Another full board DLP question

Hi all
Iím visiting Disneyland Paris in October and trying to weigh up if itís worth upgrading my half board plan to full board. Staying at Davy Crockett, checking in on 3rd October and leaving on the 6th. Does anyone know how many extra credits we would get with full board please? Would we get an extra one for the check in day? Thanks!

You can use your lunch/dinner credits whenever you like.

For me, it would be way too much food. Buffet breakfast, 3-course lunch and 3-course dinner! Also meals can take several hours in France. That's prime park time.

Depending on the price difference of half board vs full board, it may be cheaper to just get half board and then grab a quick bite to eat at lunch as PAYG. We found full board to be good when our kids were young as it provided time to rest feet and relax during the busy part of the day. But as they've got older we prefer half board because we only get them a light lunch from a counter service place, which is much cheaper that way.

It's not a buffet breakfast at DCR, it's a breakfast basket. We got one pain au chocolate/croissant per person, a bagette, nutella, coffee (not sure if tea was on offer as H always went for it) and apple/orange juice.

We always take the full board when staying on site. Do a counter service style lunch then sit down/buffet dinner. Last day you get a counter service.

Ah OK, not stayed at Davy Crockett so obviously it's different there.

And I forgot they have now changed full board to a counter service and table service. It used to be two table service which was way too much.

Agreed, was a waste to use it the voucher at a quick service.

Iíve only taken half board for my 2025 trip but thatís cos weíll only have 4 park days and will have a buffet breakfast at our hotel.
