Can You Trade Leftover Quick Service Dining Credits for Snacks?
Yes! In all of my experience of being on the Disney Dining Plan, I plan out my Advanced Dining Reservations with Military-like precision but when it comes to Quick Service Dining Credits I always manage to have a few left over at the end of my stay. With all the feedback I get from my clients, this is a regular occurrence with many Disney travelers. That’s why I’m here to let you know that you don’t need to let those Quick Service Meals go to waste nor do you have to eat multiple breakfasts on your last day. Disney World has a pretty nifty policy allowing you to convert your Quick Service Dining Credits to Snack Credits!
How Does It Work?
Under the current system, guests on the Disney Dining Plan with leftover Quick Service Dining Credits can trade in 1 Quick Service Dining Credit for 3 Snack Credits. That means if you have leftover credits you can enjoy some awesome on-the-go items covering everything from Dole Whips to Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bars. There’s nothing you need to do in advance, the Cast Member will automatically deduct the appropriate credits for you! However, it’s important to know that you can’t split credits. You have to use all three snack credits in one go! So get a round of Dole Whips for everyone!
I Wish I’d Known This Before Check-Out Day. I Have a Bunch of Leftover Credits.
I feel you! Many of us don’t realize we have leftover dining credits until we are packing up our suitcases and heading for Magical Express. However, that doesn’t mean you have to take a loss on leftover Quick Service Credits. Guests can stop by your Disney resort hotel restaurant or gift shop and use your remaining snack credits on items that you can bring home. I love stocking up on Goofy’s Candy Company prepackaged candy, lollipops and more and surprising my daughter with a special Disney treat when we get home! All you have to do is look for candy and treats at the gift shop with the Disney Snack Logo on it. If in doubt speak to the Cast Member at the Gift Shop! This is a common request and they’ll show you what items you can get.
Does This Mean I Can Combine Snack Credits to Get a Quick Service Meal?
No. This process does not work in reverse.
Can I Use Leftover Table Service Credits to Get a Quick Service Meal?
Yes! This you can do. If you have leftover Table Service Dining Credits you can speak to a cast member who can convert these to 2 Quick Service Meals for you!
I’ve Tried Exchanging My Quick Service Meals for Snack Credits and Was Told I Couldn’t By a Cast Member.
I’ve actually been told this once or twice and it ended up being because the Cast Member I was working with was relatively new and didn’t know this was a policy. Sadly, sometimes its simply luck of the draw and depends on who you are speaking to. If at first you are told no, try speaking to another Cast Member. It is a widely regarded policy and you should be able to apply it to your dining plan without any problems.
