    I’ve read that we can convert quick dining meal credits into 3 snack credits. What if we have a 9 year old on the kids dining plan? Can you convert a child’s meal the same way?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Angela!

    My husband and I are planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort in a few months, and we are getting so excited about all the delicious things we are going to eat! My family loves being on the Disney Dining Plan, because pre-paying makes the vacation feel all-inclusive, and it’s so relaxing knowing that our dining is paid for and we can order whatever sounds good on the menu. Plus, two snack entitlements each per day means we can stuff our faces with our favorite snacks (oh hey, Dole Whip) and try some of the new treats that seem to pop up every day around the resort. Okay, I’m drooling over here.

    Angela, you’re correct that you should be able to convert a Quick-Service dining plan entitlement to three Snack entitlements, and that does apply to your 9-year-old’s Quick-Service entitlements too. There are a few things to know about converting dining entitlements, though. First of all, the conversion must take place all at the same location at the same time – so, for example, you could convert a Quick-Service entitlement to three Disney Dining Plan eligible treats at the Main Street Confectionery in Magic Kingdom Park, but it has to all happen in the same transaction. (I see lots of Guests doing this on their departure day, and I smile thinking about all the teachers, neighbors, and friends who are about to receive Mickey-shaped treats!) Another great place to convert a Quick-Service entitlement to three snacks is at a booth at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, which will be going on during your visit. Just note that the same rule applies – you must redeem all three snacks at one booth. The other thing to keep in mind is that the conversion is at the discretion of the Cast Member at the register.

    I see you’ll be visiting during the holiday season, and I know you are going to have so much festive fun. The holiday magic around the theme parks, resorts, and Disney Springs truly makes it the most wonderful time of the year for a Disney visit, and that also means there will be lots of tasty holiday treat and snack options coming soon. Be sure to read the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest news, and so you can make your snack list and check it twice (or 50,000 times like me). Enjoy!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
