    Hi, my dad and I will be at Disney for the holiday season and I'm trying to find out if the Epcot holiday festival is included with the dining plan?

    Hi Kayla! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I am thrilled that you and your dad are attending the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays in just a few days! The festival began yesterday and the pictures that I have seen of the delicious holiday food offerings have me drooling!

    I have great news, Kayla! Many of the items available at the Holiday Kitchens qualify as a snack entitlement on the Disney dining plans. You will find that the alcoholic beverages are not included, but there are some non-alcoholic beverages like the American Heritage Milk Chocolate Gourmet Hot Cocoa with Wondermade Marshmallows at the American Holiday Table kiosk that are included on the dining plan.

    When my husband and I have used our dining plan at any of the Epcot festivals, we save all of our snack entitlements to use at the festival since all of the snack entitlements are in our account immediately after checking into our Disney Resort hotel. We also share dishes so we can try more items without getting full as quickly. We love tasting our way around World Showcase this way!

    I hope you have a sleigh-full of fun exploring the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays, Kayla! Please let us know if you have any other questions.

One of my favorite things about taking a Disney Parks vacation is that there is always something new and wonderful to discover, no matter if this is your first trip or if you visit multiple times per year.
