    With regards to the new 2016 Dining plan...Can I opt out of a drink and dessert for a Quick Service and earn 2 snack credits or just one per meal? And just so I'm clear, 3 snack credits can now be traded for a quick service meal?

    Hi, Emily!

    The Disney Dining Plan can get a bit confusing!  Basically Mickey Mouse wants to make sure you get the most value as possible, so YES, you can exchange a Quick Service Credit for 3 snack items. 

    As far as exchanging items within a meal, you can make some exchanges such as no dessert in lieu of an additional beverage, or a soup instead of a dessert (exchanges based on menu availability). If you opt out of a drink or dessert, you cannot "earn" Snack Credits onto your account. The exchange needs to be made at the time of purchase. If find this "exchange" option particularly beneficial if dining at your resort. Since you will have a refillable mug for a beverage, getting to choose an extra side or snack is a real bonus.

    If you ever have any questions, simply ask the friendly Cast Member when ordering your meal or purchasing snacks. The Cast Members know the plan inside and out and will explain the limitations of exchanges at that particular location.

    I hope you have some great meals on the Disney Dining Plan!

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!
