Making the Most of the Disney Dining Plan- Part 3- Tuesday’s Tip

Do you enjoy flavors from around the world?

Tuesday’s Tip- Think about using your snack credits at Epcot’s world showcase!

I know from personal experience that the portion sizes on many Disney entrees are quite large.  My husband and I often end up sharing a snack, if and when we get them at all.  Don’t let those snack credits go to waste though! There is no stipulation on how and when you use your dining credits.

So let’s say you’re doing a 5 night, 6 day stay for 2 people.  Between the  two people you’ll have 10 snack credits (at minimum with the quick service plan).  You can use all 10 snack credits in one day if you wanted to.  Using those snack credits in the world showcase can not only be a  good value for your snack credits, but can also allow you to indulge in  the flavors from around the globe!

You can use your snack credits at many locations.  Just look for this logo, which indicates that it’s a snack on the dining plan

Here are some of my favorite snacks from the different countries-

Mexico- Churros with caramel sauce !!!!  At 3.99, that is a solid use of a snack credit!  These are available at La Cantina De San Angel

Norway- The sweet pretzel with chocolate is the best value at $4.49, but one of my favs is the School Bread.  It isn’t a great value as a snack credit at $2.69, but it sure is tasty! If you’re looking for something a little healthier, you can also use a snack credit on a salad with a $3.99 value. All of these options are available at the Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe.

China-  I am not a fan of Egg Rolls ($3.99), but this is one of the few options if you’re looking to use a snack credit in China.  You can also use your snack credits for iced and hot tea if you’re thirsty.  Prices on the tea range from $3.19 to $4.25.

Germany- You’ve got to do the Authentic pretzel in Germany!!!  Super yummy!  The price of $4.29 makes it another excellent value for the snack credit.  These are available at both Sommerfest and the pretzel carts.

Italy- Unfortunately there isn’t anything that I’ve seen that you can use the snack credit on here.  If you really want to try eating or drinking something here, you’ll pay out of pocket, but the gelato, cannoli, or a glass of wine would be my pick 🙂

The American Adventure- This one is easy for me… I’d have to go with the Jalepeño cream cheese stuffed pretzel!  The price of $4.29 makes it a great value, and so many other pavilions have sweets as their snack credits that this one is a nice change!  You can find this at the Fife and Drum Tavern.  If you want even more bang for you buck on a snack credit go with the chili cheese fries at Liberty Inn.

Japan- Mmmmmm sushi!  There are three sushi options all coming in at $4.98.  Yummy and an excellent snack credit value, found at the Kabuki Cafe.

Morocco- has one of my favorite snacks in the world showcase, the tangerine cous-cous salad.  I know it sounds weird but you can order this side dish and its super yummy.  Unfortunately, no snack credits are accepted in Morocco.  They also offer tabouli and hummus.  It’s a real bummer that they don’t take the snack credits, but out of pocket these snacks are only $2.99.

France- Welcome to the mother load of snack options!  The lobster bisque is the most valuable use of a snack credit as it is $4.90, but one of my favorites is the bacon and cheese roll.  There are TONS of snack options here, and you really can’t go wrong.  Everything is wonderful!

England- What would a trip to England be without Fish and Chips?  The fish and chips aren’t a snack credit, but you can get just the chips with the snack credit.  Only $2.69 it’s not the best snack credit value, but sure is tasty with some malt vinegar!

Canada-  There is no quick service restaurant in this pavilion and there is only one snack cart.  There you can use a snack credit on pop corn, but it isn’t unique to Canada.  My recommendation is to go in the gift shop and look for unique Canadian candies or treats that are imported.  Remember to look for the logo that indicates that it is a snack credit!
