    My husband and I are going to WDW in September to celebrate our anniversary. We were lucky enough to get the free dining plan, and we are staying at Coronado Spring Business Class, so we will have some pastry type breakfasts at our resort. We'll have four TS, QS and snack credits each. We are paying for some meals out of pocket, just because there are TS places I really want to try. :) Because of these two things, I can't figure out how to use all of our QS credits. This is what I have so far.

    Day 1 - (arriving in Orlando at 12:50. Head to Hollywood Studios after check-in)

    *Snack credit at Starring Rolls or Writer's Stop
    *Pay out of pocket for Sci-Fi Diner

    Total credits used - 2 snack credits

    Day 2 - Magic Kingdom

    *Table Service Breakfast - Crystal Palace
    *Random snack somewhere - probably Dole Whip
    *Lunch - Sleepy Hollow (not on the dining plan, though, right?)
    *Table Service Dinner - Ohana

    Total credits used - 2 snack credits, 4 table service credits

    Day 3 - Animal Kingdom

    *Business class breakfast
    *Quick Service Lunch - Yak n Yeti
    *Random snack somewhere
    *Table Service Dinner - Yachtsman Steakhouse or Flying Fish - we will share this meal, though, so it only uses 2 credits

    Total credits used - 2 quick service credits, 2 snack credits, 2 table service credits

    Day 4 - Epcot

    *Business class breakfast
    *Quick Service Lunch - Kringla Bakeri
    *Snack - Germany caramel shop
    *Table Service Dinner - Rose and Crown Pub

    Total credits used - 2 quick service credits, 2 snack credits, 2 table service credits

    Day 5 - Magic Kingdom (late flight)

    *Pay out of pocket - Liberty Tree Tavern lunch

    The way it works out, I'm losing four of my quick service credits. Can you get anything at Sleepy Hollow for quick service credits? I figure we won't be hungry enough for a real meal after Crystal Palace and then Ohana later that night, and I really want to try their waffles. Anywhere else you can see where I could add in a quick service?

    on your arrival day, depends on your ADR time for sci-fi, i would grab a QS lunch at your resort before you head over. also check closing time for starring rolls. i think that's the one i always get to after it closes early!! on your last day you say you have a late flight out, but only have a lunch scheduled. you could always fit a QS dinner in there (pinnochios, pecos bill, tomorrowland terrace) if there is time. if not, i would use a QS on breakfast at your resort one day to have something a little more substantial than pastries.

    Yeah, good point about lunch on the arrival day. I hadn't thought about that. We will probably only be able to fit in lunch on our departure day. I say "late flight", but we leave at 5:30, which means we'll probably need to be on the bus by 2ish?

    2 sounds about right. i would go for a QS breakfast on my last day. if you don't want to eat at your resort QS, head over to the contempo cafe and grab something there. you get to see/try a different resort and MK is just a short stroll away after breakfast.

    Agree about breakfast. Some mornings you might want a little more. You can always get a CS breakfast and then split it a couple mornings. Same with days that you don't want a full lunch, splitting something is always an option!

    Some of the resort food courts will let you trade a QS meal credit for 3 snack items. For instance, on your last day, you can grab a bottle of water (always handy throughout the day), a muffin, and a piece of fruit. Stash the food in your carry on for snacks at the airport or on your flight home.

    Have you thought of doing BOG for lunch on your last day instead of Liberty Tree? BOG is a GREAT use of QS credits. It feels more like a sit down--they bring the food to your table, on real plates, real silverware. You get to see the inside of the castle and pick which room you want to eat in.
