  • Carolyn,
    The only items that you will be able to pay for with any of your Dining plan credits are most of the food booth items, but not the alcoholic ones (unless that changed recently) Be sure to check the booth menus themselves for the little symbol that indicates that you can use the DDP to pay for it as there are a small number of even food items that won’t qualify as a snack credit. All of the special events you will have to pay for out of pocket. Sorry!

  • Is there a page that shows what dinning plans are accepted for food and wine festival?

  • i am looking at comments I would love to know if you are going to offer ultimate vip tour at epcot food and wine this year ours was cancelled due to hurricane last year

  • I’ve been trying since Tuesday (DVC and AP early access) to book the Signature Dining at Flying Fish on 10/26! During early access, the cast members couldn’t find it. Now they tell me they can see it but can’t book it. These are unfortunately not available online. PLEASE HELP!
