    Out of Pocket - i.e., not using the dining plan for a particular meal.

    You know it means out-of-pocket here though since here we're all Disney geeks. ;)

    I'd tried to change it to OTP (off the plan) - but it never took off.

    To me, oop (out of pocket) doesn't necessarily make a lot of sense since the money to pay for our ddp came out of my pocket as well, but hey, got to go with the flow. :rotfl:

    Out of Pocket...meaning you pay cash or credit card at the restaurant...versus using TS, CS credits on the DDP.

    Right on! That is correct

    A caution to all, if you are paying OOP - don't charge it back to your room. Use your credit card or cash. There have been many reports (and it happened to us) that they wound up charging it against our dining plan rather than a charge for the total to the room.

    I had thought of that. I was planning on not even bothering linking a credit card to my room key, but I do need to do that for express check-out. But I always link a credit card, but then never bother using the room key as credit and just use my VISA.

    The original question has been answered, but here is a link to a page that contains more definitions. (hope this works) :cool1:



    I don't have enough posts to put up an actual link so here is the address:
    stitchkingdom (dot) com/acronyms/

    add a www & change the (dot) to . and remove spaces. :rolleyes1
