    I am travelling with my Mother in Law and we have the meal plan and she does not. Are we able to book dinner reservations together and she just pays for her bill?

    Hi there, Ley, and welcome to planDisney! My fellow panelists and I are here and happy to help you plan a wonderful Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    I love traveling to Walt Disney World Resort with a large, multi-generational party. My family frequently travels with my in-laws, and we cherish every minute of making memories together. I'm so glad your family has decided to take advantage of the return of the Disney Dining Plan! It's my favorite way to maximize savings and stay in the moment when enjoying a meal at our favorite restaurants. 

    When you visit a Walt Disney World Resort Table-Service Restaurant, you'll want to notify your server that some of your party will be using the Disney Dining Plan, and that your mother-in-law will be paying separately. There should be no problem separating your bill at the conclusion of your meal.

    Ley, I'd love to include a couple of things to remember:

    - I highly recommend booking an Advance Dining Reservation for your favorite Table-Service Restaurants, and this can be done up to 60 days before the first day of your vacation.

    - If your dining party includes six or more people, an 18% gratuity will automatically be added to your bill.

    - The My Disney Experience App will be super helpful as you track how many meals and snacks you have used. You can use meals and snacks at any time during your vacation, up until midnight on the day you check out. Here's a helpful link with a bit more information on tracking meals and snacks.

    I hope you and your family have the best time on your upcoming vacation. Please stop back by planDisney with any more questions you have!

    See you real soon!
