    Is it possible to have a different dining plan for different people in your group? My son and husband eat A TON but daughter and self, don't. Sorry if this is a repeat, I could not find

    Hi Michelle,

    Thanks for visiting us today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I see a summer vacation to Walt Disney World Resort is in your plans. How exciting!

    My family loves the Disney Dining Plans. They give us the convenience of not having to worry about budgeting for meals. These plans can easily be added to a Magic Your Way Vacation Package, and each Guest in the same room will receive the same plan and number of meal entitlements per night of stay. But you have the flexibility of using these whenever you want, from the moment you Check-In until midnight of the night you Check-Out.

    We typically plan on the restaurants we want to experience first, and then plan our days around them. We enjoy visiting all the countries in Epcot, but also like the flexibility of a buffet dinner like the one offered at Chef Mickey's. And sometimes one of our family members may not be too hungry, so we would either share a meal or order an appetizer and pay for it out of pocket.

    One last tip: remember to book dining reservations up to 180 days in advance. The easiest way is with the My Disney Experience mobile app, so download it today. Happy planning!
