    When will I be able to add on a meal plan to my current disney vacation?

    Hi Chauntee!

    It sounds like you may be well on your way towards planning your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation! There is so much at the theme parks, Disney Resorts Collection hotels and Disney Springs for you to enjoy right now. You'll find that quite a few new things are making their way to the theme parks that you can experience and the entire resort is joining in the festivities for the Walt Disney World Resort 50th Anniversary Celebration!

    Unfortunately, the Disney dining plans are currently not available and we don't have any insight on when they will return. I recommend that you keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for the latest announcements about favorites that are returning for Guests to enjoy during their trips. Even if you can't add one of the dining plans to your vacation, you can still enjoy the incredible dining experiences at Walt Disney World Resort. Since it sounds like you are planning on staying at one of the Disney Resorts Collection hotels, then you can use your MagicBand to pay for your meals, which will work very similarly to the dining plan. Your meals will simply be charged to your hotel account, rather than to your dining plan.

    Chauntee, be sure to take advantage of Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering during your vacation. It's a great way to enjoy many of the quick service dining experiences at Walt Disney World Resort without having to wait in their queues! Plus, you will find that many table service restaurants now offer Mobile Ordering options so you can enjoy their amazing food to-go. My family used Mobile Ordering to enjoy Ale & Compass during our vacation last month and it was fantastic to have their incredible food while we relaxed in our hotel room!

    Please come back to see us at planDisney if we can help you as you continue planning your trip. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
