    Hi! If I have a Disney dining plan quick service dining plan which includes alcoholic drinks, must the meal and drink be ordered at the same time or could I save up the drink credits to spend, for example, at the Epcot flower festival (May 2025)? Thank you

    Hiya Hannah!

    Welcome to planDisney! Dining plans can be so convenient and help make decisions easier. Why? Well, if you want the steak or the fancy drink you can say "yes!" and know that it is already pre-paid and ready to be enjoyed. However, there are some rules and restrictions and I am glad to be here to help you. 

    The dining plan allows a certain number of meals and snacks per day based on the number of nights of your Resort Reservation. These meals for those 21 and older can include an alcoholic beverage that can include beer, wine, and cocktails. These drinks are part of that meal and cannot be separated for use later. If you choose not to purchase an alcoholic beverage during your meal and select something else like a Coke product or milkshake you have lost the chance to purchase that alcoholic beverage later. I'm sorry that you won't be able to save it for the International EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival. Snacks in the dining plan are a good option for certain non-alcoholic beverages and so many yummy snacks but not for alcohol at this time at the Outdoor Kitchens as well.

    If you want help in deciding what to eat at this festival, the Disney Parks Blog provides a great Foodie Guide which I suggest you check out. My favorite item which I have consumed twice in one week is the Seasonal Fruit Parfait with sweet chili sauce and DOLE Whip Mango. It's so delicious and has a kick that combines into such a refreshing snack. 

    I hope this helps and you have a delicious time!

    Happy Planning!
