Never used the DDP before. We have 7 members in our group spread out over 3 rooms. All 3 are booked under the same 1 person organizing. A couple of questions:

1) Would all of our Disney dining meals show up on all of our magic bands? ex 7 adults over 7 days = 49 meals table service credits OR would it show as meals per room?
and on the same line....

All of us have the regular plan on the DDP but if just one room did the deluxe plan, would all the meals show so everyone could share in the extra meals?

It is per room but we were allowed to use up all the credits on one room then move onto the 2nd room we only had one server who made us use the 3 credits from one room and one from the other band (we were all on the same plan 3 people in 2 rooms both rooms had deluxe plan and mostly ate together but not always the only issue was at Tusker House breakfast and enough people since then have had no issue I think we just got a server on a bad day)

Each room would get it's own separate plan. So Bob and Sue in Room 100 would only see the credits for their room on their band. Pete and Ginger in room 101, would see their's, and so on.

All of us have the regular plan on the DDP but if just one room did the deluxe plan, would all the meals show so everyone could share in the extra meals?

Only the people in the room that had the DxDP assigned to it would have visibility and use of the credits. That said, if Bob and Sue and the DxDP on their room and too the remaining guests in different rooms out to dinner, Bob and Sue could pay for their meals with the DxDP. If the guests in the other two rooms went off on their own, they could not use the DxDP unless Bob or Sue wanted to loan out their Magic Band for an evening (couldn't do this in the parks).

Each room gets the meals, per person per day.... all the meal show up on each of the members of the room magic bands...

With being able to share credits, it opens up new options to explore....

We did this about a month ago. It was actually cheaper for us to upgrade one room to deluxe compared to getting standard dining for both.

It can get hectic tracking to make sure the paying member is always from the dining room (oops!) but if done properly then you get to use the meals wherever whenever. The disadvantage is less snacks if you’re going during Food and Wine.

One other thing we found, when using quick service, they always pull from the “kids” TS. Not sure if that was intentional or not. Although realistically we didn’t notice any distinction otherwise, a CM did show us that the PoS does distinguish who is and isn’t on the dining plan. So try not to abuse the kids TS for adults.
