    Hello! Do Disney Dining Plan credits have to be used by the registered guest? We are meeting friends for a special dinner and wanted to pay. Thank you!

    Hi Catherine!

    I'm happy to hear you'll be taking advantage of the ease and convenience of the Disney Dining Plan on your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I love using the dining plan, and not having to pull out my wallet after every meal because it's already taken care of! With all that goes into planning a Disney vacation, the dining plan simplifies our days, so we can truly relax and enjoy ourselves.

    You are so kind to think of your friends, and to want to treat them to a delicious meal at a Disney dining venue. When your participate in the Dining Plan, you'll be allotted a certain number of Quick Service, Table Service, and Snack entitlements, per person, for each night of your resort stay (depending on which dining plan you choose). You're more than welcome to use those entitlements at your discretion - including purchasing meals for those not in your party. You'll need to make sure to include those Guests when making your dining reservation, and then let the server know that you want to use your entitlements to purchase their meal.

    My precious Moms Panel friend, Jane (one of our UK "Mums" on the panel), treated me and my husband to a meal at Rose and Crown Dining Room on our last vacation. She and her husband used some of their dining credits to pay for the meal, and it was such a lovely gesture. We'd never dined at Rose and Crown before, so it was really special to experience a traditional British meal with our traditionally British friends! I never knew how much I liked Yorkshire Pudding. Next time, I want to try the Mushy Peas. (They don't sound appetizing to this Southern Belle, but Jane promises they're delicious!)

    I hope this helps with your planning, and that you and your friends have a wonderful time dining together! Have a magical day - Diane W.
