    Hello. I am planning a Disney trip with quick service dining for an arrival in June. I saw that we can now use a snack credit for beer; wine or a specialty cocktail. I was wondering if there were any limits on the type of cocktails that are offered.

    Hi Denise!

    Welcome BACK to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Are you starting to get so excited now that you're in the same yEAR as your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation? Don't forget to keep up with the Disney Parks Blog so you won't miss a minute of the new and now.

    Disney Dining Plans currently allow guests the choice between enjoying a standard beverage when redeeming their meal entitlements (soda, tea, coffee), or choosing a premium selection, such as a milkshake, specialty hot chocolate or smoothie. Guests ages 21 years and up may even select an alcoholic libation as the beverage portion of their meal entitlements if they'd like. Snack entitlements have literally hundreds of non-alcoholic options, everything from popcorn to a Mickey-shaped ice cream sandwich, a croissant jambon fromage (that's a ham and cheese croissant that yes, you do want warmed up) to any size Starbucks hand-crafted beverage. However, at this time, snack entitlements cannot be redeemed for alcoholic beverages.

    There are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to imbibing at Mickey's house:

    ~ When requesting an adult drink as your meal's beverage, pretty much if it's listed on the menu, it's fair game. The one exception is if said drink is described as coming with a glow cube or in a souvenEAR cup, it might instead be switched to a regular cup. Some of my favorite locations for a good variety of drinks are Woody's Lunchbox, La Cantina de San Angel, Harambe Market, Fairfax Fare and Satu'li Canteen.

    ~ Magic Kingdom Park is mostly dry. The only Quick-Service Dining Location where alcohol is served is at Be Our Guest Restaurant. And do note that this location does require a reservation for all meal service times.

    ~ The alcohol options at Quick-Service dining locations are limited to what you see on the menu. Table-Service Dining Locations usually offer a more extensive list to choose from. And good news, there's still time to upgrade to the Disney Dining Plan or Deluxe Dining Plan before your vacation. Upgrades must be completed at least 72 hours prior to check-in.

    ~ And if the above didn't do it for you, there are still a number of wonderful watering holes, lounges and drink carts all around Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom Park where you can buy a drink out of pocket or charge it to your MagicBand. Some of my favorites are beer flights at BaseLine Tap House, Dawa Bar, Nomad Lounge, La Cava del Tequila, Thirsty River Bar & Trek Snacks, Les Vins des Chefs de France, Tune-In Lounge and the Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge.

    I hope this has given you a lot of food (err, drinks?) for thought, Denise, and We'll See You Real Soon!
