    on the disney deluxe dining plan it says next to desserts "*Ask your server about potential substitutions, but substitutions are not guaranteed" what do they mean by substitutions?

    Greetings Ann Marie!

    We are thrilled to welcome you back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    The absolute best way to turn your vacation into an all-inclusive experience is by adding a Disney Dining Plan to your vacation package. It is absolutely magical to arrive at the place where dreams come true knowing all your meals are taken care of. I especially like the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan because you can choose to use your meal entitlements either at quick-service or table-service locations. My family enjoys table-service meals and we love exploring all the amazing dining locations available for Guests at all four theme parks, Disney Resort hotels, and Disney Springs.

    When you dine using a Disney Dining Plan, you have the option of substituting a dessert for an appetizer at table-service locations. Although these substitutions are not guaranteed, you can always check with your server before placing your order. This is especially relevant for Guests who, like me, prefer to have an appetizer before a meal instead of dessert at the end. I personally prefer to use snack entitlements for tasty and sweet treats while touring the theme parks. My favorite snacks are the iconic Dole Whip and Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bars. Dole Whips can be found at Aloha Isle and Pineapple Lanai, and you will spot ice creams bars being sold at carts throughout the parks.

    Thank you for stopping by once again. I hope this helps you while planning magical dining adventures!

    Best Disney wishes,
