With the release of the 2018 Walt Disney World room rates and package rates, the Disney Dining Plan has increased its cost and added the ability to purchase alcoholic beverages using your plan. The cost increase is 12 to 13%!
It would be good news for those who wish to order an alcoholic beverage with their meal, but those do choose not to imbibe are coming out FAR behind. If you and your family do not consume alcoholic beverages, you may wish to just purchase your meals out of pocket (MagicBand, Credit Card, Cash) in 2018.
If a guest wishes to order more than 1 alcoholic beverage per meal, they will be required to purchase the additional one out of pocket as well.
