    I'm going to Disney with family and inlaws... My family and I are staying at a Disney Villa, and will be purchasing the DDP. My inlaws are not staying at Disney. When I make reservations for dinner, will I be able to include my inlaws along with my reservation, on the days that we're all eating together? Or do they need to book a seperate reservation being they are not on the DDP??...

    Hi John,

    When you make your reservations you can make them for your entire party as one reservation. When you are seated your server can be advised that your party wants to pay separately. Even if you forget and your server doesnt ask, at the end of the meal you can always ask for separate bills. Good servers ask up front and explain that on DDP their are some restrictions like alcohol, and some appetizers are meant to split between two people or are not included on depending on the DDP you choose. Your inlaws can pay with the credit card or cash for their meals. Remember that some restaurants for the DDP are taking 2 table services. May you have a wonderful trip. Bon Appetite☺

    Yes you can make your ressies for everyone.

    My good friend always meets us one night at Ohana, as she lives down in Florida.
    Never an issue with the bill or anything. Just as PP said, the server will usually ask at the begining and you just them him/her then.

    Very easy.

    Just remember if your party is over 6 (I think) there is an automatic 18% gratuity added.
    If you are on seperate checks that will also be on them.

    Enjoy your trip!
