    Can I pay with a mix of table service credits and cash? Example, pay on person's meal with cash, and another person's meal with the required DDP credits? Can this be on the same bill or do I have to split and pay separate?

    Hi Nicole,

    Glad you stopped by today with your question at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Let me help you with some hits and tips so you may plan the most magical vacation ever.

    The Disney Dining Plans are a great way to prepay for your meals without worrying about budgets. You get a number of meal entitlements per person, per night of stay; however, you have the flexibility to use them as you please.

    Many Guests may use two Table-Service entitlements at a Signature Restaurant, but then pay for cash for any additional meals, even at the same time. A few years ago, we celebrated my parents' anniversary. My reservation included a Disney Dining Plan, while theirs did not. When we dined we received one bill and were only charged for their meals. If you prefer to split the check, simply ask your server.

    One last tip: remember you can make dining reservations up to 180 days in advance. Just visit the Walt Disney World restaurants and reservations page. See you real soon!
