HI everyone. Got home sat 6th may 2017 and loved every minute of it! I am so jealous of anyone who is about to start there magical journey.
I must admit the whole meal plan thing is rather confusing! I think I've worked it out though.
When you arrive you will receive your meal tickets and printed on your ticket on the bottom left corner are your restaurant choices that your ticket can be used in.
Now the ones on your ticket you can eat in and won't be charged extra. Some fast food restaurants are Cheaper than your value on your ticket and will of course be taken in there. If you want to eat somewhere that is more expensive then you will have to pay the extra outstanding balance.
I hope this makes sense!!!
In your park guide that you pick up at the entrance there is a list of all the restaurants and what they serve. You can go into town hall on the left hand side in Main Street to reserve/book restaurants.

Hi, there!  I have recently booked a trip for October 2017 for my 10th wedding anniversary.  It is our first visit to a Disney park out of the states, and I am trying to sort out the meal plan details.  I have a few questions, if anyone can help me out.  I have done the Meal Plan thing at WDW, but this seems to be more confusing to me...

1) When we booked online, it only gave us the choices of Half or Full Board, but now I am finding out all the other tiers within each option (i.e. Hotel, Standard, Plus, Premium).  These options weren't listed when we booked.  How do I know which option we have?  Should I assume it is the most basic (Hotel)?
2) Can the vouchers be used at a Counter Service restaurant instead of Buffet/Table Service if wanted?  (I realize we would be "losing" money if used this way, but just wondering...)
3)  If you have Half Board, are you restricted to only using one Buffet/Table service per day, or, for example, can you use 2 in one day (Lunch and Dinner) and none the next day?

Any help is greatly appreciated!  Thanks!

If I went with Standard Half Board, does this mean we could eat at the Agrabah Cafe? It says includes buffet, but the price seems a little too good to be true?

The vouchers can be used in counter, lower value, restaurants but some cast members look really confused as to why you want to and encourage you not to. One showed us a special menu which had a different dessert or some small extra item.

They will be valid for the length of your stay. You could, in theory, use them all on day one.

I believe your meal plan is linked to the hotel, higher priced hotel means better meal plan, but I'm not 100% on this.

Hi all. Going in September. Staying in Newport Bay two nights, three days in the park.

We have the full board plus took the breakfast meal plan as well in the hotel.

So we arrive the sunday afternoon, full day Monday, then depart Tuesday afternoon.

What would the breakdown of the food vouchers be then? I assume we would get breakfast, lunch, dinner on the Monday, and then at least breakfast on the Tuesday.

What do we get for the Sunday then? And would we get lunch for the Tuesday as well?

It's hard to get a straight answer!

We are visiting DLP over new years, we have brought the half board meal plan vouchers. On the Disney website, they said the meal vouchers cannot be used on the 31st, in our confirmation email we got it says they are valid per day. e.g 31/12/17 - 31/12/17. We are there 3 night but 4 days so only got 3 vouchers. Can we buy a meal with cash on the 31st? and then use the voucher on the 1st, 2nd & 3rd?

Any advice on this subject would be a big help!

Thanks, Fred.

Half board is breakfast and dinner (or you can use your voucher at lunch but you would need to eat a lot at lunch due to the value). Snacks are available if you have a compass club room. The pause gaumand is no longer available for a snack in the park.

It will be my first visit come February 2018, and I've opted for the standard half-board meal plan.
My question relates to using vouchers at counter service restaurants.
Do all counter service restaurants have a fixed meal option if one were to use a meal voucher or could one use a meal voucher at face value and order la carte(including beer!). I figure if my wife and I feel a bit peckish at lunch, we could share a single voucher by using it at a counter service restaurant, ordering several dishes, and do something similar for dinner. Of course, we plan on taking advantage of the buffets but  I'm hoping to have this option.
thanks for the tips :)

Meal vouchers are sadly one use per person- so you cant use yhem to.order multiple dishes in counter service restaurants, just one meal per voucher

polar vixen-
thanks for the quick reply :)

By the way- what's your opinion on the Santa Fe dinner buffet vs the other buffet options in the standard half-board meal plan?
is the food much different or is the difference mostly atmosphere?
Being that La Grange at Billy Bob's is tex-mex is it basically the same as santa fe?

We only booked 3 nights for our first visit to dlp and have more options than dinners. :-)
