Here's what the Disney Dining Plan website describes about the Snack credit:
"Examples of snacks are: 1 frozen ice cream novelty, popsicle, fruit bar, popcorn scoop (single-serving box), single-serving bag of snacks, single piece of whole fruit, 20-oz. bottle of Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite or Dasani water, 22-oz. fountain soft drink or juice, 12-oz. coffee, hot chocolate or hot tea, single-serving prepackaged milk or juice"
Yes, a bottle of water costs $2.50 in the parks, but you can get far more food than a bottle of water!
