    Staying at WL this summer and want to give my 16yr old son the option of charging (food, beverages) to the room if he's not with us to pay. Is this possible or does he need to be 18? So addicted to this site! You gals & guy are the best for planning

    You can add charging privileges to the Key to the World card of anyone in your traveling party, including children. On our last trip to WDW, we gave charging privileges to our 11 year old daughter. This was helpful because it allowed her to go get herself a lemonade at the pool snack bar without us needing to go with her.

    When you check into your resort, you will be asked if you want to add charging rights to your Key cards. You can specify any or all members of your group that you want to allow to charge. You will also be asked to select a charging cap. The charging cap is PER ROOM, not per person. I believe the current default cap is $1,500. (You can always set the cap higher or lower if that works better for you. You can also raise your cap during your vacation) I only mention this because you want to make sure that anyone you give charging privileges to will be exercising good judgement about spending. Because once your Key cards are activated for charging, you probably won't hear that there's a problem until your charging cap is reached and your resort calls to ask you if you want to allow more charging.

    Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any additional questions.
