So you get 2 Quick Serving Meals per day, do you?
 
Use one for breakfast at the resort and the other one in the Parks or do you eat breakfast in the room and use the other two in the parks,

We would do breakfast in the room then use the credits for lunch and dinner. You could use snack credits for breakfast items as well.

I prefer to eat first thing so we usually have breakfast in the room. I pack a few things but we also tend to eat a lot of the desserts we were too full for from the day before. Nothing says vacation like cupcakes for breakfast :cool1:

morning is the best time to do the parks - so if you can definitely eat in your room before you leave for the parks.

or eat in the parks after you have been there a couple of hours and done most of what you intend to do.

You get 2 quick service meal credits per NIGHT you stay. Not per day. It may work out that if you eat 2 a day you may not have enough credits left for the last day, or that you have credits left over depending on what else you have planned or if you end up skipping meals.

There are 4 of us. We've used 2 credits for breakfast - splitting 2 bounty platters between the 4 of us - and then 2 for lunch, again splitting meals. Then we'd use 4 for dinner. It was plenty of food.

My DD and I travel together a lot and we do this quite often. We aren't big breakfast eaters anyway. Some days we'll use a snack credit for a muffin at the park and then each have a full meal at lunch and dinner.

My quick dining experience
 
When we did the quick serving dining package with snacks, we still had a few snack credits left over by the final day.We would sometimes eat breakfast @ the resort; but usually we weren't waking up until closer to lunch time. So we would have our 2 meals a day. Also, if you get 2-3 snack items at a time, they can ring it up as a meal, instead of 3 separate snacks. The plans work like this: if you are there for 5 days with 2 adults, 2 kids you will have 20 adult meal credits & then 20 kid meal credits on your key to the world card. The same goes for the snack credits, so the adults are sharing & the kids are sharing between them. It's nice in case someone is hungrier than another. Also, my kids could really share 1 kids meal between the both of them most days; so I would start off with 1 plate of between them both when they wanted the same food. Or I would eat their leftovers instead of getting something for myself. That's how we always end up with extra credits on the last day. It's nice b/c you can grab drinks or snacks for your trip to the airport/home.

From a financial perspective, breakfast is not a good use of a QS credit because you don't get the "dessert."

Although, runninggirl's plan helps cover all your meals :thumbsup2

Many people also use leftover CS desserts or snack credits for breakfast.

Sometimes this is allowed and sometimes it isn't...best advice is not to count on it.

I would get a bacon/egg/cheese on croissant $5.99. Pay OOP and split in half with DD. Sometimes DD would get oatmeal and I'd get cereal + milk. We would both get coffee or iced tea in refillable mug. So bkfst can be very cheap. You could bring your own cereal or breakfast bars. Buy milk at the gift shop. Get bread and use food court toaster + butter/jam. Best way to spend QS credits is on lunch and dinner.

We don't bring food for the room. We use our credits, sometimes sharing if we feel,like it, then we pay cash for the rest. If we know we will run out of credits, we pay cash for breakfast. We also do a few TS meals during the trip.

2Pirates2Princesses 12-03-2012 05:19 PM

We used our CS credits for breakfast at our resort food court on only two occassions during our seven night trip and primarily used our meal credits for lunch and dinner because we had two character breakfasts during our trip and we also ordered milk, cereal, juice, bagels, etc. from Garden Grocer for breakfast in our room. We also occasionally used desserts from CS meals (e.g., muffins, yogurt, fruit) and snack credits for croissants, cinnamon rolls, etc. for breakfast too and that worked out really well.

TXMalecifent 12-03-2012 05:23 PM

There will just the two of us, me and my fella. So if we have two room keys, does each key have access to our pool of credits? Or do we have to have both cards to order for each other? Or does it mean you and only you and your card can order for you?
