    Hi, we’re a party of 11 staying in 3 studios at OKW in August. If I purchase deluxe dining can I gift some of the other members of my party table service credits and pay for some meals on the occasions we all eat together and if so, do I need to be present

    Hiya Melanie!

    It sounds like you’ve got a Wreck-It-Ralph sized vacation coming up! A few Christmases ago, we were a party of nine at Walt Disney World Resort, and it was an Incredible trip!

    Disney’s Old Key West Resort is a delightful property filled with quintessential Southern comfort. The hammocks swinging in the breeze hail back to the easy-breezy romance of the Florida Keys. Conch Flats offers you plenty of room for your party, plenty of amenities (from full-sized kitchens to boat transportation to Disney Springs), and plenty of relaxation!

    You are so smart to get the Disney Dining Plan; it is the most convenient way to enjoy your meals during your vacation. Melanie, you are also a great friend, wanting to gift some of your dining credits. Unfortunately, dining credits are non-transferrable, so you cannot “gift” them. You can choose to pay cash and use Dining Plan credits during the same meal though. That way you can use credits for your meal and then order a few extra things for the table with cash. My fellow panelist Jessica has a great tip about using your MagicBand for the whole transaction - MagicBands make dining super easy!

    While you are staying at your Resort, make sure to try the Conch Fritters at Olivia’s Cafe - they are absolutely “apeeling!" If you have any other questions, please swing back by!
