    My Daughter, Husband and two grandchildren are going on their 1st trip to Disney World. Where can the cards be used in the parks, or specifically where can they not be used? Lastly, What is a suggested amount to cover food/beverages/etc for 3 days?

    Hi there, Tina!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    The first trip to Walt Disney World is sure to the best time ever and leave lasting memories! I'm so excited for your family!

    Disney gift cards a the perfect present for anyone visiting this magical place. When my family visits, we are sure to bring along Disney gift cards. While there, the gift cards can be used throughout all of the theme parks, resorts, and Disney Springs. Your daughter, husband, and grandchildren can use them for food, souvenirs, theme park tickets, and anything else their heart desires while they are at Walt Disney World. There's no limit to where the Disney gift cards can be used, while at Disney. 

    Depending on what type food and restaurants your family like to eat, meals can cost anywhere from $15/person to $80 or more/person. Quick service meals are less expensive, while character meals, signature dining, and dinner shows cost closer to the $80/person mark, but some cost a bit less than that. The best way to help budget for food is to sit down with your family and talk about what type of meals they would enjoy while on their Disney vacation. 

    *Pixie Dust Pointer-If your family is staying at of the Walt Disney World resorts, you may want to consider purchasing the dining plan. Guests of the resorts have a choice of 3 dining plans that are purchased in advanced and allows guests the freedom to eat what they desire within their plan and not worry about a budget, as this package has been purchased in advance. If interested, you can add a dining plan to your resort and ticket package by calling 407-939-1947. 

    Tina, I hope that your family has the best time at Walt Disney World! If you have more questions about anything before they leave, please visit with us again!
