    Hello, I am planning a trip to WDW and we are getting the DDP for the first time. Can you upgrade a snack credit and pay the difference? For example: a waffle with powdered sugar is a snack but with fruit is a QS. Can I use a snack but pay for the fruit?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kyle!

    It's no secret around here that I am a huge fan of the Disney Dining Plan. I love traveling to Walt Disney World Resort knowing that my meals and snacks are fully taken care of and the only thing I have to worry about is getting full before I can try the next snack! Your family is going to love how easy and convenient it is when you try it for the first time on your vacation next year.

    One of the things I like most about the Dining Plan is how flexible it is. We especially love that we get access to all of our credits when we check in to our Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, so we can decide for ourselves how we'd like to use them over the course of our vacation. If there's a festival happening, like the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival that's happening now and will probably also be going on during your vacation, we love to use a bunch of our Snack credits at the outdoor kitchens to try all the special offerings. So while there is a lot of flexibility built into the Dining Plan, at this time it's not possible to use a Snack Credit to partially pay for a snack and pay the rest out of pocket. You can split checks between Dining Plan credits and another form of payment, but each item must be paid for in full by one single method. I have great news though if you're a waffle-crazy family on the Disney Dining Plan: Sleepy Hollow at Magic Kingdom Park has Mickey waffles with fruit available for a Snack credit! Make sure to stop by when you're in Liberty Square.

    Have a magical day, Kyle!
