Question about appetizers for two!

So as I'm reading the menus I'm seeing a lot of appetizers for two. I am on the deluxe dining plan so myself and my boyfriend both get an appetizer, entree, and dessert. I am wondering if we can each get an "app for two" as our own appetizer, because a lot of them look really awesome! I am just wondering if we can each get an "app for two" as our individual appetizer portion of the meal?!

It really just depends on what restaurant, some do and some make you share. When me and DH went there was many times when we order a for two app and then another app. An example is Kona's sticky wings.

You should not expect to order 2 "Apps for 2". An "App for 2" is meant to be the total app for 2 people. If some servers allow you to order an additional appetizer, it is a bonus. But don't expect to.
Have a Great Trip.

Kona no longer has the wings for 2. It's a single order now

I know that Yak & Yeti, Raglan Road, and Via Napoli do not let you order an appetizer for two plus another appetizer when there are only two people using DxDP credits (unless you're paying OOP for the second appetizer). My experience is that the non-Disney venues are pretty strict about this, while the Disney-owned venues may be more flexible.

well that sucks. i don't even mind not being able to do that i just wish they made an appetizer option for one, because a lot of the apps i like are in the stupid "for two" format!! lol oh well.

Tutto, Via Napoli, Yak & Yeti and Raglan Road are all third party restaurants. They are very strict with the dining plan guidelines because their reimbursement from Disney is based on those guidelines so any app for 2 will require both of your credits.

The first 3 have an "app for 2" but they are sampler platters with at least 3 different items on them. Most of the items can be ordered separately, but I liked getting a sample. Raglan Road has some appetizers described as "It's for sharing" and used to be for one person, but when we went last October our server said it now requires 2 DxDDP credits.

Not apps, but a couple of other things that required both credits was the pressed pot Kona coffee at Kona and the Dessert Sampler at Grand Floridian Cafe.

When we did DxDP, any app that was "for 2" that we ordered counted as the app for both of us. It was really more than enough... you don't realize how huge those meals are until you're there!
