    Hello. If I choose any of the Disney Dining Plans, is it still possible to put money on your MyDisneyExperience, for small purchases of drinks or snacks? I am concerned a snack credit will be taken instead. Thanks.

    Hello, Joshua!

    Thanks for sending this great question to our Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    My family and I just returned from a long weekend visit to Walt Disney World, and we thoroughly enjoyed our Disney Dining Plan

    Using your Disney Dining Plan entitlements is easy, as you direct the Cast Member serving you to treat your selections as snacks on the plan or to charge it to your My Disney Experience account; both of these are linked to your MagicBand. Back at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you can pay down that account balance with a credit card, cash, or even Disney Gift Cards, should you wish to do so prior to checkout.

    When you are finished with each transaction, the receipt will reflect which entitlements were used. On the rare occasion that there is a mistake, and an entitlement was used instead of charging the cost of your item to your account, you can fix it right then.

    Even better, on the My Disney Experience Mobile app, you have the ability to check Disney Dining Plan usage, making it a breeze to ensure that you are using your entitlements the way that you had planned.

    The flexibility of choosing to use a snack entitlement for a water bottle, for example, or saving it for a little splurge such as a Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar, (clearly, I recommend the latter!) is just one of the great perks of using any of the Disney Dining Plans.

    Enjoy planning your stay, Joshua!

    Come back and ask us more questions, too. We love to help!
