    Does the Character Dining at Garden Grill, Tusker House, Crystal Palace & Hollywood and Vine serve alcohol beverages/cocktails that are included in the DDP? Are there any alcohol choice restrictions on DDP?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Adam!

    I love using the Disney Dining Plan, and one of the reasons we choose to keep adding it to our vacation package when we travel to Walt Disney World Resort is that it is constantly evolving to meet the needs of guests. In 2018, the Dining Plan was changed to include an alcoholic beverage with meals for guests over the age of 21. Now you can try some of my favorite drinks and the theme parks and Resort Hotels like the Paloma at Grand Floridian Cafe or the Seychelles Martini at Victoria Falls Lounge at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge!

    I have great news for you because all of the restaurants you mentioned in your question, Garden Grill Restaurant, Tusker House Restaurant, Hollywood & Vine, and The Crystal Palace, all have alcoholic drinks on the menu that are included with the redemption of your Table-Service Disney Dining Plan credit. There are plenty of drinks to choose from like mimosas at breakfast, beer, cider, and wine, as well as a selection of specialty cocktails. For the most part, if it's a single-serving alcoholic drink you can order it with your meal. The drink menus vary from location to location, so be sure to ask the friendly Cast Member serving you if the beverage you want to enjoy is included with the Dining Plan.

    Have a magical day, Adam!
