I'm kind of regretting doing the dining plan again. Last time it was just too much food. It is definitely saving us money with SPD compared to what we'd pay out of pocket, but there's no flexibility and I hate wasting food!

So if anyone has any luck getting snacks instead of meals with meal credits at Pop please let me know!
It was a no for me this August. We had quite a few left over since we did HDDR, CP and t-Rex OP. We are actually thinking of just upgrading the dining this trip. Maybe even the resort since the cost after the upgrade isn't huge.

Poo. What about a "continental breakfast" at breakfast time - getting a pastry, a fruit, and a bottled drink? Would they take a meal credit for that? I just can't eat 3 big meals a day. I wouldn't have room for all the yummy snacks!

Looks like I'm late to the party when it comes to booking Pop for my friend and I in February... seems to be completely sold out for discounted rooms as well as GP-rate rooms. Looks like we'll be at ASMu 3rd-7th. Then we're staying in downtown Orlando for a conference for two days and then the only way we can book Pop for the 9th is through Expedia - every single value room for that night seems sold out on MDE

I'm so mad at myself for not booking earlier - I've known for nearly a month that we were going but I didn't rush as I've never had an issue getting the room I wanted before. I told her about seeing AKL for $185 on Expedia for our last night.... checked back today and they only have $320 Savannah View rooms left

In July, the food court mgrs were allowing an exchange of one CS meal for a snack but only on your day of departure. The food court mgr told me it is actually against policy but POP was doing it anyway because they felt if you paid for the DDP and that is how you wanted to use your credit, well so be it. Also the snacks have to come from the food court, they cannot come from the gift shop. NOW THAT SAID.... I would talk to a food court mgr first because most of the cashiers will tell you "NO", but the mgr can override that. That was my experience. HTH.

While I've not made this request, I have seen posts about it. You might want to check on the DisAbilities board as well. It seems like making the request well before you check in would be a better bet. My understanding is that they will use linens washed in special detergent, etc. and for that more advance notice would be beneficial.

We traveled with a party of 6 and did the two quick service meals a day. We never starved at all.

We had two adults a 17 year old boy and girls ages 14, 11 and 9

Many times the 11 and 9 year old split meals, even the kids meals. We then used some of those for some breakfast in the mornings. When it was all said and done after 6 days we had three meals we didn't eat. Wish we would have had a few more breakfasts in there.

There are some places like at the western place in Frointeerland you could get steak and chicken meals - lots and lots of food.

When at Epcot we shared meals and "ate around the world" the big winner on that trip was the Fish and Chips in England. My son who didn't like fish ate there again two times after that.

2 QS meals were more than enough for me!! I took a big bag full of snacks,etc for in the room. Turned out I totally did not even use 1/3 of the bag. LOL

Between the QS and snack and refillable mug I really didn't even need to bring that much snacks. Won't do that again.

Just checked in about an hour ago. Love that feeling when you see the POP sign.

No line for online check in. Got my requests.
The 50s. Overlooking the lake. And even 4th floor on the corner. Seriously. Perfect location.

Then I got to the room.
Never have I felt POP was worn. And maybe it was just a bad day for mouse keeping. But the windows (inside and out) were filthy. Grease marks and dirt. In the drawer there were empty sock containers. Junk on the poster in the room. And I assume brand new bedding because you could see every fold like it was straight outta the package.

Going to keep an open mind. Not the magic I expect when I usually walk into POP.

On a better note. Had dinner at Art of Animation. Gotta say it was WONDERFUL. plus love that you can use your mug in both locations.

Ughh! I hate the perfect room location and a dirty room.
Stop by the front desk and let them know.
Enjoy the rest of your stay!

Did you mean to quote a different post? I'm not concerned about not having enough to eat. The problem is that we will have extra meal credits left at the end of our trip and I was wondering if anyone was able to exchange meals for snacks at Pop.

It depends who you get at the register. I had a few CMs who put a few of my random snack items together and called them a QS meal while my friends put together a breakfast of milk, banana, cereal and were debited 3 snacks...
