    What do you do when some people at a table service restaurant are on the Disney Dining Plan and some people are not?

    Hi William,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are delighted that you brought this question to us. It certainly sounds like you are doing some fantastic planning.

    When guests at a Table-Service meal are not all on a Dining Plan, the cast member who serves the meal will charge accordingly. She or he will use dining plan credits for those individuals on the Dining Plan and will request a form of payment from those who are not on the Dining Plan. 

    When we have dined at various restaurants in the past, the cast member who serves us has always asked if we were on the Dining Plan. So I am sure your party will be able to sort out payment at some point during your dining experience.

    Hopefully, you have made Advanced Dining Reservations. Reservations can be made 180 days in advanced. Restaurants do fill quickly.

    I do hope you have a magical time when you visit! Mickey and Minnie Mouse cannot wait for you to arrive!

    Happy Planning!
