    We are visiting the Disney parks soon and have the dining plan ,what do I do if we don't use all the quick service meals or the snack

    Hello Barbara!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Whenever my family travels to Walt Disney World Resort with plans on utilizing the Disney Dining Plan, we ensure that we have a solid plan for all of our meals during our stay.

    Unfortunately, any credits that are not redeemed during your Walt Disney World Resort vacation will expire and cannot be transferred or used for anything else. You must redeem your Disney Dining Plan credits by 11:59pm on the day that you Check-Out of your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.

    As far as Snack Credits are concerned, my family usually stocks up on goodies that we can take home for gifts for family and friends or for personal snacking on the flight home. While it may be a sad trip on Disney's Magical Express back to Orlando International Airport on Check-Out day, I can always drown my sorrows in some caramel popcorn from Karamell-Küche in the Germany Pavilion.

    For Quick-Service Credits, I recommend that you plan your meals well enough to redeem them at the many Quick-Service Dining locations throughout Walt Disney World Resort. If you simply cannot redeem your credits, many Dining Locations will redeem Quick-Service Credits for Snacks (caramel popcorn, Karamell-Küche, seriously!).

    It's not the most valuable use of a credit, but it's better than not using them at all.

    Bon Appétit!
