Dining Plan...how it works questions...

Hi, we got the dining plan free for booking (1TS, 1 QS & 1 Snack) I've booked most TS. But I was looking at what's included (drink, entree, dessert) and I was wondering...

1. We aren't huge eaters (like more frequent meals with much smaller portions) so what if we are too full for dessert? Do we lose that opportunity or can we use it for a snack later?

2.Also if we don't use a QS or TS credit, can it be exchanged for something else? Additional snacks?

Hi honeymooner!

The Dining Plan isn't really very flexible. You will "lose" your dessert if you opt out at meal time. The server won't mind boxing it up to go if you like. QS and TS credits can't usually be exchanged for another type of credit.

Many CS places will have pre-packaged goodies, like cookies, which you can take with you for later.

You should be able to use a TS credit for CS if that's what you have left, but not a CS for TS. (The resort food courts are especially good about this exchange.)

Here's how we did the dining plan on our last trip.

We used snack credits for milk and cereal for breakfast. We got a soda and water at lunch-split the soda and took the water in our bag for later. The dessert for lunch we used as an afternoon snack-tried to do fruit. At dinner, you can like the previous poster said, take your dessert with you for a late evening snack. Hope this helps!
