    If I don't drink alcohol, can I trade my beverage credit at a table service location for an appetizer?

    Hi Aimee!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Have you already started making a list of all of the snacks you'd like to savor and dining reservations you'd like to delight in? I like to keep up with the latest up-to-date offerings by following the Disney Parks Blog.

    The 2018 version of all Disney Dining Plans come with the fun inclusion of a premium beverage with each Quick and Table-Service Dining Entitlement. A Premium Beverage is a single-serving of an artisanal milkshake, a fresh smoothie or a premium hot chocolate. Guests 21 years of age and older may also choose from beer, cider, wine, sangria or a mixed drink. You may also choose a soda, coffee or tea. Substitutions do get tricky as officially there isn't a set list or rule of what you may trade for what. Some guests do succeed in swapping their premium dining plan beverage for another dessert option, so it never hurts to ask if you might be able to pick an appetizer instead of a drink at a Table-Service dining location.

    Personally I like to forgo appetizers when at Walt Disney World Resort and instead pick up an extra snack during the day. My current favorites are the Colossal Cinnamon Roll at Kusafiri in Disney's Animal Kingdom and the fruit-topped Mickey Waffle at Sleepy Hollow in Magic Kingdom Park.

    We'll See You Real Soon, Aimee!
