You won't upgrade anything, the Regular DDP will automatically be put on your reservation the moment the CM adds the FD code to your moderate resort reservation. If you will want QS the entire trip you will have to convert them at the resort customer service desk or at the restaurants - but some CMs won't know about or understand this policy, so there have been some reports of it being a hassle in the restaurants.

Same for me, except that we have used TS credits for CS meals before 2012. The CS cashiers, I think, made absolutely sure we understood what we were doing, but we ran out of time in the trip to eat another table service meal, and just used TS credits for CS meals. There was no pre-planning required. For all I know, it may have become more complicated as of 2012, but our experience doing this pre-2012 was quite easy.

Prior to 2012, it was at the restaurants discretion but now it is policy property wide.

I think it did become official policy last year, but some people have reported having issues with CM at the CS locations not being aware of the policy when asked by guest if they can convert. Is the system now automatically deducting the TS credits for CS credit without CM override? Previously there had to be a CM override. If its being done automatically now, that's great, I just had not personally heard/read it yet.

Disney411, how are crowds typically the first week of October? I thought that they were low therefore free would be probable.

They are low to moderate. Just because it wasn't included this time doesn't mean there won't be a discount. It will likely be included in the next round. Typically July, but maybe we'll get luck and they'll release it in June after the current promo expires.

The first and last week of October are typically the slower week in October. But as Smitch said, the October - December dates aren't usually released until July, sometimes August.

I don't eat onions-they squelch when you bite into them
I don't eat raisins-they look like dried up bugs
Can we say food issues?

Every so often if I need to, I click on the bottom of my page (the box with an arrow in it) and send it to my email account.

From my email I can put it into an excel sheet or word document if I need too, but I usually just leave it in my notes and refer to it as I need it.

I keep all my travel confirmation numbers (hotel/airline/rental car) as well as a day by day list of my ADR's or events.

I also put any thing I expecially want to remember. I have a 4S and I can actually add to a list by voice command but I rarely do that as it just automatically adds it to the bottom and I like to add my notes to a specific day.

It's really just a long list.


I have a bunch that I change a lot like Shop, ToDo, Call. These I go in and edit as I do the activity or add to it. Then I have all travel under it's name and those get added to as I do something or reserve or get info. I love that feature. It's not as easy as being able to copy and paste but I don't mind typing and since I always have my phone it's easy to edit or look up something.

Ok....instead of converting them, can I use TS credits at CS locations? I'm sorry for all the questions but I'm a rookie to the dining plans and staying on property. I've never done it before.

I don't think "historically" has any bearing on what will be happening this year. This is already proven. No free dining in January or early February. September dining cut down to the ACTUAL lowest predicted crowds. Plus, anecdotally, we are going the next last and last week of October and my desired room category at YC and BC were both sold out by late January. I wouldnt consider 7s on the crowd calendar to be low crowds, anyway. I think the writing is on the wall. However, I do believe there will be a room discount or a Stay, Play, Dine discount, just not free dining. I guess we will see!

Yes, you can convert them at the restaurant.

Would it be more of a hassle, do you think, to just use TS credits at CS locations or just convert our TS credits to CS credits at our resort when we get there? I'm just trying to plan things out in my head sorry lol
