  • I also saw that Cheshire Cats Tails were added in Fantasyland! They look cute AND delicious <3

  • Sandra,

    After dozens of visits using DDP, that’s not my experience. If the menu doesn’t have the Snack Credit designation, it isn’t accepted. And many snack kiosks don’t.

  • Jerry, I have noticed that locations selling only snack items, not full meals, all say “no dining plans accepted.” They do, however, accept snack credits. I know that is confusing but it seems to be just the way they have things categorized.

  • You indicate that the open face BLTs at Smiling Crocodile are 1 snack credit on DDP. But website for this indicates no Dining Plan accepted.

  • Will these be regular menu items or are they for a limited time only?

    • Hi Shannon, the Buffalo Chicken Hotdog is a limited-time offering, as the specialty hotdog at Casey’s Corner changes every month! The rest of the offerings should be around for a while, though our menus do change from time to time. 🙂

  • Where are the DLR best bite mentions? We have some awesome food out here on the West Coast that deserves to be featured!

  • Is the Sci-fi Dine In Falafel Burger patty gluten free?

  • Does the Smiling Crocodile have gluten free versions of their open-faced sandwiches?
