Earning My Ears

I am new to the DP, are you able to swap out your desert for an appetizer for a table service credit?
I've heard of some restaurants allowing this. It depends upon the value of the item, and what that particular cast member tells you. I wouldn't count on it, but it never hurts to ask.I am new to the DP, are you able to swap out your desert for an appetizer for a table service credit?
My apologies for asking original question. I tried searching for the answer on the site, but did not find anything. I promise not to ask to swap out my dessert.It’s a big deal. If Disney actually allowed this the dining plan popularity would surge. They don’t. Ever.
ive read a one off post here and there and never believe them. I read most posts here and have for close to 18 years. This is not a thing. Feel free to ask, but it’s a big fat no.
the only exception, and it is defined in the dining plan literature, is dessert for a cup of soup or other small item. You will never trade a cake slice for shrimp.
if dessert w every TS does not entice you, reconsider a dining plan.
It's not the price. It's a combination of the work required, and the table turnover time.And just so you know, I never dreamt they’d let me trade a slice of cake for shrimp. However I did think perhaps a $9 plate of garlic knots could be substituted for a $9.50 piece of cake! The literature I found said there may be substitutions I wasn’t aware what that might be.
Interesting. They must have gotten more strict recently. We had the DP for trips in '15/16 and we were able to do this for almost every meal. I remember doing it at La Hacienda, Tutto, Rainforest, and Coral Reef.It’s a common enough question. But the answer is not what anyone wants.
I just don’t want you to think you cN swap ou a similar priced option. Sorry if it sounded harsh.
if they did allow it, many tables would split an app and a dessert. I know we would.
Nah, i don't think it's anything recent. Most restaurant have been pretty adherent to this specific restriction, over all the years since the basic DDP dropped including appetizers.Interesting. They must have gotten more strict recently.
Though would love to hear if you've been able to do this by asking the server politely.@Miffy The thing is, you can't even substitute an appetizer for an entree.
Thanks! That's likely what I'll do, pay OOP. While I love steak, I'm not sure I want something that heavy on a hot July day!It’s not a matter of being nice but the automation. Everything is rung up via pos system. There is no way around what something is.
you could just pay oop for the app you want. Or share w the friend you are meeting.
