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 $5.
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. Berry Cream Puff
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. Star Wars Desserts
Most if not all Star Wars themed dessert options at the Backlot Express including themed cupcakes are well over $5. And they’re delicious!
You can get these from Backlot Express in Hollywood Studios.
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!
6. Seasonal Milkshakes
Minn and Bill’s Dockside Diner in Hollywood Studios by far has the best seasonal milkshakes. The all time favorite has to go the cinnamon churro milkshake of course.
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.
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.
Most if not all seasonal and special cupcakes are over $5. So really the hardest part is just choosing the best most delicious one out there.
I like the cupcakes from both Starring Rolls Cafe and ABC Commissary in Hollywood Studios. The one picture above is a Pink Lemonade Cheshire Cat Cupcake. Really good!
10. 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.
