Help/info re Universal Dining Plan please

Hi,

We’re thinking of getting Universals dining Plan when we go next year.

We will be staying at Royal Pacific for 9 nights but won’t be at the Universal parks every day as we plan on going to Discovery Cove and SeaWorld from there so we won’t need the Dining Plan for every day.

Am I right in saying I can purchase say a 5 day dining plan but DONT have to use it over 5 consecutive days? Also if we don’t use all of the snacks for example, can I use them the next day as with WDW dining plans?

Any info/help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks, Suzanne xx

The only information I have ever seen on the Universal dining plan indicates that you receive the features “each day.” Those words are printed on the literature. We don’t get their dining plan, because we find it pricey and the details confusing. It’s easier for us to pay as we go. We did the plan once, but it was a hassle.

I’d suggest calling and speaking to a representative from Universal Orlando about details of the plan.

We also have never used the Dining Plan at Universal and we've been there a lot. It's just much easier to pay out of pocket and not be tied down by the plan...which we didn't think saved a bit of money anyway.

By the sounds of it, it may not be the way to go and thinking about it more, one of our DDs ate practically nothing for the first 3 days

Thank you for replies
