    Can I order a snack or side in place of my beverage at a counter service restaurant if I'm using a quick service credit from my dining plan?

    Hi Patricia!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    The Disney Dining Plan is something I enjoy using every time I visit Walt Disney World Resort, and I love the flexibility and convenience it offers across Walt Disney World Resort - at the theme parks, the Disney Resort hotels and select locations at Disney Springs.  It is entirely up to each individual Guest how they use their own entitlements, maybe using more on one day and less on another.  With your Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan you will receive, per Guest, per night of stay, 2 Quick-Service credits, 2 Snacks and a refillable drink mug which can be used for unlimited refills of select fountain drinks, and hot drinks such as tea, coffee and hot chocolate, at the beverage stations at any of the Disney Resort hotels.  As you know, one Quick-Service credit provides an entree and a drink at a Quick-Service restaurant.  In my experience, it's always worth asking if you can substitute one item for another.  It will be down to the discretion of the location, but it could be possible.  

    if you find you still have some Quick-Service entitlements left at the end of your stay, I would suggest visiting your Quick-Service location, or retail location within your Disney Resort hotel and ask if they will convert each Quick-Service credit to 3 Snack credits.  You could pick up a few items for your journey home, or to take home as gifts! Unfortunately there is currently not a precise list of locations where you can convert dining credits to snacks, but again, it's always worth asking at each individual facility.

    The Disney Dining Plans may be used from time of check-in at your Resort hotel (if you use online check-in, your Dining Plan can be used from 7.00am on your arrival day), until midnight on your day of departure.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort, and for all the latest official news and updates on events happening during your trip, keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog.
