One way to stretch your dining budget or Disney Dining Plan credits is by sharing meals, and the best way to do that is to make sure you’re dining at places or ordering entrées that are large enough to share.

Below, check out a list of Disney World restaurants where you can order portions that are big enough that you can split it with somebody else.

Important note: some information below has been impacted by the current health and safety measures in place at Walt Disney World.
Whenever possible, we have been updating posts to provide the most up-to-date information. However, some things (like character meet and greets, FastPass+, the NBA Experience, and the Disney Dining Plan) are currently unavailable. Please check back often for updates.

No, they unfortunately can't be shared at fixed price meals like CRT.

If we are planning to share with our two toddlers, would i still need to make my reservation as a party of 4? Or would I do a party of 2 since we would be ordering 2 dishes?

You need to include everyone in the reservation - they need a head count for the fire marshall. Even infants who cannot yet eat food have to be counted.

Never been to Disney World and going in March 2020. We will have two rooms between our group and was thinking of having one room get the most expensive dining plan and the other no dining plan. One place we plan on going is to a buffet can I for instance use my magic band and use 7 credits (7 people in our group) to pay for everyone in the group, no questions asked?

I have seen some conflicting information online regarding child vs adult quick service credits - are they tracked separately or together? Trying to figure out a rough plan for our vacation and being able to use a child credit to purchase something from the adult menu would make things so much easier!

You said one can share at any Table Service restaurant as long as it's not a buffet or fixed-price menu, does that apply to fine/signature dining as well? Many thanks!
