Dining Plan - splitting a meal?

We are getting ready to leave for our first trip. As we have been losing wait to prepare for the big trip we find ourselves less hungry than usual... Is it possible to share/split a table service meal with my wife if we are simply not hungry enough for two meals?

We hate to waist food (knowing we can't pack it up since we are staying in the park). Thanks for helping us prep for the trip of a lifetime.

If you are on the dining plan or at a buffet/family style, then no. Otherwise yes.

We split meals all the time. If we didn't, I'd never get dessert. I'm always too full if I eat a whole meal myself.

You can split at many places even on the dining plan. Buffet or family style, then no splitting whichever way you pay. Some other places don't allow sharing on DDP, but most do as long as the person is on your reservation (like spouse or child)

So any meal we are on dining plan we cannot split? Just making certain I understand. Not splitting buffet makes sense

At most places they'll let you share a meal (one credit to feed two people). However, you cannot share at buffets, all-you-care to eat/family style (e.g., skillet at WCC), pre-plated meals (e.g., CRT), and dinner shows (e.g., HDDR). You also cannot share and get the Fantasmic dining package for both people. Finally, Via Napoli is very strict and does not allow sharing on the DDP (you cannot order one pizza to feed two people when using the DDP).

(At pre-plated places and even at VN, when both people order their own entrees, you are welcome to share. For example, person 1 orders pizza A and person 2 orders pizza B; person 1 is welcome to try pizza B and person 2 can try pizza B. The key is that each person on the DDP ordered their own pizza and 2 credits will be charged for the meal.)

I understand not wanting to waste food. Are you sure you have enough meals to use all your TS credits while sharing? Have you already added the DDP to your trip? You might do better paying OOP.

Thanks for asking. We have added it already and most of he table services are going to use at (2x) character meals or shows with our young daughters. We will have a few table service meals that we are paying OOP and 2 regular table service ( that we may extend into another dinner if we didn't each have to over eat individual dinners)

Thanks again
