    When using the dining plan, can I swipe my own magic band when picking up food for my family? Ie: can I order and use everyone's meal credit when picking up a meal for everyone - therefore eliminating the need for my kids to stand in line with me?

    Hello Tyler!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  Let me be one of the first to wish you a very magical new year!  I hope you are having a wonderful time planning your Walt Disney World adventure.  It sounds like you are already off to a great start if you've added one of the amazing Disney Dining Plans to your reservation.   I always end up saving money using the Disney Dining Plan, rather than paying out of pocket for meals on vacation.   It's my pleasure to help answer your question today.

    Great news Tyler, as long as your entire party is on one reservation ( staying in the same room) you can order and pay for every person in one transaction, using one MagicBand.   You will simply order and let the Cast Member know you are using the Disney Dining Plan once they get a total at the end you will tap your MagicBand and put in a four digit code you will choose at check-in.   It's that simple.  Your family can wait at a table and rest their legs for all the upcoming fun that will be waiting in the day ahead.  My husband will often find a seat with the kids and I will order for the whole family.   It works out well and the kids aren't  complaining that they have to wait in line.

    I hope this has helped today.  If you think of anything else we can assist you with, please let us know.  All the Disney Parks Moms Panelists love to lend a helping hand every chance we get.
