    For our upcoming trip we have 2 families with dining plans on one reservation for Be Our Guest. We want to advance order but it says no split checks. Can we advance order and have each family pay with their own dining plans or do we need to wait?

    Hi Dominic,

    How exciting that you will be visiting Walt Disney World Resort with friends and family. Is your vacation coming up soon?

    Beast wants all Guests to enjoy his majestic castle in Be Our Guest Restaurant. It is open for dinner as a Table-Service restaurant, but also for breakfast and lunch as a Quick-Service venue. All Dining Plans are accepted for breakfast and lunch and the best part of it is that you can also make advanced dining reservations up to 180 days early.

    But wait, there’s more! You can even order your food ahead of time, minimizing your time waiting in line to make your meals selections. Even though you don’t pay until you Check-In at the restaurant, at this time, if you pre-order your meal, you would have to use the same method of payment for the whole reservation. This includes split paying with Dining Plan credits and cash or using Dining Plans from different reservations. You do have a couple of options. Each family could make their own reservation for approximately the same time or have one family use Dining Plans credits for both families, and later return the favor. On a recent visit, we opted not to pre-order, but our wait in line was no more than 15 minutes.

    One last tip: the My Disney Experience mobile app can now keep track of all of your Dining Plan meal credits, and also lets you order ahead at select Quick-Service restaurants. Happy planning!
