    1 more ?! Coming in 10 days, staying at ASMovies w/FREE QS dining. Can we pay to upgrade to the regular dining plan? Not sure if this would be a good value since we are doing 2 char. dinners and they would use 2 dining credits. Opinions?

    Hi Steven!

         10 more days - you must be seing "Hidden Mickey's" everywhere you look!  You may absolutely upgrade from the FREE Quick Service Dining Plan to the basic plan.  However, you must do it at least 72 hours before you arrive.  It will cost you about $17 per adult per night to upgrade to the basic plan - totally worth it!!! 

          If you want to do the math yourself, I suggest visiting a site such as and check out the menus.  The menus are typically updated with the most recent cost to visit each buffet.  I'll bet my bottom dollar that upgrading to the basic Disney Dining Plan will save you a bundle.  Have a wonderful vacation and keep those questions coming!

    Much pixie dust,
