  • Wow the price increase actually isn’t that bad considering how much they charge for alcohol in the parks. Good to know that new decency regulator we installed is still working. Fingers crossed it doesn’t malfunction like the rest, or else there may be a sudden additional charge for getting to sit with your family.

  • We don’t drink and we don’t want a smoothie or milkshake with our meals either. So we will be paying almost $100 more for something we won’t use. Disney needs to offer a non-alcoholic dining plan as well.

  • Why wouldn’t they offer a no alcohol plan option?

    Guests under 21 pay the same as guests 21 & over and only get one drink… Doesn’t make sense.

  • I get this for specialty NA drinks, but does this mean you won’t get refills on iced tea or soda?

    [Because clearly, a lack of refills is what will mean the difference between going or not! :) ]

  • Judging by the comments so far, y’all could use the drink that’s included in the plan now. Lighten up people and enjoy yourselves. YOLO. Life’s too short.

  • I don’t drink. Why do I have to pay for a service that I will not use? Additionally, it is a place where there are plenty of kids, why are alcool allowed? I think if you are forbidden to smoke, you shouldn’t drink any alcoolic drinks. Anyway, are there prices avalible for those that don’t drink?

  • Wow some of you people are ridiculous. Offering specialty drinks is just a way to mask the price increase by creating an illusion of value. They increase prices all the time without offering anything additional. There are plenty of non alcoholic specialty drinks besides milkshakes, smoothies, and hot chocolate that will appeal to almost anyone. Everyone is focusing only on the alcohol and it just sounds like a condemnation of alcohol in general. Get over yourselves people, and have a drink. The first round’ is on Disney.
