Final thoughts

So Iím sure youíre waiting on the verdict of how we got on with QSDP!

I had been really worried we would hate it being so used to having DDP. Thatís partly why I had so many TS planned originally. As it turned out though we cancelled a couple and didnít miss them. I really enjoyed the food and it was great not having to be somewhere just because we had an ADR there. We didnít have as much as an issue with dithering as I thought, except that day we ended up at The Boathouse, and we were able to agree quickly where we were eating. It probably helped having a list before we went of places we wanted to try.
What I will say though is that I donít think weíd have enjoyed it as much had DS not had so many good options now.
So the question, would we choose QSDP over DDP? The answer is yes and no. If we have a moderate resort booked weíll happily keep QSDP but if we want a deluxe hotel weíll also happily have DDP. Both have their pros and cons so itís going to be based on hotel in the future.

Good points

We just used credits as we wanted. I worried the first day using a QS credit for breakfast instead of snacks but actually it made sense in the end. We didn't worry about using them for breakfast if that's what we wanted. Even without the TS meals I think we'd have been fine.

Food & Wine again is always a good point and I donít feel like we did it justice at all. Next year we are definitely planning more Epcot time, not at the weekend!

Eating at Disney Springs was great too. We enjoyed all the new places we tried Ė Polite Pig, D-Luxe Burger and Chicken Guy. None of them were disappointing.

An unexpected high point was Woodyís Lunchbox. Those Totchos were excellent!

Beignets!

Wonít do again

Spending $180 on one meal for two people at The Yachtsman. As lovely as it was weíre not doing that again. Next year weíll maybe try somewhere like Longhorns for a steak dinner or manage with the F&W steak!

I donít think weíll go to Yak & Yeti twice next year. We have 2 $25 birthday rewards but I think weíd be better using one at Bubba Gumps.

Wasting credits on Ghirardelli. The truth is I don't love it and would rather have UK chocolate. We had so many QS credits left because of the TS meals we had so hopefully next year we'll have less.

Plans for next year

At the moment we plan on sticking with QSDP as we'll be more than likely staying at a moderate. So with that in mind:

I want to try some of the World Showcase QS options although F&W means we generally use snacks so that may be a fail.

There's still a lot of savoury snacks we've never managed, a lot in AK like the Eight Spoons macaroni cheese so I'd like to get through that list.

More beignets!

So that's the report done for another year I hope it's helped people with some plans, meal choices or dining plan choices!

Really enjoyed following along. Iím pleased you enjoyed the quick service. I would like to try ddp but Iím not sure I would enjoy co-ordinating all the adrs. If we werenít with the kids Iíd definitely give it a go! It is nice to be able to eat when your actually hungry and not having to rush to get to a restaurant. Thanks again for writing, I have a few more snacks and restaurants to add to my to do list. I look forward to finding out where your next trip takes you both.

Thanks for reading and commenting. I was glad we enjoyed QSDP! I usually donít mind being tied to ADRs as weíre normally pretty indecisive but it was actually fine.

Really enjoyed reading and your thoughts. I think we will try QS if (when!) we go again as I think it would suit DD especially. I wasnít impressed by coffee at kusafari think I had a latte.
