    I was wondering if you can use the dining plan at the food and wine booths. If you changed a counter service credit to snacks can you utilize the alcohol portion of the counter service meal as well as the 3 snacks it transfers to.

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Christine!

    I am a big fan of the Disney Dining Plan, and one of my favorite times of year to use it is during the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. The Global Marketplaces that pop up during the Festival feature hundreds of incredible dishes, and a lot of them can be enjoyed for just a Snack credit if you're using the Dining Plan! When you see the purple and white Disney Dining Plan logo next to the menu item you want to try, that's how you'll know that you can redeem a Snack credit to order it.

    You must be a Walt Disney World Resort expert because you know that great insider tip that you can convert a Quick-Service credit into three Snack credits at the Front Desk of your Resort Hotel. When you make this conversion, the value of your Quick-Service credit, including the beverage, is broken down into three Snack credits that can be used anywhere you want. Alcoholic drinks are not Snack credit-eligible, so you would not be able to use them to try any wine or specialty cocktails. If you still want to enjoy those beverages, you can tap your MagicBand when you're redeeming your Dining Plan credits and it will charge the remaining amount to your room for you to settle at the end of your trip. 

    Have some crab cakes for me, Christine!
