Im planning my first Disney trip next year and have qualified for free Disney dining quick service meal which includes 2 snacks... I was wondering how do you know from looking at the menu what is classified as a snack and what is classified as a meal?
Just got back from Disney World, and this video helped us out a lot! We definitely got our money's worth with the dining plan (which was free because we went in the off-season). The Poutine fries in Epcot were great, but they've changed it since this video. They don't serve it with the soup drizzled on top. Now its just a thick beef gravy, but its still very good and worth a snack credit!
I do appreciate this video. We are planning an extended trip in a few months. All the meals are planned out so i appreciate you pointing out these snacks. Some of which I never would have even considered but will now and will also have to organize my dining to accommodate these snacks. Looking forward to taking advantage of your suggestions! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!
I have gone to disney world atleast every other year since i can remember,but for my husband and i's honeymoon and it was the first time i booked the whole pkg with deluxe dining plan,i so wish i knew about your blog then
Starbucks had some good snacks. A huge carrot cake (at least 2 people could share) and a large strawberry ice milk drink (frappuccino) with whipped cream were 2 of my go-to dining plan snacks at Hollywood Studios.
Could you please make a video about best items to turn into a full meal from snack credits? We are making our journey to Disney, and have gone for the Deluxe dining plan (Simply for the coverage of credits for the character dining), for my daughter (7) and myself. Thank you! LOVE your video's!
AJ, hoping you can help. My wife and I will be taking our daughter for her first trip in 2019 to WDW in late October/November for her 5th bday. #1 planning on staying either at the CBR or Wilderness lodge. Heard about CBR construction? Will it be done by then? We plan on making it a true vacation with plenty of relaxing/resort time. #2 we want to also do a character breakfasts one day, a character lunch on another then a memorable dinner on another day. Planning on 6 days / 5 nights. Best Dining plan options? We will visit the parks of course but don't want it to be our majority of time. Our main focus will be food and shows.
I had to stop my niece from loading up on bananas for snack credits - our FIRST day! Poor girl - she got in line and I caught up with her just in time.
She was using ALL of the allotted credits - wish there was a way to separate out the credits by each person on the reservations.
I got free quick dining plan for next trip! All I’m thinking about is how to maximize and how to not to use credit that way I can bring some pre packed snack back home as souvenirs!
Aj, can you do pre packaged snack for snack credit??
I love your vids! We are going to Disney World next year and have been in love w your channel! I really appreciate all the suggestions. We are in Cali and go to Disneyland multiple times a year, but have never been to Disney World. Really excited!
I never eat any of the sorts of foods shown in this video and I want them ALL right now! My trip is 9 months away and I need to start dieting a bit now so I can really enjoy all of these goodies! I am going with husband and 2 kids, so that is 8 snack credits a day we are working with which means a lot of sharing and everyone getting to try lots of new things!
People often don't know, or they forget, that if you are going to WDW during an EPCOT festival such as Food and Wine or Flower and Garden, that you CAN use your snack credits at the booths in the World Showcase, and most of those items are, indeed, SNACK CREDITS!!! We always save up our allotted snacks for the days we visit the festival, and its always well worth it.
I live in Florida, we are planning a trip to Disney World in November. Already make reservations and everything, I was checking the restaurants in the disney's web page, and came to the surprise that most of these restaurants won't accept dinning plans. Gaston's tavern, sleepy hallow, chesire cafe, to name some. I hope it will change back for the time we will be there.
Our favorite Best Value Snack Credits are all the Yummy Delights in the Sunshine Seasons Desert Case! The Chocolate Mouse Cake is our favorite and is MORE than enough for 2 people to share! It's been a couple years since we did the meal plan, but that was our go to snack back in the day at Epcot! TY AJ for another interesting video!
The dole whip is really good if your a pineapple person. I am really excited to try the mickey cinnamon roll, peanut butter sundae, peanut butter pie, the ice cream sundae with a mickey waffle, the citrus swirl, and the peanut butter brownie. The ice cream cookie sandwich is amazingly awesome but really big so you could definitely share it. I have had a lot of snack credits the times I have been there but most of these I have never tried. I thought that this video was very helpful for not wasting our snack credits. My mom and I are very into Disney so we have studied a lot and it payed off a lot when we went. They have so many snacks there that I’m sure you would be fine with any of them but this video will help you really well especially if haven’t been there before but even if you’ve been there 5 times. Don’t take this video as a joke because it could really help you if you go. And if you were smart you would watch more videos like this to make your vacation perfect! You might think that this is stupid but when it comes to Disney I take it very seriously. Thank you so much for posting this video. It was very helpful. I am very excited to go to Disney World with my whole family for my 8th time. By the way I am only 9 years old but I still now a lot and most of it comes from my mom.I hope all of you have the time of your life when you go. I encourage all of you to study and do a lot of planning but not to much so you are feeing like your doing school all over again.
This is a great video and I’ll definitely get that list before my next Disney trip. I always try to use my dining credits to their max but now I see I’m still leaving money on the table. These Disney exclusive treats are part of the whole park experience which I want when I go. If you’re blowing precious credits on chips and drinks, or you hate desert then yes, the dining plan is not worth it.
How much is a dining plan? We are a family of 5 (my 4 kids and I) We are going in 3 years. Is it cheaper in the long run for us to get the quick service dining plan? We went last and only went to 1 or 2 sit down restaurants.
I am soooo excited to hear that Citrus Swirl is back!!!! I went in Feb and got it by accident, but loved it way better than Dole Whip. I have been craving it ever since. Hurry up Thanksgiving, I need some Citrus Swirl!
Great video (as usual)!!! Could you do the best value for 'healthy' snack credits in the parks/resorts? We're visiting in October, so we'd love to have an idea of the best places to go for our quick service dining plan+healthy options. Thanks!!
Whether you use the dining plan or not, if you're going to a restaurant, tell your server that you're diabetic and ask what's available for you to eat - usually the chef will come out and talk with you! And, if you make reservations ahead of time, you can call and tell them your dietary restrictions - Disney is EXTREMELY helpful with all dietary concerns! I speak from experience - they're really marvelous.
My favorite all time best value snack credit is the Large Caramel Popcorn at the Worther's booth in Epcot. I am not sure if it is near Germany or near Norway, but, it is by far one of the best values because you get a HUGE bag of corn and you can share it with everyone. We have gotten it before and shared it all week. Another one of my favorites is the Oatmeal at PORS. You can get a bowl of Oatmeal and load it with stuff like granola or fruit and it is a snack credit. At least the last time I checked. But, definitely the caramel corn. WINNER!
At All Star Music we were able to use snack credits (in December 2017) on the “fancy milkshakes” like the chocolate cake shake and the peanut butter and jelly shake (was better than the one at 50s prime time cafe in our opinions). These shakes are $7.99 each! This was the best deal we experienced and such a nice surprise at our hotel.
