    Do you suggest a lot of bathing suits or do you feel this being the kids first time that we will not be swimming much? If we do not use meal plan on one day can it be used on another day?

    Hello again, Marnie!

    Great questions!

    Regarding bathing suits, we always bring 2 per person, as we never know when we can steal an hour or so for the pool at the resort. (It's nice to have one that's dry if the other is still damp from prior use.)

    Regarding your meal plan, it's really very flexible. All of your entitlements (Table Service, Quick Service and snack) are pooled together on your Key to the World Cards, and can be used however and whenever you'd like until midnight after your resort check-out. This means that if you have a Table Service entitlement you just can't squeeze in that first day (we often can't be bothered with skipping park time that first day) you can easily use it on the last day, prior to your departure. In addition, if you decide to book a Signature Dining experience which uses 2 Table Service entitlements per person, you'll be able to do so if you have that unused entitlement from your first night of stay.

    I see from your earlier questions that you'll be at your resort for 5 nights. This means that your family of five will be given 25 snack credits, 25 Quick Service credits and 25 Table Service credits immediately upon arrival, all of which are accessible via your Key to the World Cards. Use them however you'd like prior to midnight on the day you check out; it's that simple!

    Send more questions as you think of them, Marnie! I am so excited for your family's first vacation to Walt Disney World!
