DFB Newsletter

But this event, which is marking its 20th anniversary this year, is more than just the biggest food event on the Disney calendar. It also ushers in some of the most wonderful times of the year to visit Disney!

And with Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, the Festival, and other Fall and Winter Holiday treats around the bend, you won’t want to miss a single picture, description, or bite of the yum.

So there’s never been a better — or more important — time for dedicated Disney Food Fans to be clued in to the very best source for all of your Disney Food News.

And that’s why you should join the DFB Newsletter today!

But I read Disney Food Blog Everyday. Do I Really Need the DFB Newsletter, Too?

How Using Your Disney Dining Plan at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival Just Got Better

We all know it: having the Disney Dining Plan while visiting the Epcot Food and Wine Festival can be pretty awesome.

Because, after all, in the past, you could save up your snack credits and use them to Eat Your Way Around the World. And the only thing better than the Food and Wine Festival is enjoying it for the price of your already-purchased Disney Dining Plan!

But if you can believe it, using your Disney Dining Plan at the Food and Wine Festival just got even better. Recent changes in how Disney Dining Plan credits can be spent will make enjoying all that the Food and Wine Marketplace Booths have to offer even more fun than before.

Want to know more about how to use your Disney Dining Plan at the Epcot Food and Wine Festival? Read on!

Turn Your Quick Service Meals Into Food and Wine Booth Eats!

This is probably the most exciting change to the Disney Dining Plan: you can now use your Quick Service Meal Credits to purchase up to three different snacks, and call it a meal!

Swap your Counter Service Credit for Snack Credits and get more of these.

There are rules about the way this works, however. In order to swap your Quick Service Meal Credit for snacks, you have to do it all in one transaction. So unfortunately, that means you can’t go to the Hawai’i Booth and order something, then mosey over to the Belgium Booth for something else.

But if you think about it in terms of your group or family pooling credits, it’s just a matter of logistics. After all, you can use Dad’s credits at the Canada Booth so that everyone can have their own Canadian Cheddar Cheese Soup. Then use Mom’s for three different items at another booth. And really — that’s pretty awesome. Because that soup has been known to incite family spoon feuds.
