    Can I convert counter service meals to sitdown during my vacation?

    Hi Nancy!

    Welcome back to planDisney!  Thanks for stopping by so we can dish about one of my favorite topics - Disney dining!

    Nancy, both the Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan and the Disney Dining Plan offer flexibility as well as convenience during your vacation.  Depending on which plan you have selected, you'll receive a certain number of Quick-Service meals per night of your stay.  Unfortunately, these Quick-Service meals cannot be exchanged for Table-Service meals during your vacation.  If you have purchased the Quick-Service plan and would like to upgrade to the Disney Dining Plan, you may be able to make that change before your arrival.  In your My Disney Experience account, you can view your current plans and see if you can modify your dining plan selection online.  If you don't see the option to do so, you can reach out to Cast Member by calling Disney Resort Hotel Reservations to see if that option is available and what the cost may be to make this change.  

    Before I go, I wanted to share two of my favorite Quick-Service dining locations.  In Magic Kingdom Park, I like to visit Columbia Harbour House.  With items such as lobster rolls, shrimp, and salmon, the menu is much more diverse than what you typically think of when theme park food comes to mind.  Once you have picked up your order, I recommend heading upstairs to eat.  It's often a much quieter spot and allows for a chance to rest and enjoy your meal away from the usual hustle and bustle!  Over at Disney's Hollywood Studios, my favorite spot is Docking Bay 7 Food & Cargo.  Not only is this food a hit no matter what galaxy you're from, but the dining space inside the restaurant really makes you feel like you're enjoying your meal on another planet!  At both of these locations, I like to use Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering to save time.  Less time in line means more time to enjoy my favorite rides and attractions!  

    Nancy, I hope you have a wonderful visit to Walt Disney World Resort!  Remember, you are always welcome to be our guest here at planDisney and we hope to see you again real soon!

    Bon Appetit!
