    Hi Moms - Got the dining plan and visiting AK, MK and HS. What are the best snack options on the plan that you have had? Looking for something other than the reg popcorn, ice cream bar, sodas etc from the carts. Looking to get the best items for my $$$.

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lisa! I hope you've eaten before you read this answer because you might feel hungry when you're finished. Snacking at Walt Disney World Resort is one of my absolute favorite things to do, and I could go on all day about all of the different options that are available for you to try. Let's chat about the three theme parks you're visiting, and the different kinds of snacks you can get there to get the most out of your Disney Dining Plan credits.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom is my favorite theme park, and one of the reasons I love it so much is because it has some really unique and adventurous food to try. When you're walking through Asia on your way to Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, stop by Mr. Kamal's for some seasoned fries with a selection of savory sauces to choose from. I talk about it a lot, but the Baked Macaroni and Cheese with Shrimp and Sweet Chili Sauce from Eight Spoon Café is one of my favorite ways to spend a Snack credit, and you really can't go wrong with the Pimento-Cheese BLT at The Smiling Crocodile. I usually save up a few Snack credits to use when I'm at Disney's Animal Kingdom because the snacks are just too good to pass up!

    Disney's Hollywood Studios is the place to go for all of your favorite classic snacks. If you have a craving that only something Mickey-shaped can satisfy, you're going to find it all right here. If you have a sweet tooth, Epic Eats is going to be the place for you because you can get a few different kinds of Funnel Cake there! This treat is actually one of the highest-value items you can get for a Snack credit, so it's a great thing to order if you're really looking for some bang for your buck.

    Finally, Magic Kingdom Park is the perfect place to try a new twist on the snacks you just can't leave without getting. My husband is obsessed with the Pineapple Upside Down Cake from Aloha Isle, which is a piece of moist, delicious, tropical-flavored cake topped with Pineapple Dole Whip on top! The Lunching Pad is home to a rotating menu of flavored stuffed pretzels, and I love grabbing a Cream Cheese Warm Stuffed Pretzel and a Space Ranger Slush before I go find a spot for the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade.

    I hope this answers your question, Lisa, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation!
