Question re "one per day" on dining plan

I'm staying for 6 nights with the dining plan. Is "one table service meal per day" literal, or does it mean that I have 6 table service credits for the trip? For example, I have Chef Mickey reservations for breakfast one morning, using 2 credits. Does that mean that I can't use a table service credit for a dinner, or does it mean that I can use a dining credit that night, but I will only have 3 remaining table service credits for the trip?

It means that you have 6 total.

Dining plan credits are based on the number of nights on your reservation. You state that you have a 6 night reservation, so you have six table service credits, six QS credits, and six snack credits (assuming you're on the regular DDP) per person on your reservation. So, for example, if you have two adults on your reservation, you'd have 12 TS, 12 QS, and 12 snack credits to be used among you (credits are pooled on the reservation; they're not assigned to a specific individual). They can be use whenever you want during the course of your stay from when you check-in until 11:59 pm on the day you check out.

If you wanted to eat a TS meal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you can do that. It would mean using up three TS credits (assuming no 2 TS locations) in one day, but that's fine. That would leave your three TS credits for the rest of your trip.

Chef Mickey's only takes 1 TS credit per person. So, if this was the first place you went, you would have 5 TS credits remaining (out of the 6 initially allocated). So if you go in the morning, you can certainly go to another TS location for dinner and use your credits.

You can see the credit costs (at least for this year) on the brochure for the DDP:

You get credits allotted per night you stay at your resort. Then you can use them anytime during the trip you want.

It means you have 6 total TS points that can be used however and whenever you wish. Some TS meals (signature/character) are actually 2 credits so you'll want to make sure to check that when making reservations. You may also use points off of other guests accounts that are on your booking. For example, we have a family of 4 so get 4 credits per evening between all of us. The account will show a total allowed of ( 4 guest x 7 nights) 28 TS meals. We can use those meals however we wish.
