    For the 2017 dining plan, is there an available list of what constitutes a snack? For quick service beverages, is it any beverage (e.g. smoothie, bottled drink, ice slushy) included in a 'quick service meal' or just fountain beverages?

    Hi Brittany!

    I love getting the Disney Dining Plan when we visit. It saves much and time. The 2017 Disney Dining Plan brochure is a helpful guide that outlines what's included in the plan. There have been a few changes to the 2017 Disney Dining Plan, one of which is that two snacks per day are now available instead of one!

    Many items can be considered a "snack" and they are marked on the menu with a special purple icon. There are three general guides when considering what can be considered a snack:

    1. The item must be a single serve item. For example, you will find Disney Chip & Dale Pretzels throughout the parks and resorts. There are usually two sizes, "family size" and "fun to share". The "family size" option is not allowed as a snack item, but the "fun to share" is. 

    2. The item can not be served in a souvenir bucket or cup. For example, you can get the popcorn that is served at the snack kiosks and is served in the paper container, but you cannot get the popcorn served in the souvenir bucket. The same rule applies to drinks, you can use your "beverage" for any non-alcoholic drink, as long as it doesn't come in a souvenir cup. If the restaurant serves smoothies, you can use your beverage credit for a smoothie, as long as it doesn't come in a souvenir cup.

    3. The snack item must not cost more than $5.00. For example, you can't use your snack credit for a turkey leg, but you can use a snack credit for a Dole Whip.

    You can view the Dining Plan FAQ for more information.
