    You guys are great! Thank you for anwering all my questions! Have another. What would you recommend for spending money for kids? I plan to buy them each a gift card to use. We have the dining plan, so they don't need snack money. What do you think?

    Hi Kellen!
    Thank you so much for all of your questions!
    Gift cards are a great idea! We usually give our kids a set amount of money to spend on our trips. Of course, they have grandparents and other family members to spend more, if you know what I mean. Gift cards with a set amount help children learn to value the things they purchase. So I think you're on the right track by giving them gift cards for their purchases. Just remember to either purchase gift cards with different characters or write their name on it so there's no confusion about which gift card belongs to whom.
    It's very important that you explain that gift cards are considered cash so, if lost, there's nothing you can do. So they have to take good care of their gift card. A great idea is purchasing lanyards. This way the kids can keep their gift cards safely inside ID holders.
    Have a magical vacation!
