    I know the 2018 dining plan now includes non alcoholic drinks such as milkshake and smoothies. I was wondering does this new plan also include non alcoholic drinks in specialty cups like the ones that light up and such?

    Hi Jessica!

    So many guests are excited about the new features in the 2018 Disney Dining Plan, including single-serving milkshakes, smoothies, and the alcoholic beverages for those 21 and older. I can’t wait to try out all of the delicious possibilities.

    Remember to always ask the cast member serving you, as they will have the most up-to-date information. Information for the Quick-Service Dining, Disney Dining, and Deluxe Dining Plans can be found on the Walt Disney World website, which provides a great reference as you plan for your trip. As of right now, the specialty cups are excluded from all three Disney Dining Plans, as the cups are considered souvenirs. Similarly, glow cubes are also excluded as they count as merchandise. Of course, you are always able to pay out-of-pocket for those drinks on top of using your credits if you'd like. I have a Pascal glow cube from my Easter Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast with Rapunzel and friends at Trattoria al Forno, and it brightens every day on my desk at work!

    Jessica, don't forget to make the most of the Disney Dining Plan by ordering the eligible specialty drinks. My tip is to try the ah-mazing Peanut Butter n' Jelly Milkshake at 50's Prime Time Café in Disney's Hollywood Studios. It’s scrumptious!

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
