    When do we get the meal tickets we purchased in a dining plan?

    You don't! 

    Your dining plan credits will be encoded on the Key to the World card you'll receive upon checking in at your resort.  It is actually a very nice feature because that one card (the size and shape of a credit card) will include your park tickets, dining plan credits, and will also serve as your room key.  If you provide a credit card at check-in you can also add charging privileges on to your Key to the World card. 

    To use the dining plan credits, you'll simply present your server with your Key to the World card at the end of your meal.  He or she will swipe your card through their fancy shmancy electronic reader and your dining credits will be automatically deducted from the balance.  All you have to do is sign the receipt.  You will want to double check after each meal though to ensure that the proper number of credits were charged, just in case.  Don't worry though, we never had any trouble with the process.

    Having to keep track of just that one card will make your vacation easy as pie.  Have a magical time!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
