    How does one know where one can use one's snack credits before one's Disney World trip? I looked up youtube videos but when I went on disney.com; a lot of the recommendations are at places which don't accept dining plans.

    Hey there, Kayli! It sounds like you are a planner, like most of us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, so we totally understand wanting to know where you can use those snack credits when you are at Walt Disney World

    The honest to goodness answer is that you have so many options with the Disney Dining Plan when it comes to snack credits, it's really tough to list all the options and all the places. There are kiosks, food courts, quick service locations, food carts - you really will be able to walk up to so many places to use your credits.

    For example, just walking down Main Street, U.S.A. in the Magic Kingdom, you can use your snack credits at the Main Street Popcorn Cart, the Main Street Confectionary, the Main Street Bakery - featuring Starbucks, Casey's Corner, and the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor. Even with that long list, I may have missed a spot or two, and we haven't even reached Cinderella Castle yet!

    Some restaurants, like the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor, may say that the dining plan is not accepted when you look at them online. However, restaurants that don't serve a regular meal will say that. So if a location only has snack type items, you may see that it doesn't accept the dining plan, because you can't use a meal credit there - only a snack credit.

    It's usually pretty clearly marked on an item if it's a snack on the dining plan. That will also help you figure out how to use those credits.

    Happy snacking, Kayli!
