so. She will just need to let the Cast Member assisting you at your meal know what she is planning to do.

    Enjoy your vacation, Laura! Please visit us again with any other questions you may have. Happy planning!

Hello all! I'm a happily married, proud mom to two young children, and I love to plan trips to Walt Disney World Resort. One of my favorite things about taking a Disney Parks vacation is that there is always something new and wonderful to discover, no matter if this is your first trip or if you visit multiple times per year. I'm excited to help you plan your next adventure!
