If you’re on the Disney Dining Plan, it’s important to be aware that there are SO MANY snack options! It’s easy to use your credits on things like Mickey Bars, Popcorn, and bottled water, but these snacks are not the best use of your snack credits.
I almost always travel with a Disney Dining Plan on my package, and I like to get the most bang for my buck. Using your snacks credits on those more expensive snack options, is a great way to do just that.
Dining Plan Snack Credit Tips
As a rule of thumb, I try not to use my snack credits on anything under $4-$5. For items that fall into that category, I usually pay out of pocket.
Another great snack credit tip – is take home snacks. Your resort hotel, and most of the stores on property, have snacks that you can take home for yourself, or as souvenirs for family. You can enjoy gummy candy, rice krispy treats, shortbread cookies & so much more. Sometimes, this contradicts my $5 rule. However, personally, I love having treats to take home for myself & others. So to me, this is a great use of a snack credit.
Make sure you do your research & compile a list before you go. What I love about some of these snack credits, is that they can often be used as a meal! We’ll get into those options in just a minute.
My final snack credit tip, is trading in a quick service credit for 3 snack credits. Again, this is not a great use of your quick service credit, but sometimes it’s unavoidable if you are a solo traveler, or had a dining plan that was just too much for your family. You can use a quick service credit for 3 snacks, but it must be redeemed at one location. I end up doing this a lot at the Epcot festivals, and with my take home snacks.
Whether you’re partaking in the Festival of the Arts, Flower & Garden Festival, Epcot Food & Wine Festival or Epcot Festival of the Holidays, the booths are a great place to indulge in delicious snacks, and many of the booths include Disney Dining Plan snack credit options.
As mentioned previously, you can redeem snack credits & quick service credits at most of these booths! Given that these dishes often range in cost from $4-$9, it is a PERFECT use of your credits!
