    Hi, We will be heading to WDW in Jan 2018 and have purchased the dining plan. Do the kids (9 and under) also get a specialty drink with their meals or is it only the adults? Thank you!

    Hi Anne, and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with this delicious follow-up question!

    I trust you have already heard about the exciting additional options coming to the Disney Dining Plan in 2018. Starting in 2018, guests redeeming meal credits (both Quick-Service or Table Service) will be eligible to receive an alcoholic beverage with their meal (for guests age 21 and older), or alternatively, a non-alcoholic specialty beverage. And yes, Anne, even your kids (aged 3-9 years old) who are redeeming a Child Meal Credit on the Disney Dining Plan will be eligible for the non-alcoholic specialty beverages. So chEARS to that!

    Don't forget that all guests on the Disney Dining Plan will also receive a refillable drink mug which is eligible for unlimited refills of coffee, tea, hot chocolate and fountain drinks at self-service beverage stations located at any Walt Disney World Resort hotel for your length of stay (up to 14 days). This is such a great value and a terrific benefit that my family always puts to good use on our trips.

    Anne, if you haven't already done so, I highly recommend that you start making your Disney Dining Reservations as soon as possible, as the 180 day booking window is already open for your January trip.

    Should you have any other questions regarding the Dining Plan, or if we can assist in any other way as you continue to finalize your plans, please let us know. We are here to help, and want you to have the best possible upcoming Disney vacation!

    Bon Appetit!
