I am just now back having used the new DVC dining plan. It worked fine except some of the cart people were not used to what the card says "DVC MBR/Dine". Some were unsure if this was the same dining plan. Luckly, a more experienced CM was usually around and told them that it was the same. I was surprised to find that before I purchased something the CM would look at the card to see if it said dining plan. He or she would then tell me what was on the plan or wasn't.
