    ? about the DDP. Can we order a milkshake or a glowing character punch drink (or something else non-alcoholic) on the plan or do we have to pay extra for anything other then soda, water, tea and coffee? Thanks for all the tips, this site is GREAT!

    Hi, Lori!

    I love having the Disney Dining Plan!  Always so much fun, and an excuse to have dessert with every meal!  What's not to love?

    At most restaurants, the non-alcoholic beverage is your basic soda, iced tea, coffee.  However, there are some locations that are the BEST! My favorite - Whispering Canyon Cafe not only includes milkshakes as one of your included drink options, but UNLIMITED milkshakes!  I have to admit, my limit is 2!  But, wow are they fabulous!

    At Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater, a milkshake is an included drink option on the Adult plan, but not the Child plan (I usually just order the milkshake and trade with one of my kids!)  Yes, I sacrifice for my kids (which leaves me no problem ordering dessert!)  I've heard it is the same for 50's Prime Time Cafe though I've never ordered a milkshake there before, so I cannot confirm that.

    While there may be other locations, these are the only few that I am aware of that lets you do the milkshake-for-your-drink at no extra charge.  I have never found a location that includes the glowing drinks, those are always extra (but oh so fun!)   When you server greets you, ask what your options are, you never know!  Also, if you do "order-up" and pay for the upgraded drink, ask the price ahead of time so there are no surprises when the bill arrives!

    Have a great vacation and hope you find LOTS of wonderful places to eat! Make sure to make your Advance Dining Reservations online or by calling (407)WDW-DINE.

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!
