    Heading to WDW in nov have deluxe dining plan. I don't want to carry a lot of cash can I charge the gratuities for servers to my key to world card?

    Hi there Angela,

    You sound just like me!  I am a HUGE fan of the Deluxe Dining Plan and I also don't like carrying cash into the parks!  This is where the magical "Key to the World" card comes in handy!  Your Key to the World card is a plastic card that will conveniently serve as your room key, park ticket, dining plan, and room charge... so there's no need to bring cash along if you choose not to.

    When you receive your bill at a restaurant, let the server know you'll be using your Dining Plan to pay, but wish to charge gratuity to the room.  The bill you receive will look just like any normal restaurant bill and will have the total of your meal with a suggested gratuity amount.  Just fill in the amount you wish to leave, sign, and place your Key to the World card in the folder.  

    The meal amount will be deducted from your Dining Plan entitlements and the gratuity will be charged to your room account!  It's so easy it's like MAGIC!

    Best Wishes,

    Amanda F.
