Dessert option on dining plan
 
Can you get a shake or smoothie in most places as a dessert option on the dining plans?

What are some of the most expensive snacks one can find at the park. Any must haves?

I know for sure you can get a shake at SCI FI - I did last summer and I even asked for it to go, I'm guessing you'd have to check with the restaurant and first see if they even have shakes on the menu!

It probably depends on the restaurant. Those owned by Disney are more likely to allow this, whereas those that are operated by a third party tend to be much stricter. I think you can get a milkshake as your dessert at WCC.

Assuming you're looking for the most expensive snacks that can be purchased on the dining plan, you can look at this thread of confirmed snacks. Also, if you're going during F&W, historically we've been able to use snack credits for any of the non-alc food and beverages. Here's the thread:

Shakes and smoothies are not available at all restaurants. You will have to ask at any that have them to see if you can order one as your dessert. I know some of the Disney owned restaurants allow it as your beverage - the 2 mentioned previously and 50's Prime Time are the most commonly mentioned.

Again, this is what I've been preaching about the last few weeks. Why are you asking what the most expensive snacks are? Why does it matter? It matters to you because you're trying to maximize the value of the dining plan -- which is almost impossible to do these days. So instead of getting something you'd truly enjoy or want, you'll instead aim for something that's 'expensive".

Hmmm, don't see what is wrong with the question:confused3 Maybe if the most expensive is also one of your top three favs..then go with the most expensive rather than another option that you love that is the cheapest, b/c when you are out of credits you then buy your 2nd and 3rd favs out of pocket b/c they are the cheapest. Why not get the most bang for your buck and if you want to eat something you don't like b/c it is the most expensive then so be it. I know my dad is a total bargain guy and probably would eat something he liked less if he felt like he was getting a better deal. To each their own.

I have seen a couple comments like this, not just from you. But I wonder why even bother responding if you have nothing to value to add to the posters question??

I have a pre~teen boy who is in that eat everything stage...I prefer to use the dinning plan to pay for the higher priced things he will eat then pay out of pocket for the cheaper things he is going to want to eat also. I don't feel bad about doing this as I know for a fact my dh, my dd, my 11 year old ds (who I have to pay for an adult meal plan for whom will pick meals off of the childs menu because he has yet to reach the stage of eating my oldre son has yet) and myself will not eat enough food for the cost of the plan, but like the security of having our eating expenses mostly paid for.

I know of one thing that was kind of expensive and I couldn't believe you could actually get it for just a snack credit is the Ham and Cheese Croissant sandwich at the France bakery in Epcot. The sandwich is very big. Or it was before they refurb'd the bakery. I haven't seen any of the offerings since they reopened. But it was a meal sized sandwich for just a snack credit.

Another high priced snack you can get is a Funnel cake in MK. MK is the only park where you can use a snack credit for a funnel cake because in Epcot the funnel cakes are $over 5.00.

To me the best snack option is the Napoleon at the France bakery in Epcot. It is my personal favorite treat in all of WDW. DOle Whip floats are a pretty good value for a snack credit too. They are all $5 options.

If people are looking to maximize the value of their dining plan, that is their business. It's really the only way to get any substantial savings from these plans anymore.

In our experience, a lot of the Disney-owned restaurants will let you get a shake or a smoothie as your non-alcoholic beverage option (instead of soda, tea or coffee) plus get a dessert too. Among other places, we've done that at The Wave, The Turf Club, and Kona Cafe. If your server doesn't mention it, just ask.

We stayed at All Star movies last Sept. I know we were surprised at our hotel last year by the giant cookie sandwiches. The cookies we huge to begin with. If you order 1 it counts as a snack, but you get 2 with the ice cream sandwich and then they added 3 scoops of ice cream to them. We cut ours into 4 and shared it because it was monstous. lol. It was super delicious! I highly recommend trying it.

This!! It was my mothers favorite. She was rather disappointed when we went to POFQ and they did not allow you to get the ice cream cookie sandwich as a dessert with the DDP. I don't understand why there is no continuity between restaurants as to what is or isn't allowed.
