    If I am not going to have enough Dining plan allotments during my trip for all my meals can I chose which meals to pay cash for? Ex: can I pay cash for two of my kids and use dining credits for the other 4?

    Hi Pam!

    The Disney Dining Plans are great at offering the convenience of not having to budget or worry about your meals and even the opportunity to save a little money on those meals while vacationing at the Walt Disney World Resort. Pre-planning can be a little tougher though, so I am happy you've visited the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your questions.

    Yes, you have the freedom of choosing which meals at which participating restaurants you would like to use your credits for. While you can't split the credits on one Guest, for example use 1-credit and pay out of pocket for a 2-credit meal, you are able to use dining plan credits for one Guest and pay out of pocket for another. However you choose to use your Disney dining credits, please let your server know at the beginning of your meal so that are able to help you order and prepare your bill accordingly.

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation, Pam, and please let us know if there is anything else we are able to assist you with.
