Hiya Disney Addicts. I have some very exciting gossip. Many of you have said that you would love to be able to change your dining plan credits in for snacks. Well that might be a possibility here very soon, but of course with that come some not so magical changes. You can’t have it all right? So, the pixie dust gods have listened and you may now have more flexibility on how to use your entitlements on the Disney Dining Plan.
Check it out and let me know what you think?
As of May 31, the changes are as follows:
Expanded Snack entitlements; Meal entitlements may be used as Snack entitlements (in select locations only).
The following will be included as of May 31, 2015, as eligible Snack entitlements for Guests with DDP:
- All single-serve non-alcoholic beverages that are not in a souvenir container (single serve is equal to or less than one liter and excluding beverages sold at recreation counters)
- All ice cream novelties; All hand-scooped ice cream offerings, including sundaes that do not exceed two (2) scoops or are not served in souvenir container
- Additional items considered single-serve previously excluded are now included, such as Caramel or Candy Apple (with or without peanuts, excludes character-inspired apples), large Mickey Cookie, Tin Mints (1.5 oz), fresh-popped, scooped popcorn (only applies to Big Top Souvenir and Karamell-Kuche locations). Note: Pre-bagged popcorn of any kind is no longer included in the Dining Plan.

Yes. If the item falls within the guidelines stated within the updated business rules, then it is considered a Snack, regardless of the price.

No. The only popcorn considered a Snack is fresh-popped and scooped by the location.
