    I'm planning a September trip and was lucky enough to score the Quick Service Dining plan. I haven't done the dining plan in years. Can use a snack credit at the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain in Disney Springs for an item like a banana split. Thanks.

    Hi, Scott!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    After spending some time (and money) shopping at Disney Springs, I love to relax with a sweet treat!  Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop is one of my favorite places to stop for a delicious snack.  Their menu has so many enticing options to choose from!

    Your Disney Dining Plan will be accepted at Ghirardelli Soda Fountain at Disney Springs.  The amount of dining plan entitlements required varies depending on the cost of what you order.  I spoke on the phone to a Cast Member at Ghirardelli Soda Fountain.  She explained to me that some larger priced orders will require a quick-service meal entitlement, while other items may qualify as snacks on the Disney Dining Plan.  Some of these snack items like a banana split or other higher priced sundaes will require two snack credits, but there are also some lower priced items that you would only need to use one snack entitlement for.

    Did you know that there are often Cast Members handing out free chocolate samples in the Ghirardelli Chocolate Shop?  Be sure to check that out while you are there.

    Wishing you a sweet visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
