Disney Dining Plans to Feature More Beverage Options in 2018


Based on Guest feedback, the Disney Dining Plans included with 2018 Magic Your Way vacation packages will be expanded, offering more beverage options for Guests to choose from when enjoying quick-service and table-service meals. New options include non-alcoholic premium beverages – like frozen specialty beverages, teas, and specialty coffees – and the majority of alcoholic beverages (available to Guests age 21 and over) served at participating restaurants.

The number of meals will remain the same for each plan, and beginning in 2018, expanded beverage options may be ordered with each meal included in that dining plan:
  • Quick Service Dining Plan – 2 quick-service meals per person/night;
  • Disney Dining Plan – 1 quick-service meal and 1 table-service meal per person/night;
  • Deluxe Dining Plan – 3 quick-service or table-service meals per person/night.
Please, note that snacks and refillable resort mugs will not include alcoholic beverages.

2018 Magic Your Way vacation packages with Disney dining plans that include these new beverage options, along with pricing adjustments, are available now for Guests booking Walt Disney World Resort reservations beginning January 1, 2018.
