Looking to add a Disney Twist and have some glow in the dark fun in the process? If you can get your hands on a black light, it’s quite easy!
Have you been to Disney recently? Did you have any snack credits left over? I did and I decided to stock up for the party and created a fun basket of lollipops and Pez, all using snacks left over from our dining plan:
Snacks as Party Favors!

For the room, some fun neon balloons, glow sticks, and music will put the kids into an alternate biosphere:
What next? Once the kids arrive, all you need are some highlighters, glow face paint (if you’re so inclined), glow sticks, and a few fun activities like Duck Duck Goose in the Dark, the Electric Slide, or the rainbow tent. The fun just creates itself!

Put highlighters and paper on tables for the kids who don’t want to play games. Did you know highlighters glow in the dark?
Don’t forget the cake, or cupcakes! Any kind will do but we found Glow in the dark horns and ears to top our cake with:
Sisters share birthday candles
When the lights go on, everybody goes home and takes a fun party favor and assuredly, a good memory.
You wouldn’t eat broccoli if it was deep fried in chocolate sauce, right? What if it was an approved snack entitlement in the world of Disney Dining?
Never heard of the disney dining plan? With the Dining Plan you enjoy pre-paid meals at over 100 locations throughout Disney Parks, Disney Resorts, and Disney Springs. After doing some research of my own, and trying the plan out.. I’ve decided. The plan is a million dollar idea (literally). It’s crunchy. It’s explosive. You can break free with it and sort of do your own thing. Almost as good as just the top of a muffin. Seriously.
What’s even better? You don’t have to sit at a diner counter and wait for your coffee to be poured. If the pretzels you choose as your snack make you thirsty, the plan includes a Resort Dining Mug, which has unlimited refills of coffee, soda, tea, hot chocolate, lemonade. You get these refills at all of the Disney Resort beverage stations, which are usually open from about 630am or so until as late as 11pm.
Another great key to the Disney Dining Plan is that your trip is basically pre paid. The bill that often hits you at the end of a trip won’t be AS MUCH of a surprise. While gratuities are not included with the dining plan (unless you are at a few of the character meals), everything else is.
If you like to eat, it’s a win-win plan. Just be sure to use up the plan before you go (HINT – take some snacks as gifts)))!! Because, who’s going to turn down a junior mint? It’s chocolate, it’s peppermint, it’s delicious!

All in all, as Julia Child once said, People who love to eat are always the best people. So if you are one of those “best people”, I suggest the dining plan.
