Walt Disney World, home of the dole whip, the citrus swirl, the Mickey bar.... need I go on?!

But what about when you have had enough of the sweet and need a little savoury? Here are my top ways to spend your snack credits. Theres nothing sweet about this 16!

1. Pulled Pork Cheese Fries, Flame Tree BBQ, Animal Kingdom

How could I start this list anywhere else. Any of you who followed my last trip will know how much I enjoyed these. 

They make a perfect light lunch or in-between meal. 

These retail for $6.99 but you can use 1 snack credit, making them a great value on the dining plan. 

2. Garlic Breadsticks, Pinocchio's Village Haus, Magic Kingdom

These garlic breadsticks are great value for money at just $4.99 or 1 snack credit. 

They are easily sharable so make a great side dish or snack. The sticks come with a pot of marinara sauce for dipping.

 Pinocchios has lots of seating so this can be a great place to rest and recharge with a drink and some of these delicious breadsticks. 

3. Tortilla Chips (and toppings bar), Pecos Bill, Magic Kingdom

Ok hear me out. This might sound pretty boring, but wait. If you order these tortilla chips with your snack credit you can then head over to the FREE toppings bar and turn this snack credit into a meal credit with ease!

Toppings include, salsa, corn, grated cheese, sour cream, guacamole, onions, lettuce, chopped tomatoes and jalapeños. So you can basically build your own salad. 

4. Egg Rolls, Yak & Yet Local Food Cafes, Animal Kingdom 

These egg rolls (spring rolls) in animal kingdom make a great savoury pit stop whilst walking around Asia.

Note: they are always super hot so don't burn your mouth, and they are a little peppery so kiddos might want to try something else (perhaps my no.5) 

An egg roll will set you back $3.99 or 1 snack credit.

(you can also find these at Lotus Blossom Cafe in Epcot)

5. Chicken Fried Rice, Yak and Yeti Local Food Cafes, Animal Kingdom

Another fan favourite from Yak and Yeti is the chicken fried rice. I have been eating this since my first trip back in 2012 and its still on the menu, because its YUM! 

Its also a great value as you get a full tub of chicken rice for just $4.25 or 1 snack credit

If you pop around the corner from your pick up window, you will also find some pretty interesting sauces if you want to spice it up a bit.

6. Mickey Pretzel, Various Locations, All Parks

I couldn't do a savoury list without including my all time favourite face. 

This pretzel is my go to breakfast when in the parks. It also makes a great snack at the water parks with a shaved ice or a slushy. 

Some locations offer this with cheese sauce included, some without. Personally, I'm not a fan of this. Its just too salty and synthetic but you might want to find a location which includes this so you can try it for free. 

Mickey pretzels vary in price from $5.99 to $7 depending on location or are 1 snack credit on the dining plan. 

7. Jalapeño Cheese Pretzel, Lunching Pad, Magic Kingdom

Whilst on the subject of pretzels, I had to include another favourite of mine. 

This jalapeño pretzel has come and gone over the years, but right now its back and it can be found at the Lunching Pad in Tomorrowland in Magic Kingdom or Lowtide Lous in Typhoon Lagoon for $6.50/1 snack credit. 

Its got a bit of a kick to it, so you might want to grab one of those slushies to wash it down with. 

8. Baked Macaroni Cheese, Eight Spoon Cafe, Animal Kingdom 

Eight Spoon Cafe is a tiny unassuming spot on the path between Discovery Island and Asia that serves up some really good snacks. 

You will find Mickey pretzels and Topped Mac and Cheese. 

My favourite is the pulled pork, with BBQ, and pickles but you can go plain or there is also a sweet chilli shrimp version as well. 

Prices are from $4.49 for the plain to $6.49 or all of them are 1 snack credit. 

9. Roule Lard Au Fromage, Les Halles Boulangerie, Epcot

I love the Boulangerie in the France Pavillion any time of day but it is my top spot for a breakfast/brunch when in epcot. 

There are loads of savoury options here but I love this bacon and cheese roll. I always ask for some extra butter too, because why not?! Its proper french butter as well, not that awful whipped American stuff. 

One of these with a Bellini at midday and I am in heaven. Its a great spot to sit outside and people watch too. 

The roule is $3.95 or 1 snack credit.

10. Sushi, Kabuki Cafe, Epcot

Fed up of fast and fried food. Look no further than Kabuki Cafe in the Japan Pavillion in Epcot. 

Here you will find a variety of pre prepared sushi combinations all for 1 snack credit.

I also highly recommend the kaki gori (Japanese shaved ice)

11. French Onion Soup, Be Our Guest, Magic Kingdom 

This is a great way to get lunch for just a snack credit. 

The soup here is easily of table service standard. Everything is also served on proper crockery and with proper cutlery which is nice and the air con makes a welcomed break from the Florida sunshine. 

This cheesy oniony yumminess will cost you $7.99 or just a snack credit!

12. Mr Kamal's Seasoned Fries, Mr Kamal's, Animal Kingdom 

Animal Kingdom really is home to some amazing savoury snacks and Mr Kamal has been serving up his savoury fries since pretty much the beginning
(disclaimer - I dont think there is actually a Mr Kamal, but the fries are definitely real)

These fries have a mildly spiced seasoning on them, which would be good on its own but they also come topped with tzatsiki and sriracha sauce, giving the some serious oomph. 

You can pay $4.99 for these or 1 snack credit. 

13.  Gourmet Popcorn, Epcot

Im always more of a salted popcorn fan anyway, but when I saw that a little stand in Epcot was now offering more savoury flavours, I just had to try. 

The stand is so under the radar it doesn't even have a name, but this may change. It is the one just opposite Journey into Imagination with Figment. 

Choose from sour crem and chive, buffalo bleu cheese, or cheddar.

Each are $4.75 or a snack credit. and if you cant decide you could ask for a mix of all 3. 

14. Curry Chicken Pocket, Joy of Tea, Epcot 

Most people like Joy of Tea in Epcot for... well tea!

Despite being from Yorkshire you will never find me drinking tea, but I am quite partial to these curry chicken pockets.

These are $4.50 for the 2 pockets or 1 snack credit.

15. Chilli Queso Fries, Golden Oak Outpost, Magic Kingdom

This little kiosk in Frontierland changes its menu pretty regularly, put right now you can get some pretty delicious fried foods including Jalapeño poppers and a mound of chilli queso fries which you can see above! That'll keep your cowboys satisfied!

These will cost you $6.49 out of pocket or 1 snack credit.

16. Soup/Salad, Sunshine Seasons, Epcot

Sunshine seasons in the land pavilion (near soarin) in Epcot is a great spot for some proper healthy grub. 

There are various sections but you will find a soup/salad bar where you can pick up a pot of soup (flavours vary each day), or a small salad which can be anything from mixed greens to a caprese with mozzarella all for just a snack credit. 

Perfect for a light lunch or for sharing alongside a main course. 

Do you have any super savoury snack credit recommendations? If you do let me know in the comments below. I'm always on the lookout for more!
