    My wife & I, a single daughter, a married daughter w/hub & 2 children are staying in same unit. Do we get separate cards if get dining plan? Also, can two of "families" get a regular dining plan and one (my wife and I) get a deluxe pla

    Wayne:

    Because you are staying in the same unit, more than likely you are all on the same reservation.  This is what determines my answers...

    Each of you will receive your own "Key to the Kingdom" card with whatever privileges you desire, from charging privileges to your dining plan (we usually just give room access to our children's cards, nothing else, in case they lose them).  FYI: Your dining credits are pooled all together into one large pot. Unfortunately, each card will access the entire reservation's dining plan credits, too, so be careful with them.   Every time a card is used for dining, your receipt will indicate how many credits are left--for the entire reservation. When our family stayed at the Fort Wilderness Cabins and had three sets of adults in the unit on the reservation, we had to plan our meals ahead and discuss those plans daily so that a couple didn't "overspend" the others' credits.

    Additionally, because you are all in the same unit, everyone in the unit has to have the same dining plan. You might consider swapping a few of the others' table service credits in exchange for a few of your counter-service credits to allow you and your wife to enjoy some extra Signature dining experiences.  Because all of the credits are in one pool, you should have no problem with this if you so choose.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
