Our last trip to Disney World fell within the “free dining plan” timeframe. Since we stayed in a Value Resort, we qualified for the free Quick Service Dining Plan. With this, each person in your party receives 2 quick service meals plus 1 snack for each night of your trip. We don’t go through a lot of quick service meals (we tend to do a lot of meal sharing due to Disney’s decent portion sizes). Plus, we had two table service meals planned, and another that popped up unexpectedly. Towards the end of the trip, we realized we’d have about 20 unused quick service meal credits. What to do? Well, there’s a relatively new policy that lets you exchange 1 quick service meal credit for 3 snacks. You have to get all 3 snacks within the same transaction, and not all places have “the right kind of cash register” for this exchange. We were able to do this at the store and food court at All-Star Music, many gift shops, any confectionary location, and several counter-service restaurants.
