    It has been reported on the TP board that someone was unable to use a snack credit last week to purchase a kaki gori. Has anyone else tried since FD started? What was your experience? TIA

    We just returned from a week at WDW and 2 x my son got a Kaki Gori at the Japan Pavillion and we successfully used snack credits both times.

    I will say the little snack credit ensignia that usually is posted was not posted on their menu board despite the fact they accepted it. Maybe this is why there is confusion?

    Thank you. Yes someone else had posted the the symbol is gone but the OP had specifically asked to use a snack credit and was denied. Anyone else?

    They should take a snacl credit! It is not like it takes a lot of $$ to make one of those! Confused...

    Anyone else? I was planning on getting a few of these!

    That's what I thought too, but the most recent AllEars menu shows them at $3.28. Apparently they went up by almost $1? :confused:

    Just to add on this, the 2 different times were two different days with two different cms serving. One was a Thursday and the other was a Sunday, so didn't want you all to think it was the same day with the same cm.

    Yes, they were indeed $3.28. We saw a ton of food price increases while we were there. Garden Grill and Biergarten were both up to $30.99 (up from $28.99). All of the ice cream carts increased while we were there too. Mickey bars were $2.75 one day and the next they increased to $3.25. Other ice cream options from the carts were even higher. I also remember reading counter service prices for the double bacon cheeseburger as $8.09 but when we arrived they were $8.59.

    I guess they are trying to make up some of the free dining cost by charging the paying customers more.


    As for the Kaki Goris, the little purple dining plan sign was definitely NOT listed on the menu anymore but they did let us use our snack credits on 8/22.

    What is or is not on the dining plan changes constantly. Last week at the Contemporary the granola yogurt was a snack, the same one at the Boardwalk was not a snack. Fruit cup bigger at the Contemporary then at the Boardwalk.

    I know that is why I try to keep the confirmed snack list as accurate as possible. The yogurt parfait had a significant increase in price last year & was removed as a snack option at many of the resorts. I'm surprised its an option at CR.
