    We're all set for our week at Disney World in mid-May! We have our meal reservations all booked, but if we book a sit-down reservation to only drink beer and wine at MK or Wilderness Lodge, is this allowed? Extra-generous tip to server, of course!

    I suspect that I’d get along just fine with your traveling party, Shane. I happen to believe that sipping a beverage at any Walt Disney World location is time well spent. We can agree on that, right?

    As long as your dining reservation does not fall within any fixed price meal times or experiences, there are no minimum purchase requirements. If you opt to give your feet a well-deserved break whilst raising a toast to a magical vacation, so be it. Of course, there is no guarantee that you won’t be tempted by some of the amazing appetizer options available. 

    Since you specifically mentioned Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, I would be remiss not to tell you about one of my must-do’s for each trip. Have you ever visited the Territory Lounge? The Pacific Northwest vibe contributes to a cozy and rustic ambiance -- the perfect backdrop for exploring some of the regional wines on the menu. Reservations are not required for this little tucked-away gem.

    I hope that helps, Shane. Cheers!
