    With the Dining plan, if we have left over quick service meal credits but don't want food, can they be used for a cocktail at a Disney Resort Hotel bar? Like one quick service meal credit for say a margarita : )

    Hi Mike!

    Welcome back to planDisney!  I'm glad to see that you've added the Disney Dining Plan to your trip as the flexibility and convenience offered make traveling a breeze!

    Mike, I like the way you think!  Walt Disney World Resort is known as The Most Magical Place on Earth, but while Fairy Godmother can't convert Quick-Service meals directly to margaritas, you will find that guests over 21 can choose an alcoholic beverage with both Quick-Service and Table-Service meals.  This alcoholic beverage could be a single serving of beer, cider, wine, sangria, mixed drinks, or specialty cocktails.  Depending on which Disney Resorts Collection hotel you are staying at, you may find options to redeem a Quick-Service meal at select bars - like Beaches Pool Bar and Grill at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa or the Oasis Bar and Grill at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, among others.  At these locations, you may be able to find a lighter entree to enjoy with your drink while relaxing by the pool.

    If you're looking for good margaritas to enjoy as part of the Disney Dining Plan, one of my best recommendations would be La Hacienda de San Angel in EPCOT.  Here you can time your reservation just right and have a beautiful indoor view of Luminous The Symphony of Us while enjoying my favorite margarita on the menu, The Wild One.  Continuing with the fireworks and margaritas theme, you can pair dinner at 'Ohana while viewing Happily Ever After with a Sunset Margarita - perfection!  Another fun choice for dinner and a cocktail is The Edison over in Disney Springs.  With an extensive cocktail menu, this restaurant may feel like you're stepping back to the 1920s, but you'll certainly know the Prohibition Era is over.  Don't forget to make those advanced dining reservations for any Table-Service restaurants you hope to visit during your vacation.  

    Mike, I hope this information helps plan ways to have your meals and your margaritas too!  I encourage you to check with your servers throughout your stay with any additional dining plan questions - I'm sure they'll be happy to help!  And, as always, you're welcome to be our guest at planDisney any time with your vacation planning questions!
