    Staying at a WDW resort in one room with 5 guests for 7 days with tickets to the parks. Would like to have the Quick Service dining plan but not all of the guests in the room want the plan. How do I make travel plans if only 4 people want the meal plan?

    Hi Chris!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I love to add one of the Disney dining plans to our Walt Disney World Resort vacation because it's so nice to pay for the majority of our dining expenses in advance of our trip. Plus, the Quick-Service Dining Plan allows you so much flexibility during your vacation to enjoy the tasty quick service dining options throughout the theme parks and your Disney Resort hotel without too much pre-planning, allowing you to maximize your attraction time! When you add one of the Disney dining plans to your vacation, you will receive one set of dining entitlements per person on your reservation per night of your reservation. Unfortunately, there are no options to add dining plans for fewer people than are on your reservation.

    So you have a few options for how to handle your dining plans. The Quick-Service Dining Plan includes two quick service dining entitlements and two snack entitlements for each person on your reservation each night of your trip. However, the dining plan includes amazing flexibility in how you use your credits. You are free to use your dining entitlements as you choose and you don't have to use them on specific days or for specific people. So you could choose to split the quick service and snack entitlements among the four Guests who are interested in using the dining plan, while the other Guest can pay cash for their meals. Or, you could choose to skip the dining plan for this trip and just purchase all of your meals individually during your vacation.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions as you continue to plan your trip. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
