Are all these snack credits?
How long are these available?
DFB Sarah says
Rachel, Disney hasn’t said how long the anniversary treats will be available. If we see this info, we’ll update!
DFB Sarah says
Lisa, typically special celebration treats ARE DDP snack credit eligible. When they come out, we’ll get confirmation.
DFB Sarah says
Jen, have a great trip!
I’ve been going to Hollywood Studios since it opened as MGM Studios and it didn’t even dawn on me that it 30 years old this year. You would think people would have heard about it more from Disney. Did it even dawn on Disney or is SWGE overshadowing everything?
Ashley C. says
We have to eat at Brown Derby every trip so the rest of my family can get the Cobb salads. I always end up ordering off the kids menu.
Does anyone know if the fried chicken at 50’s Prime Time Cafe compares to the Plaza Inn at Disneyland?? They have the BEST fried chicken and so far all the other Disney park restaurants don’t even come close. Would love to find some similar. Headed to DW in Sept.
