    I Purchase a quick service dining plan. Can you change your Non Alcoholic Beverage for a snack or side?

    Hello Jose!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It is a pleasure to answer your first question.

    Disney Dining Plans are an amazing and very convenient way to turn your Magic Your Way Vacation Package into an all-inclusive experience. You are going to truly enjoy your Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan and the several locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort where you are able to redeem your meals.

    I have been able to exchange a non-alcoholic beverage for a snack while using the Quick-Service Dining Plan in the past, so you should be able to do the same. Please note that the exchange has to be made in the same transaction, which means you have to select an eligible snack from the same location right away. It is not possible to keep the snack credit to redeem it later at another place. I was never able to exchange the beverage for a side. However, I recommend that you always check with Cast Members as substitutions depend on restaurant policy.

    Moms Panel tip: my favorite Quick-Service location for breakfast and lunch is Be Our Guest Restaurant. This is an amazing venue that lets you dine in Beast Castle! You can even have a sneak peek at the enchanted rose. Reservations are accepted for both meals and can be made up to 180 days in advance online, by calling (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463, or by using the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Jose!
    Happy magical dining,
