    I am waiting for my ID renewal in the mail. Will my temporary paper ID be acceptable for alcohol purchase?

    Hiya Kayla! Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm excited about your upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! You are less than 10 days away from arriving on site and being a part of the magic! Countless new experiences have debuted in the past year, with the newest attraction being at the top of the list. Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind opened back in May and has quickly become a fan favorite. Many Guests have proclaimed it the best ride at any of the parks! 

    I'm sorry to hear you're still waiting on your ID renewal to come in the mail. I know for packages that I have been waiting on, it seems like shipments are taking longer to be delivered than they used to. In regards to your question, I was able to speak to a Cast Member about acceptable forms of identification to purchase alcoholic beverages at the parks and resorts. They informed me that a temporary paper ID is not an acceptable form of identification. However, if this ID is valid with your photo and birthdate, there is a chance they may accept this. This may be at the discretion of the establishment you are purchasing from, so I would check upon arrival to make sure that is the case.

    Kayla, I hope you plan to spend some time at EPCOT during your stay. The EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival is underway and has a variety of cuisine options from all around the world to try! I always like trying items from countries that are not normally represented in the World Showcase, such as the Brazil and Australia booths! The Pão de Queijo, which is Brazilian cheese bread, is a favorite of mine and appears on this year's menu. There is also the Fry Flight, which can be found at none other than The Fry Basket. This booth is new to the festival this year and has quickly become a popular item.

    I hope you have a magical time during your visit, Kayla! Stop back and see us again at planDisney!

    See ya real soon!
