    We are visiting in August 2016. We have the standard dining plan. My husband is set on dining in Morocco while we are in Epcot. Do I have to order a meal as well or can I just pay for an appetizer?

    Hi, Mishawna!

    Thanks for sending your question to Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    When you are touring Walt Disney World while using a Disney Dining Plan, you are always welcome to pay for an item that is not included in your plan; this means that you can opt not to spend one of your Table-Service entitlements if only your husband will be ordering a full meal while dining in Morocco. While I have many friends whose favorite is Restaurant Marrakesh, my husband and I have recently fallen in love with Spice Road Table, and try to stop in at least once during each trip to WDW. Everything we've ever ordered there has been absolutely delicious!

    While in WDW, we often order an appetizer or two for the table, paying out of pocket for any option that is not included in our Dining Plan. Be sure to ask your server about substitutions, too, as such policies vary.

    When you have finished your meal, your bill will reflect how many Table-Service entitlements you have remaining in your account as well as your total charge for additional items and gratuity, all of which can be charged to your account using your MagicBand or card if you have set up your account with a credit card at check-in.

    Enjoy your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World, Mishawna! Send us more questions as you think of them; we love to help!
