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 in the Downtown Disney area. If you are traveling to Epcot during Food and Wine Festival or the Flower and Garden Festival you can redeem snack credits at most food booths for most items. Just look for the DPP logo and you're all set!
The Disney brochure lists some examples of snacks as being: frozen ice cream, popcorn scoop, 12oz coffee, hot chocolate or hot tea, single-serviing prepackaged milk/juice, single piece of whole fruit, single-serving bag of snacks, 20oz bottle of water or Coke products or a 22oz fountain soft drink. While these options aren't bad, a snack credit is valued around $5.00, and there are sooo many more (and better) options available for you to use these credits. Let's take a look at what's available around the "World."
*Homemade ice cream sandwiches from Main Street Bakery in Magic Kingdom
*Cupcakes from Starring Rolls in Hollywood Studios..other treats available here at well
*Dole Whip-It may not be the best use as far as $$ but it's a great snack at Disney!
*Anything from the Boulangerie Patisserie in the France Pavillion in Epcot.
*Milkshakes/Malts from Beaches and Cream, located in the Beach & Yacht Club.
*DOH Bar from Cooke's of Dublin, Downtown Disney. It's a donut coated with Snickers or Mars bar and deep fried. I haven't tried this one, but they say it's fabulous!
*Zebradomes-Animal Kingdom Lodge
*Cinnamon rolls from Gaston's in Magic Kingdom (large enough for 2)
*Strawberry & chocolate crepe in France (Epcot)
*Germany (Epcot)-The candy store there has rice krispie treats covered in caramel and chocolate!
*Creme puffs in Norway (Epcot)
*Starbucks - Any size latte, most specialty drinks and assorted pastries. A $6 latte...why not?
"Snack" options that you could make a light meal out of:
*Croissant Jambon Fromage or Bisque de Homard from Boulangerie Pattisserie in Epcot. This is a ham and cheese croissant or a bowl of lobster bisque soup.
*Baked potato or baked sweet potato at Liberty Square Market in Magic Kingdom
*A bowl of chili from Casey's Corner
*Cucumber salad or bowl of chicken noodle soup at Cosmic Ray's
*Soup of the day at Sleepy Hollow Inn in Magic Kingdom
*Fruit and cheese plate at Sunshine Seasons in Epcot (located in the coolers)

*Egg roll - can be found in Adventureland in Magic Kingdom
*French Onion soup or Potato Leek soup at Be Our Guest
*Ceasar salad at Pinnochio Village Haus in Magic Kingdom
*Mixed vegetable cup with dip or hummus and chips
As you can see there are a lot of options, with lots of variety, to be found to redeem your snack credits for maximum value. So, do you really want to use these credits for a $1-2 piece of fruit or a $2-$3 bottled drink? You certainly can, but just know that it won't be the best value for your money.
