    All of you are GREAT. My ? is, on the 2012 Dining Plan, will the Resorts Food Service Courts still allow you to trade in your Counter Service's for 3 Snack Credits ? I know the last 4 years we have done this at several different resort food courts.Thanks

    Hi, Linda!

    The official rule is that a counter service credit is for a counter service meal, and there is no trading.  However, I know I have heard many people say that they have successfully traded.  Just to experiment, I tried this at the Saratoga Springs food court and was told "no."  I even asked for the manager and still got a big old NO! (That was the only time I ever tried, so perhaps other food courts are more flexible with the rules. For example, at the Polynesian, they let me get salads instead of desserts with my counter service meals.)

    All you can do is ask and see the results.  It sounds like you have had good luck and pixie dust on your side, so hopefully your streak will continue!

    What you can do if you are getting "NO" for an answer is just get counter service meal.  You still technically get 2 "snack" items: You can got a bottled water and a cookie (or any drink and dessert) and pick an entree you can all munch on.  It is not a perfect solution, but you at least get some goodies out of it!

    I hope this helps. I want you to know the actual rules, but know that there may be some flexibility, so give it a try!  Good luck!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
