What is your best use of snack credits?

Chilli cheese fries (pecos biils, cosmic rays in MK or Liberty Inn in Epcot)

We mostly used them for ice cream snacks last time, but in the fall, I plan to use them at the food and wine festival for our more pricey items ($4+) and pay OOP for the cheaper snacks we eat.

We were with my SIL a few trips ago and she used some for water.   That killed me.

Yeah, that would kill me. Now, last year we only got snacks with the credits, though, so we were not spending out of pocket for them (except the three snacks I took home to the kids from the create your own at the goofy candy co, but they wouldn't have been covered anyway).

We never get ice cream at the parks. It never turns out well for us. Kids drop it, starts to melt. Then the tears start. Nothing sadder than a kid crying over a dropped mickey pop at disney.

We save ice creams and desserts for the buffets. Since we drive we bring cookies, cakes, etc from home.

Did you know if you drop one, they will replace it? When we were there, it was February, but the weather was hotter than normal forFlorida- several 90 degree days. 

I got hooked on Nestlea Nibs (or dibs??) while we were there. They are little bite size ice cream bites with a hard shell coating. Less likely to melt in your hand, and a lot less messy to eat. They had them at most of the carts.

We always do deluxe dining and I always use one credit a day on a Smart Water. They are really expensive, I always take the more expensive option.

Your the second person who told me that yet one time my daughter knocked hers off when she was little the CM (kiosk in tomorrowland) gave us extra napkins as it got on her shirt but didn't offer us another. And she was in tears.

I think those thinks are called dibs and they come in the covered little cup but my kids aren't really fans. Now that we have the no ice cream rule they are used to it.

Those things are like $4 each. I'm okay with those but somehow the 10 cent bottle of regular water kills me.
