We have about 6 CS credits left on the night before we left, so we loaded up on a whack full of snacks to burn through - and finished them the next morning, with another cashier putting us through.

So, we could split.

Has that changed since?

There are reports here on the Dis of CMs converting TS credits to CS and CS to Snacks, but it's not an across the board guideline that Disney does. They do not advertise it and they won't confirm that they do or don't convert snacks if you email them. I think it's one of those things where you can most likely convert to some degree, but don't always count on it. Sorry, that's so vague, but it's one of those vague guidelines - kind of like late fastpass, they usually accept them, but it's not advertised and they have to option at any time to not accept them.

What happens if Disney changes the dates offered for Free Dining after you make a reservation but before you fully pay for the package?

I may be wrong but I believe that if you are booked and have paid some on your package (deposit) then Disney will still allow you to keep the FD on your package even if they change the dates.

The only difference would be if you were not supposed to be able to get the FD offer then they may add on the DDP cost later once they see the error. But some here have done this and have yet to have that happen and I have heard from others that have.

I didn't read the entire thread so sorry if this has already been asked. Is it possible to do a split resort stay and still get FD? And if so, what if the date you are checking into the second resort is not a FD date?

Please help! I have a free dining package booked 1/27-2/10. We will not be staying 14 nights probably more like 6 or 7. My husband most likely find out exactly what dates he can take off work in early December. I was thinking that I could change the dates (something inside my curent date range just less days) before my 45 day mark but it will be after the free dining booking period is over. Can I do this???

You should be able to change your dates provided you are still checking in on a date that FD is offered. And remember, the FD dates changed. I believe the original offer was through February 4, but now it's February 2. We had a reservation February 1-14. I wanted to shorten up our stay and was hoping since I already had a reservation that it wouldn't matter what I changed the dates to. I specifically wanted to check in February 4, but since that date is no longer part of the FD offer, I couldn't do it. I have to check in during the FD dates. Does that make sense; answer your question?

Yes, I think so. I was just worried about changing the dates after the free dining offer has ended

We were allowed to trade one counter service meal for 3 snacks(it's called a continental) with no problem numerous times just last week. The only thing it, it has to be at a place that actually sells MEALS, not just snacks. We were allowed at the food courts at the hotels or at QS restaurants but not at the candy store or food cart that only sold snacks. They told us they do not have the proper "continental" button on their machine to allow it. At any rate, we got a bunch of fruit cups, chips, and drinks on the way out. I think this is only fair, I do not see why you should have to lose credits. We just cannot eat that many quick service meals b/c we are not huge eaters and usually share a meal. Or for instance my daughter and I like a biscuit and gravy for breakfast. They give you two biscuits and we split this and it is only a snack credit!!

Thank you very much! Does the FD usually stop in September? I'm thinking of planning a trip for late November/early December of next year.
