    we are currently booking our reservation at Disney world this June. we purchased the delux dining plan. I understand that this will not cover any sovineer cups, but could you dine with the dining plan and still buy a souvenir cup separate?

    Hi, Heather!

    You are welcome to purchase any "extras" that are not included with your Disney Dining Plan credits. This might include wine, extra food, adult beverages, or the super fun light up souvenir character cups that are offered at many restaurants. Sometimes it is a light up Tinker Bell, or other fun character (usually around $7, price subject to change).

    When ordering anything at a Disney restaurant, make sure to inquire with your server if the item is covered with your credits, and if not, ask the price so you do not have any surprises when your bill arrives at the end of your meal. The bill that you will be presented with will have any extras that you ordered, gratuity, and will also list your remaining Disney Dining Plan credits. It is quite an efficient system.

    Do not forget each member of your travel party who is on the Disney Dining Plan will also get a refillable resort beverage mug. I just do not want you to be buying cups at every restaurant and need an entire suit case just for cups when packing to go home!  The refillable resort mugs do not light up fun like the ones you can purchase in restaurants, but they all take up space just the same.

    Wishing your family a magical vacation in Walt Disney World!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
