My brother made a reservation for his family of three, and my family of four for BOG breakfast in September, and we are all on the Disney Dining Plan in two rooms. We would prefer to order our food online in advance, but are confused as to the “no split checks” statement online and the other “readings” I have seen about not being able to divide the seven meals across two families’ credits. The Disney Dining phone number has been absolutely no help, so my question to you guys is - can my brother pre-order all 7 meals, and then once we arrive we pay separately from the two families?
No. But you could have your brother use his credits, and ‘pay him back’ by using your credits to buy meals for his family. Or vice versa.
I would have suggested getting 2 separate reservations and just sitting together, but at this short notice I doubt you’d get it. You could try though.
