    I think this may have changed from the information I have. Is it only certain items now or is it anything upto a certain value?

    I think it's any snack up to either $3 or $4, but I'm not positive. Johnie is there now and she'll know for sure and can tell you when she gets back :yes:

    I do believe it's $4 and under. :yes: We'll wait for our Johnie (or someone else with a better understanding of the plan than I) to come along and confirm. :yes:

    Last I read was under $4, non-alcoholic and a single serving package/portion.

    They usually identify the DDP-eligible snacks with an icon on the menu boards and shelf labels.

    I swear they change the DDP every time we come! It does seem to be most things under $4....but single serving fruit (like an apple for $1) is considered a snack.

    We found out this evening that you can use the CS credit at Toluca Turkey Legs at DHS.

    Well, the apple is under $4, but might not be the best use of a snack credit. :shrug:

    :lol:

    The really strange thing is you can use your snack credits at the food kiosks at the food and wine festival regardless of price. They will let you get the $7 lobster roll with your snack credit!

    OK I missed the lobster rolls!!! I'll have to go back now! :lol:

    But the F&W festival was an excellent way to use up credits for good value, that's for sure! :yes:

    I didn't even try the lobster roll this year....wasn't impressed a couple of years ago.

    Those dumplings in China were TDF!! Too bad we couldn't use the snack credits for the mango slushie thing!

    OOOOOOOOOOH That reminds me...I have to order a package of the dip everyone enjoyed...not sure I'll make it back up to Vermont before NYE to buy more...but I can order it from their website...

    So, if the F&W Festival is not in full swing during your visit...another good use of the snack credits is for the soft serve ice cream which typically runs juts under $4. We don't *usually* use our SC for water or soda...but if we are getting near the end of our trip and still have quite a few left, we will.
