Meal Exchange

As an added feature you may exchange meals in the Warrior Crossing, and Concessions under the following restrictions.

  • Meals exchanged have no cash value and you must choose from the options on the posted menus at each location without substitution.  
  • One meal per meal period may be used during any given meal period with the purple and gold plans.
