    Back Again Panel! On the regular DDP if not using the alcohol option, what does the specialty beverage include? Are souvenir cups included? Want to be sure we are using the plan to the fullest. Have a MaGiCaL Day!

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Amy. We just love when you stop by!

     The Disney Dining Plan is a must-do for my family's Walt Disney World Resort vacations. This unique perk for Guests of Disney Resort hotels is sure to add value, convenience, and flexibility to your upcoming stay! And now that the Disney Dining Plan includes alcoholic and specialty beverages, it has an even greater value than ever before.

     To answer your question, specialty beverages can include artisanal milkshakes, fresh smoothies, premium hot chocolates, or customized coffees. Unfortunately, meal and snack entitlements do not cover specialty beverages that are served in souvenir containers. I'm a big supporter of getting the most bang for your buck, so be sure to ask the Cast Member taking your order what specialty beverages are currently offered. They'll be happy to help you maximize your dining plan entitlements!

     Speaking of beverages on the Disney Dining Plan, did you know you can use a snack entitlement for nearly any beverage listed on the menu at the Starbucks locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort? This exhausted mom of three runs on equal parts pixie-dust and caffeine, so ordering a Venti Iced Caramel Macchiato is my favorite way to use my snack entitlements!

     I hope this was helpful, Amy. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
