Rumored for Summer 2016 DATES to be ANNOUNCED in the coming days..
As well as some possible changes to the Quick Service Dining Plan-Dessert to be excluded with meal but an additional snack credit added…AGAIN rumors to begin with but the change has already been made to UK Dining Plan for 2017.
Snack credits. They come with your Dining Plan. They make you smile. Once you have chosen the Dining Plan that fits the needs of your family it’s time to map out the Snack Credit Attack Plan! The Quick Service and Regular Dining Plans both come with one credit but the Deluxe Dining Plan(my personal favorite) comes with two. So what’s the big deal about using those snack credits wisely? Simple..Mickey Ice Cream Bars! At least that’s a start. It is the very first snack credit used upon entering the Magic Kingdom for me. There is no ‘official’ list for the snack credit, but a symbol and most items under $5 are usually a clue. Now that Starbucks is located on Disney property at the Walt Disney World resort most of their coffee drinks are available for snack credit use. A snack credit can be any item from a bottle of water to a single scoop popcorn, a waffle at Sleepy Hollow or the coveted Dole Whip! Visit Epcot and wander over to the World Showcase and have a school bread in Norway, an egg roll in China or a churro in Mexico. Maybe a gelato in Italy or a chocolate croissant in France. Walk from Epcot to Hollywood Studios and head into Starring Rolls Bakery indulging in fan favorites the Red Velvet Cupcake or the Butterfinger Cupcake. Next door is Sweet Spells Confectionery, reveling in Disney Villains, where you can bite into a candy apple of all sorts(poison or non poison-old Disney joke;)) Walk down Sunset Boulevard to the end and pick up a scoop or two of ice cream from Hollywood Scoops. I have personally witnessed the biggest chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich in my entire life from there! Definitely some of the BEST ice cream on property. Find your way through the rainforest at Animal Kingdom Park and munch on a Mickey pretzel or Babycakes brand mini cupcakes(vegan/gluten free). Snack credits may be used anywhere the Dining Plan is taken including, Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach and Downtown Disney.
The snack options are unlimited! The Magic Kingdom is filled with goodies that will bring a smile to your face. Stop in the Main Street Confectionery and it’s like stepping into the world of Willy Wonka. Enter New Fantasyland and visit Big Top Treats featuring chocolate covered bananas, pineapple skewers, marshmallows… just about everything chocolate dipped!
Unofficial snack lists can be found on various sites. Never miss an opportunity to use one and if you plan carefully enough you may be able to have a Mickey Ice Cream Bar a day!
