    I'm seeing conflicting info regarding the use of snack credits at Epcot. We plan to visit on 12/30 to catch the last day of Festival of the Holidays and sample the Holidays Kitchens; would we be able to use snack credits on some of the food items

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kimberly!

    I'm so glad you've come to ask about one of my favorite things: the holiday season at Walt Disney World Resort! I was just there last week for the very first Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party of the season and the debut of the brand new Christmas decorations at Disney's Animal Kingdom, and I'll be back again in a few weeks to check out the festivities that haven't quite started yet, like the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays!

    One of the things I love most about all of the festivals that take place at Epcot throughout the year is the delicious food. There are some incredible dishes that pop up for a limited time, so I always try to taste everything before each festival finishes! I often take advantage of the Disney Dining Plan if I'm planning on doing a lot of snacking at Epcot because the tasting-sized dishes at the festivals, including the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays, are available for a Snack credit. If the item you want to try has the purple and white Disney Dining Plan logo next to it on the menu, you can tap your MagicBand and purchase it with a Snack credit! You'll be able to try most Festival dishes this way, so it's time to start making your list and checking it twice!

    Have a magical day, Kimberly!
