    What if we are not dining together using the dining plan? How would teenagers who are out on their own for eating sometimes use the dining plan to pay? Does only 1 person have the key to have meals taken off the account?

    Hi Mary,

    The room keys of everyone in your party with the Disney Dining Plan will have the plan indicated on their room key.  You do not need to be together to dine.  In fact, we often "divide and conquer", with some of us eating and others riding and exploring the parks at the same time.  Your party will have a total number of meal credits that can be used by any/all of you.  If your kids are going to be on their own for meals, simply give them the card, explain where and how it can be used, and they're all set.

    Have a wonderful trip!
