    Can a child (3-9) On the regular DDP get a specialty drink even though they must order from the kids menu?

    Welcome BACK, Janice!

    It's great to see you again, and thank you for asking another great Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question to us!

    Yes, any and every guest utilizing a Disney Dining Plan is eligible to upgrade their standard meal beverage (soda, coffee, milk, juice, etc) to a premium Specialty Beverage (milkshake, smoothie, premium hot chocolate, etc), where available. This means even the youngest Mouseketeers in your group! Some of my favorite upgraded options at Disney's various Dining Locations are the Peanut Butter & Jelly Milkshake from 50's Prime Time Cafe, the Strawberry Lemonade Slushy (found at multiple locations), Moof Juice from Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo, a Frozen Flamingo at Harambe Market, Pandoran Sunrise at Satu'li Canteen, and a Root Beer Float from Woody's Lunch Box. And the points for the location with the most options of shakes and floats goes to D-Luxe Burger in Disney Springs, currently with 11!

    Bonus Tips: For even more planning help, check out our Moms Panel videos about all kinds of topics. And also head over to our recently added 'Moms Panel Extras' section where we share our top tips for navigating Disney's Theme Parks with little ones, go in detail on how to use Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering, even how to utilize the brand new Disney Skyliner!

    I hope this helped to better plan your upcoming Disney Days, Janice, and We'll See You Real Soon!
