Can you split a QS credit into snacks? If so, how many? I know about doubling TS credits for some places so I thought if they can be doubled, maybe they can be split. TIA!!
Nope, sorry, they won't do that :-)

I wish they did stuff like that. We rarely use out snack options and would rather do the opposite of that and pool them together to make another QS meal option.

I think Tiffany needs a vacation from helping others with their vacation plans.

Okay, I read through the first post with all the dining info (much appreciated btw). At this point, I would just like someone to check my math and make sure I have this right. We are booked Dec 11-15th 2011 at Pop Century. We went with the free QSDP but at this point I'm beginning to think about upgrading to the regular DDP. If I read correctly, the upgrade would cost us $11 per adult for each night. So, that's $22 x 4 nights = $88. So, for approximately $88 we could upgrade to the regular plan?? If someone can please confirm this for me, I just may be on the phone with Disney Reservations again in the morning

ETA: Also, if I make ADR's while we don't have the regular dining plan, do I have to go back in and make ADR's again once we add it or will they automatically be covered by the dining plan when we upgrade?

Thanks for the great info spelled out so clearly. I wish our local AAA office would visit this board. This morning I had my wife call to set up a package for Feb 4 - 11, 2012 only to be told by the TA that we'd only get FD on the first night of our trip since Feb 5 - 11 is blacked out!

My wife called Disney to confirm that we would in fact receive FD for the entire stay since we are checking in on Feb 4.

Talking Free Dining in 2012

Last year, I think there was Free Dining around May 27 through June 2 or something like that. Has anyone heard of something around that time in 2012?

What?!! You don't use your snacks? Get something, water, pkg of chips, anything!! But don't just waste them. They are for you to use. I can't imagine not using up every last snack option. You can always get water for the trip home. Mickey bars, lollipops, pieces of fruit, soft drinks in the park, whatever, but there are so many selections. Bottle drinks or milk for the room...the list goes on and on.

Yes, your pricing is right to upgrade. You do not have to cancel and re-book anything if you change your dining plan - just adding on additional ones is fine!
