    Hi If you visit one of the smaller food stalls I notice that they don't accept the dining plan snack credits, do they take card payments or are these cash only? Thanks

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sarah!

    I'm a firm believer that one of the best parts about a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is the food, and finding small food booths and dining locations around the theme parks and seeing what delicious new treats they have is one of my favorite ways to spend a day. Some of the all-time best snacks can be found at some of these hidden gem locations, like Mr. Kamal's Seasoned Fries at Mr. Kamal's, which is right outside the entrance to UP! A Great Bird Adventure at Disney's Animal Kingdom, or the Cheshire Cat Tail from Cheshire Café at Magic Kingdom Park!

    When you want a snack from one of these locations, I encourage you to ask the Cast Member serving you if what you want qualifies as a Snack on the Disney Dining Plan. Some dining locations are listed on the Walt Disney World Resort website as not participating in the Dining Plan, meaning they don't have any Quick-Service or Table-Service meals available to be ordered, but they often still have Snacks that are Dining Plan eligible! You can also check the menu while you're there for the purple and white Disney Dining Plan logo, which indicates that a treat can be enjoyed for a Snack credit. Pretty much all dining locations accept card payments as well as MagicBands, but it's always a good idea to have a little bit of cash on-hand just in case.

    Have a magical day, Sarah!
