    How do I determine the difference between "Quick Service" and "Snack?" Thanks.

    Hi Dee!

    Quick-Service on the Disney Dining Plan refers to the type of restaurant/meal.  A Quick-Service restaurant is one where you order at the counter, pick up your food and take it to your table.  There are no servers at these restaurants.  Quick-Service restaurants are located at every Walt Disney World Resort hotel, theme park and Disney Springs.  You can find a list of eligible Quick-Service restaurants on the Disney Dining Plans Participating Locations guide.  

    When using your Disney Dining Plan for a Quick-Service meal, you are eligible for one entree and a non-alcoholic beverage per Guest.  I like to get the most value out of my Disney Dining Plan, so I tend to choose the most expensive meals when redeeming my Quick-Service credits.  One of my favorite entrees is the Fajita Platter at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe at Disney's Magic Kingdom.  There is usually enough food on the platter to split with my husband, so we can save a Quick-Service meal credit for later.

    A snack on the Disney Dining Plan is a single serving food item.  You can find these items marked with their own icon found on the second page of the Disney Dining Plan guide.  These can be items such as beverages, fruit, ice cream, slushies or even a side of fries.  Quick-Service restaurants have snack options on their menus as well as food carts and other walk-up food locations.

    Have a magical day!
