    Is the Specialty Character Drink at Garden Grill included with the DDP? I don't see many options listed on their online menu for N/A drink options....

    Hi Laura, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Squee! Garden Grill Restaurant is one of my favorite character dining experiences, because Chip  'n' Dale are just too cute and huggable. When my family visited, we also met Farmer Mickey and his pal Pluto, which was so magical. I know you're going to have tons of fun!

    On the Disney Dining Plan, beverages like the Specialty Character Drink, which is served in a souvenir cup and includes a glow cube, are not included. You would be able to order the drink in a regular cup, but to receive the souvenir cup and glow cube, you’d need to pay a surcharge, because those are considered merchandise rather than food items. I've done this before – at one dining experience, my kiddo received a Pascal glow cube, and I HAD to have one for myself. It was a few extra dollars, and I thought that was totally worth it! 

    In my experience, there will likely be a wider variety of beverages available than what's listed on the online menu, so be sure to ask your server. Milk, chocolate milk, select juices, and sodas may be available. While specialty drinks like milkshakes and smoothies are included on the Disney Dining Plan, they are not always available on every menu, so the best thing to do is ask. 

    Laura, have the best time at Garden Grill Restaurant! My family decided to ride Living with the Land before heading to our meal there, which was really great because the restaurant slowly rotates through some of the attraction. It will also get you nice and hungry and ready for your delicious meal!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
