Sorry if this is a repeat question, but I’ve searched the forums and haven’t been able to find anything recent on this topic. Not sure if this is a FAQ and worth pinning, but here goes.
We’ve already decided to purchase the DDP - the “regular” plan with 1 QS, 1 TS, and 2 Snack credits per day. Without trying to debate whether it’s a good value, I’m trying to understand how the points are pooled, and whether I can actually rely on down-conversion of points.
I assume I start the trip, in our case six days and five nights, with a pool of points. I assume it is actually three pools - QS, TS, and Snacks – and not one big pool.
It’s not clear to me whether the number of days is calculated with our nights or days, but we have park tickets for six days so I assume DDP covers the duration, though that might be a bad assumption.
I’ve gathered by reading some of the content here that 1 QS may be worth three snacks. Is this in fact a rule that we can rely on, or are we subject to the generosity of the individual vendor?
Is there any similar conversion for TS – to QS and to Snacks?
I assume there is no “up conversion” – from Snacks to QS or from QS to TS.
Lastly, I’ve read that many (if not most) of the stalls at Epcot’s F&W will accept Snack credits. That is really the reason for the questions… We are debating whether to plan on a QS/TS meal at Epcot, or to use our QS or even TS credits throughout the day at various pavilions. We are a party of six – if we can use 1 QS credit to get 3 snacks at the same stall we may skip a traditional QS meal altogether our day in Epcot (but likely still plan on TS for dinner).
Thanks in advance!
