Our family loves the savings and convenience of adding on the Disney Dining plan when we head to The World. We always get the Deluxe Dining plan, which include 3 meals (seated or quick service) and two snacks per day. Most people spend tons of time planning out where they are going to eat their meals and how they can get the most out of their dining points but people sometimes tend to over look the value in their snack credits.
First off, if you are planning to go to WDW during the Epcot Food and Wine Festival you have just hit the snack credit jackpot! What we like to do is save up our snacks and do a “journey around the world in 180 minuets” meal. In past years, a vast majority of the yummy food finds at the festival booths have been included in the eligible snack points. With most options still only counting as 1 snack point you can stuff yourself with 3-5 snack points and save one of your meal points to go towards something extra fun like a dinner theatre meal!
If you are traveling during any other time of the year, never fear! There are still an abundance of filling eligible snacks waiting for you! Here are my top 10 favorite picks!
- Bakeries – They have them all over the world and you have a bunch of options! Cinnamon Rolls, cupcakes, muffins, bagels…. The list goes on and on. Remember, most things that are a single serving and cost under $4.50 are included on the snack point menu!
- Funnel Cakes
- Dole Whip
- Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches
- Baked Potato
- chicken fried rice and egg rolls ---- YUM
If you don’t manage to use all your credits that’s ok too! On our first trip using a dining plan a few years back we ended up with 10 snack credits each left over! We were able to cash them in at the Main Street Bakery for some great goodies to take home to our friends who were doggie sitting for us (and the ones we just wanted to brag to about how much fun we had just had!).
