    I am considering adding the Dining Plan to an upcoming Festival of the Arts trip. I have heard that a Quick Service meal may be converted for use at the booths. How does that work, and if exchanged, would the exchange need to be all at the same booth? TY!

    Welcome to planDisney, Andrea! I'm so glad to be able to answer your question today. I am a huge fan of the Disney Dining Plan and the freedom it gives my family when we're on vacation. We love using snack credits to enjoy our favorites and try new things, and being able to try new restaurants because we have a table-service meal credit for each night of our stay! Let's chat about using the Disney Dining Plan during the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts next year and how to get the most out of your meal credits.

    Andrea, it sounds like you know that snack credits can typically be used at Festival booths to enjoy the exciting food on offer during those special events. It's actually my favorite way to use a snack credit! With the return of the Disney Dining Plan in 2024, quick-service meal credits cannot be broken down into snack credits, so if you want to use your snack credits at the Festival, you might want to plan in advance how you're going to do that. Your Disney Dining Plan credits are made available to you all at once at the beginning of your trip, so you can use them at your discretion at any time. For example, you can use multiple snack credits at the Festival and choose to forgo snacks on another day when you've got a great Table-Service meal planned. That's part of the flexibility that I really love about the Disney Dining Plan!

    I hope this answers your question, Andrea, and please let us know if you have more questions about the Disney Dining Plan or any other aspect of planning your upcoming vacation!
