    Another dining question for you all knowledgeable folks.... Which meals are a beverage included in the purchase price of the meal? Is it all Table Service meals? Is it just buffets; oopps.. sorry all-you-care-to-enjoy meals? Is there a list somewhere?

    Hey, Charles and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Oh boy! I love the delicious delectables Mickey and gang cook up at almost 700 dining locations. Your answer depends on whether or not you purchase a Disney Dining Plan. Most meals are a-la-carte while some that come with a beverage are Disney Check Meals (formerly Mickey Check Meals) for Guests under 10 years old and all-you-care-to-enjoy experiences for all ages. There is no comprehensive list. However, you can add some pixie dust to your Disney vacation with a Disney Dining Plan which will include, at a minimum, a beverage, and entreé.

    When booking a Disney Resort Hotel Package with a Disney Dining Plan add on you get fun, food, and Fantasmic-ally themed hotels to complete your enchanted Disney getaway. Each Disney Dining Plan provides a different experience and is based on every NIGHT of stay. Please check the specifics of your plan. In general:

    Quick-Service and Table Service allotments both include one (1) entrée and (1) non-alcoholic beverage at each meal per person. Disney Dining and Deluxe Dining Plan lunch and dinner choices include a dessert while the Deluxe Plan also includes an appetizer. Guests 21 and older may substitute an alcoholic beverage in place of the non-alcoholic inclusion.

    Disney Dad Tip: At some participating dining locations you can substitute your beverage for any eligible snack item on Disney Dining Plans. For example, you arrive at the Quick-Service experience, Cosmic Rays Starlight Café in Magic Kingdom Park. You may order a Grilled Chicken Club as your entree, substitute French Fries for your beverage and order a complimentary cup of water. More yummy food for your tummy.

    Charles, enjoy making many delicious and Magical Memories.
