    When ordering food at the parks how will they know if I want to pay cash/credit or use my ddp? Do I need to inform them before ordering?

    Hello Sandra, 

    Welcome to planDisney! I see that your vacation to Walt Disney World Resort is right around the corner and soon you'll be adventuring in the magic.

    I am excited that the dining plans are back and Guests can once again enjoy the ease and convenience of using them on their trips to the Most Magical Place on Earth. This is a great question!

    At table-service restaurants, it is my experience that you will be asked when you check in for your reservation and again once the server comes to your table. This is great because the Cast Member is also able to answer any questions you may have about using the dining plan and help you navigate what is included in your dining plan table-service meal. 

    When you order at a quick-service location they also usually ask before you order, but you can let them know as well. They are also helpful in telling you what is included with your quick-service meal and what options you have. 

    Another great way to order using the dining plans at quick-service locations is through Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering in the My Disney Experience App. The app will keep track of all the meals and snacks you have and have used. It will also give you the option to pay out-of-pocket or use your dining plan and even walk you through the options at every step. Once you order ahead, simply pick up at the designated Mobile Order Pick Up location when ready and enjoy!

    I love using this feature to order my favorites from Satu'li Canteen. I can order as we stroll over from Africa, pick it up and then explore Pandora - The World of Avatar. Easy-peasy!

    Have a wonderful trip, Sandra! Thank you again for stopping by planDisney. We hope to help you plan another Disney vacation again soon.

    Magical Wishes,
