...plus 2 snack credits and a refillable resort mug.

As far as Im aware, a TS credit has always been useable as a QS credit - so you can use TS credits to get either TS meals or QS meals as you like.
Actually, that's a good point and you are very right (as usual )

The value question is a bit harder to answer, I think it depends comes into it. You could certainly get value out of the dining plan if you wanted lots of expensive character meals, steaks and lobster. On the other hand, if you did not buy a plan, then you might eat differently, go offsite, have cereal in room etc and end up spending less than the plan would cost. I think the plan itself, is priced about right for somebody that wants exactly what it offers.
Time of year has a big influence on how easy it is to rearrange ADRs plus how flexible you can be in time plus party size.

September through to Christmas is a lot harder to get ADRs than summer.

Value if you are paying is easier if you have kids as the plan is cheap compared to the price of the character meals - so doing those makes it easy. Once you have a ten year old it gets harder.

If you eat the way the plan is designed exactly it can be good - but for longer trips most of us Brits go offsite for a least a couple of days making it harder to get that value.

Sounds interesting but I have no idea how they will structure the pricing on that as for people who want just QS I imagine the price will be hiked up as effectively you could have DDP on this package too.

No idea, I would imagine those people that would be eating only quick service would stick to the original qs plan and maybe pay out of pocket for a couple of table service meals if required. It will be interesting to see how the pricing of this goes.

Thanks for posting. Wonder if this will be an option next year? Makes it more flexible.
