Lots of good CS places in the resorts.
You ccan go to the Pepper Market for a buffet for lunch as well. A ridiculously good deal for 1 CS credit. Decent food too with a very nice variety.

We really liked AoA's food court as well. I had the tandoori - while not amazing, was very nice for a change of pace. DH had the surf and surf. We ordered the big pizza for the kids - they made a small dent in it and we brought the rest home.

We did prefer AoA's food court over Pop - better food for sure.

Yes it is, slightly different for a CS as you get wait staff, they take your plates and fill your drinks so expect a tip but it is worth the few extra $'s.

Just noticed this thread. Absolutely DDP will be enough food. In fact like others we spent most of our snack credits on Candy and also had 4 or so CS credits unused.
The Deluxe plan would be an insane amount of food unless you eat in 2 TS Signature restaurants.

Plenty of food on DDP - we often have 1 or 2 signature
Meals but always have use all our credits!

My tips for DDP:

1) eat what you fancy ! Just because you can get an entree for $36 over another for $18 - no point in being greedy! You only end eating too much which can hamper your day! Plus costs you more in a tip!

2) use your snacks! After all DDP is free whilst 10 bottles of water may only cost $25 better to get something you want than saving them for that magical 'more expensive item'

3) if you eat at a food court in your hotel and don't want dessert - THIS is when you buy packed bags of goofy treats - we seldom wanted cake but opted for a pack of goofy lollies that the kids could give to friends at no additional inconvenience or cost to us!

Yes you just pay tips on the TS meals.

You can pay cash or charge to your room.

Disney put 2 suggested tips on the check to save you working it out - 18% and 20%.

If there are 6 of you then the 18% tip is automatically added.

I assume you're getting entree mixed up with appetiser, an entree is a "main". You are right that an entree, or main course and a dessert are included on DDP, appetisers you can pay for oop, I don't know how people could fit that in though, I'd be stuffed! Lol

Hi all
I cannot believe anyone eats all the food on any of the plans. We had the qsdp included, 6 of us for 21 nights we had 252 meals and 252 snacks. We tended to gave Bowl of cornflakes in the cabin for breakfast and one meal from the plan through the day. Didn't want all 3 courses but had to have them which we left on the table. We did have about 20 snacks left, but the qs plan we had over 130 meals left and we were never hungry. We are not picky eaters it was nice stuff, bit too American but it was good. But I just can't believe anyone could stomach 2 meals a day with desert and massive pop and 2 snacks.

But u brought breakfast and ate in the room. If u had used 1 snack credit to buy cereal and 1 snack credit for milk for breakfast (or 1 CS for a continental) each every morning, u would have gone through your credits a whole lot faster. Also, having a group of 6 to share and split credits with over the course of an extended 21 day stay makes a big difference over the typical family of 4 staying a week.

I find its plenty...but because we also want bfast in the food court (dh likes a "proper bfast") we absolutely have to share and be slightly careful to have our credits cover the whole trip.

I tend to find the people who say it's way too much food bring/buy breakfast to eat in their rooms. If u want it to cover breakfast too, u have to stretch the credits a bit and then it no longer feels like way too much food.

No, it is the one thing they are really strict on - no swapping your dessert for an appetiser.
