Maximizing Disney Snack Credits

Adding one of Disney’s Dining Plans to your vacation package will give you Snack Credits to use during your stay. These credits can be redeemed for many things, ranging from a bottle of water, to a delicious cupcake…or even a bowl of soup! Using a credit to get a bottle of water would NOT be maximizing that credit. We want to show you a few of our favorite snacks to get so you can enjoy your dining plan as much as we do!

First, snacks can be found all throughout the parks, water parks, Disney Springs and resorts. You will find them at snack carts, kiosks or Counter Service Restaurants. To be sure you know what your snack credit will cover, always look for this symbol, which means that it requires only 1 snack credit redeemed for that item:

To the left is the menu at Sleepy Hollow, a Quick Service Restaurant at Magic Kingdom. Above, is the zoomed in version of that menu so you can see all the snack credit symbols.

Snack options are constantly changing, so be sure to pay attention to our social media accounts when we post about new, fun snack options. Here is a helpful list to get you started. This by no means is all of the options, but just some of the popular ones that are worth trying!


The famous Dole Whip! This comes in several flavors, classic option being pineapple. They can be found in multiple locations in Magic Kingdom, primarily at Aloha Isle.

Some of the popular themed treats (these are for a limited time only):

The Cheshire Cat Tail is found at Cheshire Cafe. Tip – this location typically closes about 3 hours prior to park closing. Don’t wait too late for this!

LeFou’s Brew without the souvenir cup can be purchased with a snack credit in Gaston’s Tavern. It is a frozen apple juice drink with hint of marshmallow flavor…warning it is SWEET!

This warm cinnamon roll can be found at Gaston’s Tarven as well. It is unique in that it has a very slight hint of maple flavoring.
