    Which drinks or entrees are not included on my Disney Dining Plan? I was told that it would be indicated on the online menus, but I don't see any specific exclusions. I only see a general statement that "some items" require an uncharge.

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Christine!

    My family and I absolutely love using the Disney Dining Plan when we're on vacation and there are so many reasons why we keep adding it to our vacation package every time we go. We love that all of our meals and snacks are taken care of in advance and that it fits into our budget, but there's also the ease and flexibility of being able to just tap your MagicBand and enjoy something delicious to eat! We love trying new dining experiences, foods, and flavors, which is why it's so great that there is so much to choose from when it comes time to place your order.

    The reason that you're not seeing specific exclusions on the online menus for the restaurants you're looking at is probably because there isn't a lot that isn't included on the Disney Dining Plan! Like I mentioned before, my family and I are huge fans of the Dining Plan and dining at Walt Disney World Resort in general, and in our quest to try all of the restaurants on offer we have rarely found any entrées that aren't included when you're eating somewhere that participates in the Dining Plan. When you're at the restaurant, the menu there will be very clear if something is not included or requires an upgrade charge, but again, it's pretty rare! Since menu offerings tend to rotate out pretty frequently in order to use fresh, seasonal ingredients and try new exciting flavors, make sure to ask the Cast Member serving you if you have any questions about what's included when you redeem your Dining Plan credit.

    Happy snacking, Christine!
