dining plan and multiple families

if we have 2 families on one reservation in a 2 bedroom will they divide up our meal plans so one family does not accidently spend more than their alloted meal entitlements or do they have to be grouped all together? additionally We only want charging priviledges on our cards not on the other families cards so how could we do this when we all are on the dining plan but want to go our own ways for touring sometimes and for meals seperatley

All credits for a room will be on all cards, so you will have to keep track yourself.

You can specify charging privileges for certain room cards and not have them allowed for others.

Have never used the dining plan, but I believe the "pool" of meals / snacks is specific to a card and not counted as part of a larger group.

At least that's what I observe when I am waiting to buy a cup of coffee and I watch a lady frantically juggling room keys at Boardwalk Bakery to get those last "I paid for them!" snacks before boarding ME. LOL.

Unless there have been recent changes, the credits are pooled from all cards for a single room so any one person could spend all credits if they so chose (I know of situations where one person used most credits due to lack of understanding of how the DP works). If they were worrying which card was which they were either doing so for no reason, had multiple rooms so the cards were different plans or added people to the room so their cards didn't work with the DP.

We took another family with us last year, and paid for the dining plan for all of us. All of our credits were available on any of the 7 room cards. Anyone could have used up all of the credits at any time. We explained how the credits worked, and didn't have any trouble keeping everything straight and fair.

We had that situation last summer with one group. I simply made everyone a little card that had the number of TS, CS, and snacks listed. We were there 3 nights, so I had TS listed 3 times, CS 3 times, and SN listed 3 times. When they used something, they crossed it out on the card. It was the size of the KTTW card so they kept it with it...very easy and simple to do.
