Disney World Quick Tips - Don't waste those Snack Credits.

The number one rule you should follow with Disney Dining Plan Snack Credits is this!

Don’t buy drinks with it.

It’s an easy mistake to make. You’re tired and hot and probably don’t think twice about handing the cast member your room key card, but that drink only costs around $2.59.  If you purchased the dining plan, you probably did so to save money, and this move just put you in the red, at least as far as snacks go.  You can use your snack credits to buy more expensive treats or even put together a small meal if you’re careful.

Make sure you don’t use your snack credits for anything that costs less than $3.  Instead, pay out of pocket for those items.  To maximize your value on the dining plan, your goal should be to purchase snacks at around the $4 range or slightly lower.

For example you can buy a side of chilli at Casey’s Corner in the Magic Kingdom or a delicious cupcake (that is so huge, you can split it) at Starring Rolls Cafe in Hollywood Studios for just one snack credit. (See picture above)  Healthy snacks like fruit, yogurt, and small milks are great choices for keeping your energy levels up, but they generally cost less than $2.  Consider buying those items at a grocery store off-site or Garden Grocer delivery service (see a list of stores and delivery services here).

Even if you don’t have a refrigerator, individual cartons of shelf stable milk can be a huge savings if your kids are like mine and drink a ton of milk. Which reminds me did you hear the news? All WDW Value Resorts will now have a Fridge

The dining plan just got more expensive for 2012, but you can still beat the cost and make it work in your favor. You’ll just need to think it out a little bit beforehand. Stay tuned for more tips on how to make the dining plan work.

  1. White Bean Hummus and a bag of pita chips at the Mara quick service cafe in the Animal Kingdom Lodge was my favorite snack credit this past trip!
