Hey we go in 6 days and I'm getting the final bits together for our trip. We are staying for two weeks my only concern is running out of money. Is it expensive to shop and buy snacks on site? We have the Disney dining plan so sit down meals are covered but snacking through the day may become expensive. So is it expensive?

Like the others said, you'll be surprised at the amount of food you get at meals we used some snack credits on water and had some left over. Of course that was before I heard of Dole Whips, the bakery, the candy apples and other goodies MWers have shown me here. Maybe I need more money!! Lol - lala03  76.5 #85 11:19AM
Depending on what ddp you got , they include snacks and you will be surprised at how much food you get with ddp we sometimes feel like we had too much lol as far as shopping that just depends on what you want I find that there is a lot that is affordable just depends what your looking to buy , no matter what you will have a blast:) - tracsant  1495.6 #2 10:29AM
The dining plan also includes snacks. I found with the dining plan you get so much food that you don't want that many snacks. You can also shop near by at Win Dixie for extra snacks. - Pooh147856  360.5 #24 10:31AM
That's what we have found too - 5disneylovers  1158.7 #6 4:32PM
You will be fine with the dining plan.  As far as spending on extras, it's all up to how much you buy.  Just keep in mind most of the stuff in the stores can be bought at the Disney online store after you get home, there are some things that you cannot. - DizneyGirl  959.5 #8 11:04AM
We went to a shop at Down town Disney where they had affordable stuff. It was 2 years ago, I think they said nothing over 10 dollars - lala03  76.5 #85 11:24AM
If you have the DP you will have at least a sit down and counter service and snack. We always did counter for breakfast and sit down for dinner and tried to book it around 5-7. We packed with us granola bars, bags of nut and chips and other items that we could snack on in the middle to tide us over. Once the snacks are gone you have a little room to pack away your souvenirs. Two weeks that is awesome. Have a great time - mmddgp  1054.3 #7 12:50PM
So what food will come under snacks then?. I imagine that will include ice creams or lollies of some sort - GeorgeENG  8.1 #288 4:25PM
Graham crackers pop corn. I forget. - 5disneylovers  1158.7 #6 4:33PM
Vanilla waffers - 5disneylovers  1158.7 #6 4:34PM
It's most things that are under $4... pretzels, dole whips, chocolate bananas, etc, etc. - BagGal  343.6 #25 4:44PM
There is so much. We have used it for smoothies frozen coffee drinks fruit veggies and dip cakes cookies icecream sundays bags of chips candy pretzels both baged and soft hot pretzels. We try and stay away from using it for pop at parks an use it for an actual snack or treat but sometimes you are just so full with food you need to use it in your drinks - mmddgp  1054.3 #7 4:47PM
Dole whips! Candy, cookies, fruit, drinks, cupcakes and bunch of other yummy stuff! - nodell111  166.4 #54 7:20PM
In Epcot go to Germany caramel shop or France to the bakery. Everything under $4 is on the DP. Most of the time on the menus it will have a little DP next to it. Enjoy!!! - mzdisnee  568.7 #14 5:22PM

So from the looks of it, there is not even one app made for those of us on android. You know there are millions of people who do not own iPhones. Its kind of rediculous these days not to offer an android version of apps. Would love to help this site grow by donating, but I see no point in that when there appears to be no intrest by the app builders here to support android. I mean how about atleast a partialy functional app so we can feel that the android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community. I see lots of requests and sad posts about no android, but dont see any replys by the site to the fact that anyone is even working on it.I've checked back here every so offten to see if there is anything for android users, but never bothered joining until today.I just wanted to rant a little, and now I am done.Unfortunalty, at this point I think I am officaily giving up on mousewait. Thanks for reading  and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.0 #127129 11:05AM
I have an iPhone and an old droid. I use the old droid for wait times when my iPhone can't connect and it works fine. There's so many droid phones to have  separate apps for but I hope android makers would start using the basic same code and security but I'm probably wishing on a star for that . I miss my droid but a lot of apps don't work the same.  - secretagentangel  5597.4 #23 8:10PM

What percentage saving are we looking at for being MouseWaiters? Is it better than a AAA discount.  - MoChuck  154.2 #2690 3:57PM
