Free dining - using other people in same rooms credits

Hi there,

Slightly odd one this but would be very grateful for somebodies advice on this.

The current deal in the UK means that if two couples book a two week stay in a two bed villa for 4 people, along with the 14 day (7 free) ultimate ticket they will get free dining for everybody.

If one couple leaves after a week, but the other stay on in the same accommodation for the remaining week, providing nobody tells Disney, is it possible for the remaining couple to use the dining credits left on the departed couples cards?

The only barrier I can think of is if the cards need to be used at the park turnstiles before using them at a restaurant.

Thanks for your help

Assuming the dining plan for UK visitors works the same as US - don't know why it wouldn't but I know ticket options are different - dining credits are actually shared within the room. Conceivably 1 person in the room could eat all the snack credits allowed for everyone. Credits are not specific to any 1 card, just within the same room.

All I can think is you will still be paying the extra adult charge per night. I'm not sure how much that is at the villas.

Enjoy your vacation!

There is no extra adult charge at the villas. The plan would work, but keep in mind you are paying for a 2 bedroom for 2 people for the second week. You may want to look at the price of a 1 bedroom for the second week.

Yeah I thought about that - but am I not right in saying if I change rooms then I need to buy new tickets to keep the free dining plan?

Yes. You would have to buy new tickets for the second reservation.

The dining credits would be available to you as long as you're in the same room. Sometimes we stay longer than the others on our reservation and we've never had a problem using the remaining credits.

Thanks! Seems almost worth keeping the 2 bed villa on to enjoy signature dining every night!
