ME TOO!! Never had to pay for dining. Wait, im lying, just remembered there was this ONE time I paid for it. But thats it. Just once. I always book trips around free dining. Its a much better deal for us than the room discount.

OP, I dont understand how you end up with that many credits leftover. Your family must have TINY appetites.

Just so you know, for all your leftover CS credits, you can convert them to snacks. You can get 3 snacks for 1 CS credit! Every resort food court I have stayed at has allowed this. Its too bad those credits went to waste.

This is a typical offer...for residents of Great Britain.

Canadians are offered free dining the same as US guests are (which is to say they have not been offered any free dining, absent PIN codes or bouncebacks, for 2013 yet.) There was also one offer last year specifically for Canadian guests.

We were left with so many QS credits simply because we couldn't eat 4 QS meals at lunchtime, therefore not using 1 or 2 daily (which mounts up over an 18 day stay!!). We also were out of Disney for 4/5 days, therefore not using a further 4 QS at lunchtime (x 4/5 days). Now can you see how we had a ton left With having a TS meal for dinner every night, we couldn't use any spare QS then. We typically don't really eat breakfasts so couldn't use a QS then either!

We tried to convert our QS into snacks in the resort but cashiers said it couldn't be done, I tried though.

Anyway, we piled 23 lots of sweets into our basket and the cashier immediately commented that we must be using up our snack credits before we left They must be able to spot us Brits a mile away, trying to use up all those credits.... The sweets have made perfect little gifts for school chums and kids in our family. We still had 11 CS credits left though, just could not use them up

cm's can definitely spot us- early on in our holiday, we got a couple of drinks for snacks (shock/horror!) and the cm and her colleague couldn't get over the fact we had over 100 snack credits, they had quite a discussion over it!

funny story-my dd and i were waiting for ds and dh one day at dhs. a lady came up to us and asked if we were having a good time and how we were managing the weather with coming from england?!
i smiled and said we were fine, but we were intrigued how she knew where we were from as we weren't talking loudly at all. however, we soon discovered, as she quickly followed with,' i knew you were english because of your skin tone, i' ve never seen folk so pale!' we were most amused and couldn't wait to share with the boys. the best part of this little tale, we were on day 12-and for our 'skin tone' we were tanned.

with only fairly recently becoming acquainted with the dis, i was totally unaware we could use up snack credits at the end of our stays.

it was never mentioned at check out.

so,the previous 3 trips with dining plans- we left without using up sc at all.

in august,it was the first time a cm commented on our balance, but never offered the option to use cs credits for snacks also. it seems it's rather hit and miss.

foodwise on holiday- occasionally, dh and kids have cooked breakfast at the foodcourt,i don't like cooked breakfast- but most days we start with cereal, toast, bagels, fruit and cereal bars. that's 4 credits not used most days.

we don't eat hot meals for both lunch and dinner, it's usually lunch- and dinner is light back in the townhouse.

We love our snack left overs when we go. We usally book when free dining is available (which BTW I'm canadian and we do get such offer) upgrade to Deluxe, we eat were we want and most often then none have too many snacks whic hwe pack cereal bars and so on to bring home to school friends and family. They love it when we travel to see the mouse.

We are already dreaming of our next trip already although we have been back for only 3 months. We booked a free dining bounceback for next year and looking forward to it.

This past August we were offered to trade 1 cs for 1 snack at POR. Apparently they don't do the 1 cs + 3snacks anymore there.

EXCUSE ME??? You've gotta be joking! ONE CS credit for ONE snack??? That has to be a mistake. Its gotta be! im guessing the employee wasnt informed or something. Come on, one snack can be as little as $1 and as high as $5. A QS meal can be $10 and up. And they think its ok to swap a QS credit for a snack?????

A few years ago I was down there with a fellow DISer. We were both on the DDP (paid, not free dining). She was leaving the day before me, so her last day we tried to trade her extra CS credits in at Starring Rolls for snack credits to use for their cupcakes. They would not let her and told her that she'd have to go to our resort where guest services could trade CS credits into snack credits, but they weren't sure how many she'd get for each CS credit. When we went to guest services at CSR the CM told us they could not do it, but to try in Cafe Rix there in the resort. The CM at Cafe Rix told my friend that it would be a one for one exchange. We told her that we'd heard it was three snack credits for one CS credit. She double checked with another CM, but came back to say she had been right and it would be a one for one exchange. I hated it for my friend, but was glad it happened the day before I was to leave. I normally skip breakfast, but made sure I used a CS for breakfast the next morning, then went by Boardwalk Bakery the next day and got two CS meals to take to the airport with me. No way was I trading a CS credit for a Snickers bar like my friend had to do the day before.
