    We are a party of 10 people in three family groups and all on the Disney Dining Plan. We have arranged in most cases to sit at the same table in restaurants. Each group wants to pay for extras, including drinks, separately. Won't this cause total confusion

    Hi, Roy!  You would be surprised how adept the cast members have become at juggling which end of the meal check goes to which party members!  We recently celebrated a friend's wedding by meeting for dinner at 'Ohana.  We had about 30 people, some on the dining plan, some with Tables in Wonderland, some with cash, some with credit cards.  Not one mistake was made on anything, and there were at least eight different checks!

    The thing that will help most is if you can keep together the parties that will all be on the same check.  That just makes it a little easier for the waitstaff to keep things organized and minimize errors.  

    Have a wonderful vacation!
