    With dining plan 2018 what drinks can kids get ? I noticed most meals say water bottle or milk can that be changed? Also we purchased our dining in 2017 but will travel in 2018 do we still get the new drink change?

    Hi, there!

     Ella, you are going to have such a wonderful Spring visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. Magic will be blooming all around you!

     My husband and I love the convenience of the Disney Dining Plan when we're traveling with our kiddos. Our boys can be picky, but they always find a tasty AND healthy meal to enjoy at the Walt Disney World Resort!

     I'm happy to tell you that you certainly will get to take advantage of the exciting beverage changes to the 2018 Disney Dining Plan. New this year, Guests may choose a specialty beverage (where available) as part of their Quick-Service and Table-Service entitlements. Specialty beverages can include milkshakes, smoothies and hot chocolate! Guests 21 and older may choose a single-serving alcoholic beverage (where available) with each of their meal entitlements. 

      At some Quick-Service dining locations, you'll see that children are only offered milk or bottled water with Kids' Meals. At others, juice is available too. Some, like Be Our Guest Restaurant for lunch, offer children the same beverage options as adults. Beverages offered with Quick-Service Kids' Meals will really be dependent on the location. My best advice is to ask a Cast Member if a substitution is available when you need one. We have almost always been able to make substitutions, when necessary, for our kiddos. The Cast Members at dining locations are Disney Dining Plan experts, and they'll be happy to answer any questions you have!

     Thanks for stopping by, Ella!
