    What do you do with all the snack credits you are given. There are 5 of us staying 7 nights and we each have 14 snack credits. Can they be traded for quick service credits? Thanks

    Welcome, Tommy!

    I like that you're starting to resEARch your Disney Dining Plan options. Dining around Disney is actually becoming it's own reason to visit Walt Disney World Resort, with whole articles of the Disney Parks Blog dedicated to the newest Best Bites and Sweet Treats. I like to say that Disney is becoming an Eat Park, too!

    I love Disney Dining Plan Snack entitlements. They can be used for a whole variety of eats like ice cream, cupcakes, jumbo soft pretzels, soda, and more. While multiple snack entitlements cannot be combined to become bonus Quick-Service meals, you can find quite a few entree-like snack items that could serve as smaller meals. This way you can use two meal entitlements to dine at a Signature Dining Location and not have to pay out of pocket to make up for the meals you combined.

    For breakfast you could enjoy a Warm Cinnamon Roll at Gaston's Tavern, a Lunch Box Tart at Woody's Lunch Box, or any size speciality coffee beverage at the in-park Starbucks locations. You can also find lite lunch and dinner bites like the Mac & Cheese cups at Eight Spoon Cafe or the Croissant Jambon Fromage (a ham and cheese croissant sandwich) at Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie. You can even make your own progressive meal by redeeming one snack on a substantial item like soup, and use another on a traditional side like fries, and a third for your beverage.

    One of my favorite fan-spired places to get the scoop about the best Disney Dining Plan uses is the Disney Food Blog. And bonus, a few of the writers are former Moms Panelists!

    We'll See You Real Soon, Tommy!
