No, you can't downgrade, but the restaurants will now let you trade TS credits for CS credits or you can go to guest relations and have them convert the credits.

I wouldn't be downgrading...I'm perfectly happy with our QSDP. I was just wondering if I'd still get FD staying at a moderate with it. If...they offer the same promotion for late fall.

The current promo is if your at Value you get QSDP, Moderate and above you get SDP.

They wont offer the quick service DDP at the moderates under a free dining promo. If you call and add the FD code to your existing reservation, it will automatically be the Regular/Basic DDP. If you want to do quick service dining during your stay, you will have to have your TS credits converted into CS credits. It's a much bigger hassle to do it in line at the CS locations, do go to guest services at your resort and have them convert the TS credits for you. You can not do this over the phone beforehand, it can only be done after check in.

But you paid more for the DDP than the QSDP...how would that work converting them? Sorry...I'm confused and your helping me figure it out...lol

Is it just a document you made, or how did you create the page?

It's free dining, the cost is $0 for either plan. If you want to take advantage of a free dining offer at a Moderate Resort, you are automatically given the Regular/Basic DDP, that is how the discount code/package will be set up on the WDW reservations system, they will not be able to downgrade you to the Quick Service plan under that FD code in their system. If you only want to do QS during your trip, you will have to have your TS dining credits converted into CS credits, because your FD reservation at a moderate resort will automatically include one (1) credit per person, per night of your stay.

Well, with the reduced dates of the now-announced late summer free dining plan and the high number of resort bookings in October, I have resigned myself that FD will certainly NOT be coming in October. They have absolutely no reason to do so. Bummer. I have a decent discount already but free dining would save us some bucks.

My 180+10 was this morning and I had trouble getting my desired times, even places that I have never had any trouble scoring before. For example, Narcoossees on my birthday I couldn't get a time that works with seeing Wishes. No 8:05 ADR at Crystal Palace. Pirate's League was booked up (at 180+7!) for the time I planned. Certainly, no BOG was available! Busy, busy.

Oh ok...now I think I got it. If they offer the same promotion for October...I can upgrade my dining to DDP again, get it free, and than trade it in for QS credits at my resort?? Our trip is unorganized. We don't want to plan anything including dinner reservations so the QSDP was perfect for us.

So you have to have the credits changed at check in? It's not as simple as telling the CM checking you out to use a TS instead of a QS? Cause I'm in the same boat as the PP. We are only eating at 2 restaurants so I'd want the rest in QS credits.

I have never heard of anyone having to go through all of the switching business. As of Jan. 1, 2012, you can use any TS credit for a CS meal anywhere on property. The cashiers will use up your CS credits first, then once they are gone they will just deduct your TS credits.

Oh, I don't think October will totally be blocked out for free dining. At the very least, the last week of October is a historically low crowd week and they will most likely need to fill resort rooms that week.

I hope this is the case! I'd hate to transfer my credits beforehand in case we spontaneously eat at a TS.
