    Can I purchase a Quick Service Dining Plan for my 2 teens and a Disney Dining Plan for my husband and me if we are in the same room? My husband & I love the table service at WDW, but the kids would rather eat on the fly in the parks. Thanks!

    Hi Jennifer!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    The Disney Dining Plan is something I enjoy using every time I visit Walt Disney World, 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.  Currently, everyone under the same Resort reservation must also have the same Disney Dining Plan.  However, there could be a few options of how you use the plan differently within your family.  Firstly, you can have different dining reservations, so although you have the same dining plan, your actual dining options can be completely different.   Also, in some instances you can convert a Table-Service entitlement to a Quick-Service credit.  This is always at each individual restaurant's discretion, and one Table-Service credit would be in exchange for one Quick-Service meal. You would need to ask at each location if they would do this, but it is quite possible, and if they will permit this exchange they can arrange this for you at the time of purchasing your Quick-Service meal. In the same way, if the restaurant or facility will allow a conversion to three Snack credits, they will do this for you at the time of purchase.  So if your teens would prefer to eat around the parks, this could be possible, if the restaurants will allow it.

    If you find you still have some Table-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 your Table-Service credits to Snack credits.  You could pick up a few items for your journey home, or to take home as gifts!

    The Dining Plans are available to use from time of check-in at your Resort hotel (if you check-in online, your Dining Plan can be used from 7.00am on your arrival day), until midnight on your day of departure, and 
    please remember that Table-Service dining reservations are recommended, and can be made up to 180 days in advance, either online, or by using the My Disney Experience mobile app.  

    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, and for all the latest official news and updates on events happening during your trip, keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog.
