It's pretty easy to find healthy options and to eat clean at most all of Disney's table service restaurants, but what about at the Quick Service locations in all the parks and resorts?
Well, it's not all cheeseburgers, chicken nuggets and french fries. There are LOTS of GREAT items that are available around Walt Disney World® Resort that are on the healthy side of the spectrum.
Disney realizes that many people choose to live a healthier lifestyle and would like to have cleaner food choices that includes fresh fruits, veggies, green salads and non-fried food options to enjoy whether at their resort hotel or in the parks.
I have compiled a list of items that you can find around Disney's "4" theme parks that you can use either a Quick Service meal credit or Snack credit for with your Dining Plan.
Tips: Disney does NOT distinguish between children and adults when it comes to quick service meals or snacks...they are one in the same. You can also use (1) Quick Service meal credit for (3) Snacks at a Quick Service location, but it has to be done all on one transaction. You will need to tell the Cast Member checking you out that you would like to exchange (1) Quick Service meal for (3) Snacks so that she pulls the correct credit entitlement from your dining plan.
Where can I find snacks?
You can typically find snack items at most food carts, stores and quick service restaurant locations in the parks, Disney resorts and around Disney Springs. If you are traveling to Epcot during the International Food and Wine Festival or the Flower and Garden Festival you can redeem snack credits at most food kiosks for a variety of fun tastings, but be sure to look for the DPP logo to be sure your dining plan is accepted at each location.
The general value of a "snack" credit is $5.00, but there are many things that you can use your snack credits for that would cost you more than $5 if you paid for them out of pocket.
