    We have dining reservations next month for the ROL dining package at Tusker House. I was going to use our dining plan credits, does this mean we will lose the alcoholic & specialty drinks that come with the dining plan or will they still be included?

    Jambo, Kristine!

    My family loves using the Disney Dining Plan while on vacation at Walt Disney World and having the option to order an alcoholic beverage for the adults or a specialty drink for the kids is the perfect addition.  Using your Disney Dining Plan on show packages is a great way to spend your entitlements and you'll be visiting one of my favorite restaurants!

    Alcoholic and specialty beverages are still included in the Disney Dining Plan when you use it for special experiences like the Rivers of Light Dining Package at Disney's Animal Kingdom.  The website states the package includes a non-alcoholic beverage, but that is for guests who are not using the Disney Dining Plan.  I have used the Disney Dining Plan several times for the Fantasmic! Dining Package at Disney's Hollywood Studios as well as the Disney on Broadway Concert Series Dining Package at Epcot.

    Breakfast, lunch and dinner at Tusker House Restaurant are so delicious as well as their specialty drinks and visiting with the characters in their safari outfits is a bonus!  I am a picky eater, so being able to try different foods is ideal to me and I've found quite a bit of African flavors that I like.  The Curry Chicken is my favorite dish, but I also chow down on the creamy mac n cheese.  For drinks, my kids like the Lava Smoothie and I just love the Lost on Safari cocktail.  There will be a menu at your table that lists all of the non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages included in the Disney Dining Plan.

    I do hope you enjoy your meal with Donald and friends as well as the beautiful Rivers of Light show in the evening.  Stop back by and visit if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
