We see our fans post all the time about having extra snack credits at the end of their trip. Another topic that comes up is how to stretch out the meals when you have a Signature Meal, or Dinner Show Meal, booked under your Disney Dining Plan. Here is some great information for maximizing your snack credits at the Animal Kingdom Food Kiosks.
The Eight Spoon Cafe, an Animal Kingdom Food Kiosk, has a menu with every single item being a snack credit covered under the Disney Dining Plan. The Baked Macaroni & Cheese with Shrimp and Sweet Chili Sauce, at $6.49, is a great deal for the use of a snack credit. We love the portion size of the Baked Macaroni & Cheese with Pulled Pork and, at $6.29, this is also a good option. If you are traveling with little ones, the plain Baked Macaroni & Cheese, at $4.29, is still a decent use of a snack credit. We recommend grabbing a free iced water or purchasing a beverage so as not to use a snack credit on a $3.00 item. This kiosk is a great option for a light lunch when your meal credits are running low.
The Smiling Crocodile , another Animal Kingdom Food Kiosk, offers snack-sized open-faced sandwiches. At $5.29-$5.49, these little toasted ciabatta bread sandwiches, while not the best use of a snack credit, will work as a snack choice during the day. The Turkey BLT offers a decent portion of turkey providing a bit of protein to fill you up. The Salmon BLT is quite salty and if you are not a fan of Smoked Salmon, this one is not for you.
Caravan Road food kiosk offers some interesting snack choices. Edamame is a good option for feeling full on pure protein, but at $3.99, it is not really the best use of a snack credit. The Teriyaki Beef Slider is very flavorful even though the portion size is quite small. The best option here is the Asian Noodle Salad. At $6.99, this filling salad is a good use of a snack credit.
Mr. Kamal’s offers snack-sized food options. As portion sizes go, this food kiosk does not turn out to be a good choice for a replacement meal. However, if you order the Samosa, along with something else from another food kiosk, you can make a small meal out of it.
Terra Treats offers Buffalo Chicken Wings for $5.99, which is a pretty good use of a snack credit. For an allergy-friendly option, the flavored Chirps Chips and Rice Chips, at $6.69 each, provide a great snack option for allergy conscious individuals.
Cast Member Zayda was incredibly sweet and very helpful. Terra Treats, an Animal Kingdom Food Kiosk, used to be the only kiosk you could find allergy-friendly snack options. The popular allergy-friendly doughnuts and bagels, that used to be available at Terra Treats, can now be found directly across the walkway at Starbucks. You can also find allergy-friendly muffins and bagels at Harambe Marketplace. These changes took place about 6 weeks ago so that folks with allergies would have snack options spread out around the Animal Kingdom, rather than just at one location. All restaurants have allergy-friendly menus as well. Guests are encouraged to ask about these options at each location as they are not necessarily listed on the posted menus.
When you are utilizing the Disney Dining Plan on a tight budget, it is great to know that you can choose snacks that go beyond the standard ice cream, popcorn, and pretzels. Using your snack credits wisely allows you to obtain the best use of your money spent on your Walt Disney World vacation. Maximizing your Disney Dining Plan Snack Credits at the Animal Kingdom Food Kiosks is certainly one way to get the best bang for your buck while creating a meal out of a snack option.
