I swear I read the answer to this somewhere, but now I can’t seem to find it. In February, my family will be at WDW for 8 days. Our family has gotten the dining plan. For a couple days at the beginning of our trip and a couple days at the end of our trip, additional people will be joining us. If we all dine together, is it possible to use dining credits for my family and have the other members of the party pay out of pocket? Or does everyone at the table have to use the dining plan? TIA!
Yes, your family can use the DDP and the others can pay out of pocket. Just let the server know when he/she first comes to the table.
You’ll want to double-check the receipt to make sure it’s divided up the way you asked - it can get confusing.
