When you’ve booked your Disney World vacation, chances are you chose a fitting Disney Dining Plan to go with it. All Dining Plans hold a certain amount of credits to spend on food and beverages all over the parks and hotel restaurants/stores. Snacks are also being represented! Depending on your type of Dining Plan, you will receive all your snack credits at once during check-in time. It’s up to you how you spend them; if you like you can spend them all at once in one day or spread them out as you like. There are so many countlessly types of snacks Disney offers. Let’s set some out here and show you our personal Disney Dining Plan snacks top 5.
Disney Dining Plan snack credits are valued around $5 each. So the best way to spend your credit is to get a snack as close to this value as possible. You will find snacks in all kinds of values, varying from approx $2 to $6. Do yourself a favor and don’t spend your credit on a bottle of water. Water is free all over Disney World! Rather buy a good water filter and take that with you. It saves you money, the snack credit and it gives you tasty and healthy water. So what are good suggestions for Disney Dining Plan snacks? Here we give 5 examples of some mighty fine Disney snack options!
