Can you use dining plan and TIW card together?

Wondering if these can be used together to cover apps or additional items that are not covered by the dining plan? Also will we need to buy two separate TIW cards since my family and my mom and dad are going and the checks will be split between us?

Yes you can use TIW to cover anything that is not included with your dining plan credits.

You can use a single TIW card for up to 10 people on the same bill.

You can use your TiW card to cover guests dining with you. Technically, you (the TiW card holder) must be the one to pay and it cannot be applied to split checks (i.e., one card, two bills at the same table at the same time). So as long as you can square up with them after the meal, you can use your card to cover their meals and they wouldn't have to purchase their own TiW card.

Here is what will happen when you are in restaurants:

You'll get one bill for your party's dining plan expenditures.
Your parents will get a separate bill for their dining plan expenditures. (This is assuming that your parents are also on the dining plan.)
You will get one single bill for anything your entire table purchases off-plan.

If you plan on splitting the off-plan bill into one bill for you and one for your parents, then both you and your parents will need a TIW card. If you plan on just paying that bill and splitting the cost later, then you only need the one TIW card. This is according to the TIW website, which does state that the TIW member must pay the bill and that all discounted items must be on the same bill.

Do your parents also have APs or are DVC members or FL residents? They will need that to buy the TIW card. And you can't give them your card to pay. It has to have their name on the TIW card.

The extra card will run you an additional $50. Personally i would just figure out the split later, but do what works best for you.

I'm pretty sure to get the $50 card you have to be in the same household. So his parents card will cost them $100 extra. Unless they go all the time I don't see how this would save them any money, a drink here and an appetizer there its going to cut it. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong in my thinking

I think you are correct. The breakeven point for the $100 card is $500 in purchases. I'd pay the bill with one card and settle the money later.

Another thing to note is that the server will check the name on the card against the name of the person submitting the card. So your parents would not be able to use your card unless you are with them. You couldn't give them your card to use at a meal for which you are not present.

We just got back, and one of the things I did, was that with adult beverages, if I didn't really have any with dinner, or had one and knew I wanted to drink later in the park, you can ask for a to-go cup and order your drink during dinner. This way you can save the 20% on the drink right on your dinner bill.

Smile tiw use

we usually use the ddp or dxdp. we enjoy the signature restaurants and i wonder if the tiw would be useful if we use ddp and tiw when going to the signature restaurants? or would it be better to just use the dxdp?

Ok we might just do one card then and we are using the TIW card to pay for one meal a day OOP, so it will come in handy to have for this TS meals that the DP doesn't cover....
