Sorry, I know this is going to be rated as a stupid/ lame question but I just had to ask...
It's fun to maximize your snack credits by using them on higher-priced items, since the range of pricing on a snack item can vary widely. For some it's not just about the snack, but what that snack would have cost you if you paid OOP.

I have a question - I see some items on the "snack list" from restaurants that are not in the DDP brochure - such as Auntie Gravity's in MK and Fountainview in Epcot. Have there been updates to the restaurants - do more restaurants now accept DDP?

The brochures don't list all the places where you can get snacks with the dining plan credits, because there are too many to list. They only list the quick service and table service restaurants that accept the dining plan.

Which is a reason why the Confirmed Snack Thread is so useful. :-)

There's a section for Writer's Stop snacks in the first post...did you read or hear something else that led you to ask this question?

Looks to me like the wdwinfo page for Writer's Stop is not accurate.

There's several places showing images of the Writer's Stop menu with the DDP icon. Here's one from June 2011:

Week of Aug 22 I'll run in and confirm with my own eyes.

mickey waffles at MK's Sleepy Hollow

There is a post in this thread from back in January I think that says the waffles are no longer on the plan yet they are on the acceptable list above. Has anyone been able to get them as a snack on the plan in 2011?
TIA!

Was wondering if anyone has used a snack credit recently Wolfgang Puck's express for soup? When we were there in January we had to pay oop and there was a sign that said that soup was not available on the meal plan. Not even as an entree.

Doesn't look like the waffles are on the DDP any longer. According to the menus I have found the waffles are no longer a SC but the funnel cake, soup (almost everything else) is. If we are in that area in October I plan on checking it out.

Silly first time DDP noob question. I take it since there's a need for this thread that all snack options are not marked as suggested in the 2011 Dining Catalog where it says;

"Look for this symbol to identify Quick-Service restaurants, outdoor food carts and select merchandise locations that accept your Disney
Dining Plan and to identify eligible snack options. You may redeem your snacks at most Quick-Service restaurants, outdoor food carts and
merchandise locations selling frozen ice cream novelties, popcorn or Coca-Cola® products throughout the Walt Disney World® Resort."

I was unaware that there were so many options.

Sooooo my question is, are snacks marked with the appropriate symbol or do I need to print this list, lol. Thanks!

If their is NO ddp symbol next to item I suggest you ask , and you may get one answer and someone else another as it varies with the CM!!!!But if it is single serve and under $4 you have a good shot at getting it !!

Both

The labeling is pretty good almost everywhere, but there are some cases where things aren't labeled and this list helps you seek them out and ask. The list also helps you plan specific snacks you may want to help maximize your snack credit value.
