    Me again Jodie, with the Key To The World, & DDP, how do we use them to pay for meals etc? Do both me & DH have to use our own card so that the points are deducted from each one or can we have just one card with both of our DDP credits on it?

    It's great to hEAR from you again, Barbara!  That's a great question!  My family has purchased the Disney Dining Plan on several vacations and find it to be very user friendly! Both you and your husband will be given a Key to the World Card at check-in with all of your dining entitlements loaded on both cards. After each redemption, you will receive a receipt with your remaining balance.  For example, for two guests staying three nights on the Disney Dining Plan, your initial receipt before any redemptions would indicate that you have six table-service meals, six quick-service meals, and six snack entitlements. All of the dining entitlements are added together for your travel party and regardless of who redeems each, they will be deducted from the entire party after each transaction. Based on my own personal experience, we have only had to show one Key to the World Card at restaurants and just merely told the cast member (waiter) how many meals we were deducting from our Disney Dining Plan. With that being said, I have also used my Key to the World Card at one snack cart while my husband was using his at a quick-service location simultaneously. Think of the DIsney Dining Plan as a debit card. You will be given all of your dining entitlements up front for your entire travel party and they can be deducted as you wish. I hope this information helps.  Please feel free to write me back if you have any additional questions regarding the Disney Dining Plan or your upcoming vacation. Best wishes for a Magical trip, Barbara!
    Happy Planning,
    Jodie
