Being on the dining plan has nothing to do with it. You must buy something at one of the listed quick service locations to get the coupon. You can use either a QS credit or cash - doesn't matter. And - they have been running it the past couple of years in December as well. We actually plan our trip's souvenir shopping around it.

I show them doing this back in November as well.

This. A manager in merchandise told me that this is intended to encourage more guests to do their shopping earlier in the day, instead of creating a mad rush of guests at MouseGear and Emporium every night after park close.

Given the amount of trash produced in the parks daily (cups, napkins, park maps, etc.), the extra length of receipt tape really doesn't amount to much in the larger scheme of things. While an electronic 'coupon' would be possible, only the paper version effectively advertises the promotion by describing it on something you give the customer. Posting signs, if they even get noticed, wouldn't be nearly as effective, people would forget about it, or become confused as to when and where they can redeem the coupon. Remember the objective is to get people shopping, not to reduce paper waste.

So just to clarify, I have the quick service dining plan for my upcoming trip. I'll still get a coupon, right?

Really cool idea.

Not to mention the new air blades actually work unlike the filthy yellow germ dispensers that disney puts in. The excelerator dryers are far superior.

It would be cool if they could do this, but not everyone uses their magic bands to buy food, and getting a receipt from one of those food places is how you get the discount on merchandise. Maybe they could work it so that people who do use their magic bands to charge their food purchases could be notified that they have a discount waiting for them, but then they wouldn't have a list of all the places they could use the discount (it's not all of the shops, just certain ones). Still a neat idea though.

They have both

Sorry to change thread topics, but they're not eliminating the towels completely though right? The airblades are low capacity (1 person has to stand in front of it for 10 seconds, rather than take paper towels and go) and they're obnoxiously loud. I prefer the paper towels.

I'm a fan of the paper towel.

If only there was some way for Disney to get rid of the paper coupon for guests and do this electronically... :cool: I'm really surprised that this wasn't tied to the MagicBands. A limited time frame to deal with, and limited in scope as far as restaurants go. To me, that's a no-brainer. But then again, my brain doesn't think like Disney management "brains" do.
