    Hello, am I reading the 2018 dining plan correctly that even children 3-9 can choose a specialty beverage such as a smoothie/slushie/milkshake as their beverage for their meal entitlements?

    Hi Tami, 

    It sounds like you are just as excited as I am about the new and exciting additional options coming to the Disney Dining Plan in 2018. Starting in 2018, guests redeeming meal credits (both Quick-Service or Table Service) will be eligible to receive an alcoholic beverage with their meal (for guests age 21 and older), or alternatively, a non-alcoholic specialty beverage. And yes, even kids (aged 3-9 years old) who are redeeming a Child Meal Credit on the Disney Dining Plan will be eligible for the non-alcoholic specialty beverages. So chEARS to that!

    Don't forget that all guests on the Disney Dining Plan will also receive a refillable drink mug which is eligible for unlimited refills of coffee, tea, hot chocolate and fountain drinks at self-service beverage stations located at select Walt Disney World Resort hotel for your length of stay (up to 14 days). This is such a great value and a terrific benefit that my family always puts to good use on our trips.

    Tami, should you have any other questions regarding the Dining Plan, or if we can assist in any other way as you continue to finalize your plans, please let us know. We are here to help, and want you to have the best possible upcoming Disney vacation!

    Bottoms Up!
