    Will the 2018 dining packages (Fantasmic, Festival of Fantasy, Rivers of Light, etc) include an alcoholic beverage for those guests that are on the dining plan? Thanks!

    Hi Courtney,

    Glad you could join us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. A vacation for next year sounds wonderful. I am also planning one myself!

    The Dining Plans are a great way to prepay for your meals and leave home any worries of food budgets. Just make it part of your Magic Your Way Vacation Package! For 2018, some exciting changes are happening, when Guests will have more options to choose from for their drink selections, like milkshakes and smoothies, and for Guests age 21 and over, alcoholic beverages like beer and wine.

    Recently I helped a Guest with a similar question, and the Dining Team tells me that alcoholic beverages should be an option, since they are now part of your Dining Plan. But my suggestion is to check with them at the beginning of the year to be sure. Also, be aware that there are some changes too. For example, the 2018 Fantasmic! Dining Package at Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano will no longer include an appetizer.

    One last tip: be sure to make all your dining reservations 180 days in advance for best selection. Happy planning!
