    I am traveling to DW next year. I am purchasing the disney dining plan for 2 adults and 2 kids for each day we are there. Can I pay cash for Chef Mickey's and share it with one of the kids? Thanks.

    Hi, Halee!  Chef Mickey's is a buffet meal, so there isn't any sharing allowed.  If you have a child that is under the age of three, however, they can eat for free at the buffet.  

    You can, however, pay out of pocket for any meals, even if you are on the dining plan.  Many people do opt to pay some meals out of pocket so they can do some of the two credit signature dining experiences.  It's no problem to do that at all.

    If we can help you at all with some other planning for your upcoming trip, just let us know!
