You will be able to pay for them separately but you both must have the same dining plan package and you both must get one.

You can call and pay for yours ahead of time or when you check in, do it together, you can pay so much on this card or with cash and so on.

I am assuming that you are all in one room...
The only thing that might be a little tricky is that your room keys normally have your dining plan on them.. on each of them so you will have to keep track of who has what left.

We have done this and it was not problem. I actually collected their money and paid prior to check in for all of us. They had a few reservations separate from us and we had some together. Worked out fine.

Thank you! Yes we are all staying in a 2 bedroom villa at AKV so we are on the same reservation and we are all eating in the same places. But paying separate for everything.

If you are staying as DVC, make sure you know the breakdown of what each family should pay. We just got back from a split stay at AKV and BLT. At AKV, we had no problem with MIL charging her own Dining plan. At BLT, we had to tell the CM the ammount to charge. Not a real problem, but just be prepared. Since we were in one villia, it was very easy when the bill for the meals came to hand one card. We put the tips on the card so we had a record to split at the end of the trip. At AKV, they told us we could go down the last night to have MIL's card charged for any amount we wanted.
