Just paid off our trip and we're arriving in 45 days! Hubby and I stayed at Riverside in 2005 but this time it'll be us and our 3 kids! Can't wait-so excited. We booked a pool view room with free dining and we'll be in alligator bayou since there's five of us. (Wasn't my first choice of view but all that was available for free dining). Again, I'm so excited...Feels more official now that the 45 day mark is here and it's paid. I love this thread too. Everyone is so helpful and so much information!

Or is there a way at the resort food court to convert a TS credit to snacks?

Thanks,

I am not sure you can. It the food court you can get three sides/snacks and have them use the "continental combo" to use a TS/CS credit. But I do not believe that they can convert it so that they take a TS/CS credit, turn it into 3 snacks, then let you use it somewhere else.

Thanks! That's not too far from us-we're in Sparta, about an hour from Wartburg.

We leave for POR in 26 days!!! We are also excited. Never stayed at POR and I am happ to see so many people who have been there return to that hotel again and again. It must be nice. We look forward to it. I think I better book a bounce back offer because I have had so much preparing and anticipating this trip I do not know what I will do when it is over! Have a good time.

We are all checked in to a AB room. I requested a mansion room, so I was initially bummed, but this room is great! And I had to call, but got a refrigerator. It was dark when we arrived, but it looks beautiful. Excited for tomorrow.

45 days for us too, just made my final payment today! Woo Hoo! First stay at POR and first trip for hubbie and me as empty nesters. Having mixed emotions about going to Disney without the kids, eventhough they're grown and in college and working, but excited about the new experience that awaits us. We are going to just go at a relaxing pace and enjoy the resort, instead of our usual commando style.

Yes, that's about how it works. I was speaking to a senior F&B Manager at Port Orleans on the subject, and she said there is no official policy or exchange rate that allows you to convert between the different dining credit types. At a quick service location (such as the Riverside Mill) where they have a menu option of a snack, a drink and a piece of fruit for one credit then they can flex that to allow you to get variations as long as you stick to those three item types (although it is not a 'rule', it's management discretion). However they can't covert the credits for use elsewhere.

Which is why we ended up with 20 Counter Service credits left on our last day in August, and I came home with a lot of Mickey Rice Crispy Treats and we had a big bottled-drinks giveaway on the walk back to our room.

Also shops are unlikely to help as the DDP funds go into the F&B Department, not Merchandise, so it's not in their best interests to effectively give their stock away.

DH just found and ordered a case of Nestle bottled Water 24 pack for about $9 after shipping on Amazon if that helps.
