Starting in 2018, guests over 21 years of age can have an alcoholic beverage with their quick service and table service meal credits. This does not appear to be the case for the 2017 dining plans this year.
The 2018 standard dining plan is now said to include (for each guest each day):
- 1 Self Service meal (quick service) - 1 Waiter Service meal (table service) - 1 non-alcoholic/alcoholic drink per meal - 2 selected Snacks
The alcoholic drinks available will be beer, cider, sangria, wine and cocktails. This is great news for adults as it really does increase the value of the dining plan (if you like to drink), rather than having a coke or soda which usually only costs $3. Some cocktails go for over $12 so you can really squeeze some extra value of the meal credits.
Nothing seems to have changed for guests under 21, although I believe you can have the non-alcoholic versions of the cocktails where available.
