    When using a Dining Plan with a group on one reservation, does the app break down which person has used meal or snack credits and how many, or are all credits pooled together for the group and each person should keep track of what they use from the pool?

    Hey there, Shannon, and welcome to planDisney! I'm so excited that you're planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation with a group! Your visit will be here before you know it, and there's no time like the present to make sure all of your plans are in order.

    Shannon, it sounds like your group will be using a dining plan during your vacation. My family loves to use a dining plan because it makes our vacation feel more all-inclusive! When you use a Disney Dining Plan or Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan, you'll see all of the available meals, snacks, and resort refillable mugs listed in the Check Dining Plan section under Resort Hotel in your My Disney Experience Mobile App - this is the quickest way to reference your available meals and snacks. You'll see that the meals are broken down by table service and quick service meals, as well as kids and adult meals, if applicable, but not by person. You can also see a summary of all past charges, and it will show you which member of your party made the charge.

    Recently my family shared a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel room with some members of our extended family. This meant that we had a whole bunch of meals and snacks to keep track of, so just to be sure I was on top of everything, I kept a running tally on my phone whenever anyone in my immediate family used a meal or snack. That way, I knew we weren't dipping into any of the meals and snacks that were meant for the other folks in our group.

    Shannon, be sure to book your Advance Dining Reservations 60 days before the first day of your visit. I love to have a table service meal during each day I visit a Disney Theme Park, because I love to take that opportunity to relax with my family during an otherwise busy day! Also, take advantage of the Mobile Food & Beverage Order feature of the My Disney Experience Mobile App. You can place an order while you're waiting to board an attraction, and spend less time waiting for your food at pick-up!

    I hope this information is helpful to you as you plan for your vacation. If you need any recommendations on where to find incredible meals and snacks, swing like Tarzan back to planDisney!

    See you real soon!
