    Hello, can we use a quick service dining credit at any lounges or poolside bar and grills? Thanks!

    Welcome back to planDisney, Joanna! It looks like you're planning for a summer visit, and some time sipping and snacking poolside is a great way to take a break from the heat of the summer sun! Let's take a deep dive into the Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan so you can make the most of your meals and snacks during your upcoming vacation!

    The Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan is accepted at over 100 locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, including several poolside bar and grill locations such as the Courtyard Pool Bar at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Spyglass Grill at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, and Petals Pool Bar at Disney's Pop Century Resort, to name a few. Availability will differ based on which Disney Resort Collections hotel you have chosen for your stay, but you can do a search online and filter by Quick Service Dining Plan and Resort dining to help see all of your options (49 when I did the same!) Some of these locations may also offer Mobile Ordering through your My Disney Experience mobile app, making poolside dining even more convenient! If you use Mobile Ordering alongside the dining plan, you will see the information about which dining plans are accepted at each location when you go to place your order!

    As for lounges, these locations will only accept table service meals from the Disney Dining Plan, so you will not be able to use your Quick-Service meals at these locations.  

    Joanna, you may also find that you can exchange snack credits for certain items at poolside bar and grills; just look for the purple and white dining plan logo on the posted menu items if this is something you'd like to do! 

    I hope this is helpful and I'm wishing you a wonderful summer vacation at the Most Magical Place on Earth! With so many new summer offerings on the horizon, including the pending opening of Tiana's Bayou Adventure, be sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog in the months leading up to your visit so you'll be ready to experience all of the new magic! And if you have any other vacation planning questions, come on back to planDisney anytime; we're always ready to help!

    See ya real soon,
