    Hi. My wife and I will be in Disney in June and will get the standard dining plan. My question is we have friends who live in Florida who will join us for dinner one night. Can I use my dining plan credits toward their dinners? Thanks. - Tom

    Hi Tom!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    The Disney Dining Plan  is something I use every time I visit Walt Disney World, and I love the flexibility and convenience it offers. Everyone on the same Resort Reservation must be using the same Dining Plan, and while it is not linked to any actual dining reservations it may not used to purchase a meal for anyone outside of your Resort Reservation. When your party arrives at your table at any of the restaurants around Walt Disney World, let your server know that some of you will be using your dining plan, and your friends will be paying by another method.  The Disney Dining Plans are very flexible and it is entirely up to each individual Guest how they use their entitlements, and providing there are enough credits left on your account, you can use them in any way you please - maybe using more credits on one day, and less on another. The Dining Plans are available to use from time of check-in at your Resort hotel (if you check-in online, your Dining Plan can be used from 7.00am on your arrival day), until midnight on your day of departure, and if at any time you need to check your Dining Plan balance you can do so by asking for a print-out at the Front Desk of your Resort hotel, or by asking your server at any restaurant, or by checking your dining receipt. 

    Dining reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance, either online, or by using the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
