    Hello! I see on the Disney website that Dining Plans are not accepted for the Holiday Kitchens at EPCOT. I know in the past that some items have been able to be purchased with snack or quick service credits, is it new this year that you can't?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Chelsea. We love when you stop by!

     I'm so happy to hear you're planning a holiday visit to the Walt Disney World Resort next December. It really is the most magical time of the year! The Epcot International Festival of the Holidays is one of my favorite holiday events. With incredible entertainment offerings like the Candlelight Processional, and seasonal food and beverage specialties from Holiday Kitchens, it's the perfect place to celebrate the joy of the season! Have you seen the line-up of yummy eats for the 2018 Epcot International Festival of the Holidays? I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. Some unofficial websites are listing many of the food items and non-alcoholic beverages as eligible snacks on the Disney Dining Plan, but we won't know for sure until the Holiday Kitchens open on November 18, 2018. It's important to note that Disney Dining Plan eligibility is subject to change at any time, so what is or isn't an eligible snack item at this year's Holiday Kitchens may be different for your visit in 2019. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for news and updates about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
