    With the DDP what is considered a "snack"?

    Hi, Karen!

    Great question!

    Essentially, an item that can be purchased for a "Snack" entitlement on the various Disney Dining Plans at Walt Disney World is usually a non-protein-based item which sells for under $5 (subject to change) at many locations throughout the parks. This could be as simple as a bottle of water or as delectable as a carrot cake cookie (double-decker, as large as my fist, and filled with a sweet cream cheese layer that's indescribably good. And I'm not even a carrot cake fan) or a confectioner's sugar-coated freshly made (warm!) funnel cake. Yum and yum.

    The trick with utilizing your entitlements on a Disney Dining Plan is to get items which are really a treat, such as a delicious chocolate croissant for a quick breakfast on the go, or a set of custom-made, chocolate-dipped pretzel rods, made to your order. (Or a jalapeno cheese-stuffed soft pretzel, or a two-scoop waffle cone, or chocolate-filled crepes...) As you can imagine, there are many options, most of which fall under the $5 range as well as  non-protein based. (The exception to this non-protein thing is special creations during the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.)

    For an unofficial list of snacks on the Dining Plan at WDW, check out a great site,, and enter "snacks" into their search bar. You'll find lots of recent posts on additions to the list of snacks Guests have tried while using their snack entitlements.
