Buffet dining

    Eric from TX Asked

    Can you share meals at the table service locations or will you be billed on the dining plan for each party member? I am just trying to get a good idea of which plan I will need as I would like to try as many places as I can.

    Dear Eric,

    Thank you so much for reaching out to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question about the Disney Dining Plan.

    I understand wanting to be very careful about how you use your Disney Dining Plan meal credits. At character or buffet meals, or at dinner shows, you will be using a Table-Service credit (or two, depending on the restaurant or dining experience) per PERSON, and there is no sharing of credits. The way that I think of it is that you are paying more for the experience for those meals, so you must use your credits. 

    When you are at a Table-Service restaurant that is not a fixed price but is more of an order per entree type of thing, then you can split a meal if you are not that hungry. If you are splitting a credit, then you will only have one beverage, one entree, and one dessert, of course.

    When it comes to Quick-Service meals, it is super easy to split a meal and just to use one Quick-Service credit for two people if your appetite is not that big for a particular meal. 

    I hope that helps with your magical planning!
