Did you know that heavily discounted snacks at Walt Disney World is actually possible?
It’s true! Let me explain.
In case you didn’t know, a snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan is worth around $6 to $7.
But one great thing about Disney World snacks is that they very greatly in prices. Some are cheaper. And some are more expensive.
That’s why it’s really important to know when to use your DDP snack credits and when to use cash.
So as a way to truly maximize your Disney Dining Plan snack credits, you should aim to find snacks that are over $5 that way you’re not leaving money on the table.
But don’t worry, I’ll show you just how to do it in this comprehensive and super simple guide!
Best Disney Dining Plan Snacks
Here are the best snacks to maximize the Disney Dining Plan (all of which are over $5):
1. Dole Whip Float
When you get a Dole Whip, make sure to get a float. It’s a little more expensive plus you get fresh pineapple juice with it!
You can get this from Aloha Isle at Magic Kingdom or the Pineapple Lanai at the Polynesian Resort.
2. The “Plaza” Sundae
Freshly made waffle bowls and scooped ice cream topped with whipped cream hot fudge (or warm peanut butter). Pure perfection.
I dare you to walk past the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor in MK and not be temped to get one of these bad boys.
3. Mickey Pretzel with Cheese Sauce
One thing people tend to forget is that with a snack credit, you can get both a Mickey Pretzel and a cheese sauce.
4. Night Blossom
Apple and desert pear limeade slush topped with passion fruit boba balls. It’s honestly one of the best if not the best slushee you can get at Disney. The taste is so unique but delicious. (Pongu Pongu)
5. Funnel Cake with Sugar
You can actually get funnel cakes with sugar as a snack credit. Although the one I had (pictured above) includes ice cream, the one with just powder sugar is just as delicious!
Get this from the Funnel Cake Cart at the America Pavilion in Epcot and Sleepy Hollow in Magic Kingdom.
6. Green or Blue Milk
I don’t care what people say but I actually enjoy both the blue and green milk that you can get from Star Wars Land. Plus at around $7 to $8 a cup, it’s a great use of your snack credit if you don’t actually feel like eating something.
You can get this at the Milk Stand inside Star Wars Land in Hollywood Studios.
7. Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich
Just make sure that you get an ice cream cookie sandwich from Magic Kingdom and not Hollywood Scoops at Hollywood Studios because it’s actually more expensive at MK.
You can get this from both Tamu Tamu Refreshments in Animal Kingdom and the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor in Magic Kingdom.
8. Rootbeer Float
Barq’s root beer and soft serve vanilla make this a great cold treat on a hot Orlando summer day.
You can get this from Anandapur Ice Cream Truck at Animal Kingdom and Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies in Magic Kingdom.
And as an alternative, there’s always the Peter Pan Float that is made with lime ice cream and Sprite.
You can find this at Story Book Treats at Magic Kingdom.
9. Cheshire Cat Tail
A warm chocolate filled danish twist topped with icing.
You can get this from the Cheshire Cafe at Magic Kingdom.
10. Tarte aux Fraises
By far the best dessert at Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie at Epcot. And yes, it’s better than the schoolbread.

Found your post via Pinterest. Good suggestions! I’ll be sure to try some of these next WDW trip. I’d also add the cinnamon bun at Gaston’s Tavern in MK and any of the delicious pastries from the France pavilion in EPCOT.
With the exception of the pretzel, these were all desserts. I was looking for more savory snacks. I don’t know if it’s a deal or not, but the snacks we are looking forward to next time we go in December ’17 are the kung pao egg roll and peach oolong boba tea at Joy of Tea in China Pavillion in Epcot. Would be nice to see some more savory options. One can easily overload on sweets in WDW.
the fried rice next to Yak & Yeti in Animal Kingdom is a really good one!
Eight Spoons Cafe in Animal Kingdom serves baked macaroni and cheese as a snack credit. The baked mac and cheese with pulled pork is about $6.30 and the mac and cheese with shrimp and sweet chili sauce is about $6.50. This was our favorite find last trip and we can’t wait to go back this year.
I heard the cheese tots at Friar’s Tuck were snack credits! This is kind of old-but maybe some are still valid snack credits…
All four parks have a Starbucks in them now. You can get a venti coffee with up to 2 extra shots of espresso for one snack credit.
I can’t understand why the snacks all seems to be junk food. Not looking forward to using my snack credits that way.
I’ve been spending today looking up restaurants, making reservations, and planning our itinerary. I’m a little confused about the snacks. The list here doesn’t seem to be “a scoop of popcorn, popsicle” etc so this is pretty awesome that snack credits can be used “outside the box.” Is there a list of restaurants and what Disney Dining Plan snacks they have? Alternatively, a list of snacks and what restaurants they can be found out? Your list was very helpful, thank you!
I always turn to dfbguide, either on youtube, or their website to find that kind of info. I’ve also had some luck looking at the “all restaurants” link on the main disney.go.com website and narrowing it down to DDP selections
Great ideas – but I understand that Storybook Treats does not participate in the Dining Plan, so would be unable to use snack credits on that one!

The Berry Cream Puff at Kringla Bakeri in the Norway Pavilion at Epcot has not been available for at least a year or so. I’ve asked guest relations multiple times to please bring it back!
Aloha Isle no longer participates in the dining plan, so you can’t get the dole whip float or the pineapple upside down cake there.
