    I purchased a deluxe dining plan. What is considered a snack? I don's want to end up using a table service meal for a little snack. Where are the best places to get snacks? Thanks

    Hi Susan!

    One of the best perks of the Disney Dining Plan is that it's so flexible and you've asked a great question about snacks!  I wouldn't worry about using a Table-Service entitlement for a Snack entitlement.  It's pretty hard to do that on accident, but if you do have leftover Table-Service entitlements at the end of your vacation, you can trade them for snacks instead.  But like you're assuming, it's not the best use of a Table-Service entitlement.

    So, what is considered a snack?  It would be practically impossible for me to list them all.  Basically, any bottled soda, water, Powerade, fountain soda, frozen slushies, ice cream novelties, scooped ice cream including sundaes at some locations, bagged chips, certain funnel cakes, popcorn, pretzels, churros, some side items at Quick-Service restaurants like fries, cupcakes, pastries, fruit, pre-packaged candy, Mickey rice cereal treats and so much more!  The best way to find out if an item is included as a Snack on the Disney Dining Plan is to look for the Snack logo on the menu.  These can be at Quick-Service restaurants, walk up food stops, food carts, popcorn and pretzel stands...basically anywhere that is not a Table-Service restaurant.

    Here are some of my favorite snacks when I'm on the Disney Dining Plan:
    Pineapple Float or Pineapple Dole Whip Cup at Aloha Aisle in Magic Kingdom Park  
    Fries with various toppings like macaroni and cheese or chili-cheese at Casey's Corner in Magic Kingdom Park
    Frozen Mint Julep Lemonade (seriously delicious) at Casey's Corner in Magic Kingdom Park
    Giant Mickey shaped donut (GREAT value for a snack) at The Lunching Pad in Magic Kingdom Park
    Massive ice cream sundaes (another GREAT value for a snack) at Plaza Ice Cream Parlor in Magic Kingdom Park
    Pulled Pork Cheese Fries at Flame Tree Barbecue in Disney's Animal Kingdom
    Pongu Lumpia (pineapple cream cheese spring rolls) at Pongu Pongu in Disney's Animal Kingdom
    Funnel Cakes at Epic Eats in Disney's Hollywood Studios
    Tons of options like fudge, cake pops, cupcakes, cookies and packaged candy at Goofy's Candy Kitchen in Disney Springs
    *Eligible snacks on the Disney Dining Plan are subject to change without notice.

    I know you'll enjoy whatever you choose to spend your Snack entitlements on!  Picking what you want is the hardest part.

    Please stop back by if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
