    I know that a quick service meal consists of 1 entree and 1 beverage. My question is can children 3-9 upgrade their beverage to a “fancier” beverage instead of what’s included in the kids meal?

    Hi Katie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Disney Dining Plans are a great way to pre-budget your meal money, and I like that you're already resEARching your dining options. New for 2018 and carrying on in 2019, guests can choose from a variety of beverages when redeeming their Quick-Service and Table-Service dining plan entitlements. Those older than 21 can choose from alcoholic options. But everyone, including children, can select from soda, milk, juice, coffee and tea, OR a speciality beverage like a smoothie or artisanal milkshake that includes following:

    Magic Kingdom Park:
    ~Frozen Mint Julep Lemonade at Casey's Corner
    ~Purple Wall Slushy at Tomorrowland Terrace

    ~Frozen Coca-Cola Slushy at Liberty Inn
    ~Strawberry Banana Smoothie at Sunshine Seasons

    Disney's Hollywood Studios:
    ~Strawberry Lemonade Slushy at ABC Commissary
    ~Peanut Butter and Jelly Milkshake at 50's Prime Time Cafe

    Disney's Animal Kingdom:
    ~Bibo (a mango and kiwi juice) at Harambe Market
    ~Pandoran Sunrise at Satul'li Canteen

    Disney Springs:
    ~Any Shake or Float at D-Luxe Burger

    And so many more!

    Pro Tip: Don't forget to check the dining location(s) at your Disney Resort Hotel, as well as at neighboring Resorts, for more options. Some offer crazy shakes, like the Split Screen Milkshake at Disney's All-Star Movies Resort, which is a milkshake topped with a slice of cheesecake!

    Do note that items that come in or with a souvenir, such as a special cup or a glow cube, are not included. But you can always ask if the same beverage can be made non-souvenir style.

    I hope this helped, Katie, and We'll See You Real Soon!
