    We have the Disney Dining Plan for our trip in March. I heard it was possible to exchange a quick service meal for 3 snacks. Is this still true?

    Hi Alaine!
    Your Walt Disney World vacation is just around the corner, how exciting is that!?  My family loves using Disney's Dining Plan, we are big foodies in our house and love sampling all of the wonderful culinary delights when visiting.  Unfortunately, exchanging credits on the dining plan is something that is against Disney's policy.  However, I have been able to use Quick Service credits and break them down into several snacks it just takes a little strategy in order to do this.  For example, when dining at your Disney Resort's food court area you are allowed 1 drink, 1 Meal, and 1 dessert per a quick service credit.  A lot of times I will save the dessert, which can consist of numerous things,or one of the sides to keep in the refrigerator at my resort.  This is perfect for those times later in the evening when you get a case of the "midnight munchies."  
    If you are thinking about doing more snacking during you vacation, perhaps the Quick Service Dining Plan might be a better option.  The Quick Service Dining Plan allows 2 Quick Service credits and 2 Snack credits per person/per night of your stay.  It also includes the refillable mug that can be used at your Disney Resort.  This is a great plan and slightly less expensive than the Regular Dining Plan, it is perfect for guests who don't want to spend valuable park time eating at sit down restaurants.  Thank you for visiting us here at The Mom's Panel and we are always happy to answer any questions you may have!

    Have a Magical Vacation!
