    Hi Cathy! My husband and I are also both graduates of John Carroll University! :-) Question: We are going in July and are on the DxDP. Even though it's all table service, can we use them for quick service meals too if we want?

    Hi, Yvette!

    It is great to hear from a fellow Blue Streak!  I think you are the first guest I have heard from that also attended John Carroll - Class of '91 for me!  Maybe we can plan the next Reunion Weekend in Walt Disney World...wouldn't that be fun?

    But back to your question!  Get ready to EAT because on the Deluxe Dining Plan, you get a lot of food.  Each person per night will get 3 meals, 2 snacks, plus you will each receive a resort refillable mug.  You are welcome to use those meals at quick service, table service, buffets, family style dining, whatever you wish!  Just remember a few things:  Make sure to make your Advance Dining Reservations to get the most out of your plan.  You have a lot of meals, so you want to make sure to enjoy as many restaurants as possible.   Also, with so many meal credits, this is a great time to try the Signature Restaurants that use 2 Credits per meal.  We enjoy Jiko, California Grill, or my very favorite, Yachtsman Steakhouse. 

    I would plan on some early morning character buffets, quick service lunches, and leisurely dinners.  Feel free to mix it up however you want though, as your meal credits can be used however you wish from the time you check-in until midnight of the day you check-out. 

    Best of luck while planning your magical vacation, and let me know if I can help with anything else!  I'm always happy to help out John Carroll grads who love Disney - what a perfect combination!
