    We will be traveling w/ family and have one of my daughters staying in a room w/ her Grandparents to allow us to stay at the Disney Resort that we liked best. Are we going to have issues for meals if the grandparents choose to dine alone 1 night?

    Hi Lisa,

    I believe you are asking about your daughter's Disney Dining Plan entitlements. Each person receives their own, "Key to the World Card" at check-in. This will hold your Park passes, Dining Plan credits (if you purchased the meal plan) and will serve as a room key as well. Your daughters will be linked to her Grandparents room, but you are still able to keep her card with you so she can eat with you. Just be sure at meal times that you tell the Server that while you are all on the Dining Plan, she is on a separate room. Clarify for them that you want her card used for only one meal and the rest of the meals put on your card. This way the grandparents can opt for a quiet meal for 2, and you can enjoy a meal with your entire family as well. The "key" is in making sure you clarify for the Server before you order, that you are dealing with 2 separate Dining Plans. When eating at a Quick Service restaurant, it will be best to order and pay for her meal separately, to keep the credits straight.

    Hope this helps and please let me know if you need further clarification. 

    Have a wonderful vacation,
