    Hello! Can I use the Quick Service Dinning Plan to buy alcohol beverages at Epcot's Food and Wine Festival?

    Hey, Vanessa! We are on the final countdown to the beginning of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival! This is my favorite event of the year and usually make it down there at least twice because there is no way I can enjoy every bit of deliciousness during one visit. I love that the portions are small, giving us a chance to taste many treats and drinks each day. 

    Guests are welcome to use their Disney Dining Plan snack entitlements at the Global Marketplaces during the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. In addition to this, you could use a Quick Service meal entitlement to purchase up to three items. Note that all three must be purchased at the same time at a single Global Marketplace. To do this, the Cast Members will "convert" that meal credit into snack credits.

    When you look at each kiosk's menu board, you will see that most of the items carry alongside them the Disney Dining Plan purple and white logo. This is the best way to discover the items for which you may use your plan entitlements. In the past, alcoholic beverages have been excluded from the list of snack credit-eligible items. From what we have been told, even if a guest uses a Quick Service credit at the kiosk, alcoholic beverages will be excluded since that credit will essentially be considered snack credits at that point due to the conversion I mentioned earlier.

    I hope you have a fantastic visit to the festival and please let us know if you have any other questions as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted adventures!
