    I already my vacation booked and planned.....Disney announced months ago that the dinning plan would be back....my vacation starts December 31-January 7 and we want to add the dinning plan to our reservation....what is going on with Dinning PLans?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Adam! Thanks for stopping by with your question.

    Here at planDisney, we are a group of moms, dads, aunts, uncles, grandparents and even puppy parents that love sharing our knowledge of visiting the Walt Disney World Theme Parks with other Guests just like us! Because of this, I'm actually not privy to any "insider information" and am not really sure when the Disney Dining Plans are coming back. They certainly are a fan favorite and very missed by a lot of people. I know that I've enjoyed the Disney Dining Plan on many of my previous vacations. It was nice having everything paid for ahead of time. It really took being in vacation mode to the next level.

    I do know that we are returning to a world of magic more and more every day and I wouldn't be surprised if the Disney Dining Plan returns to us very soon. I've noticed that a lot more of the Walt Disney World restaurants have opened back up lately and I think that is a very good sign!  If the Disney Dining Plan does return before your vacation at the end of the year, you will most certainly be able to add it on to your existing vacation package. Previously, Guests had up to 48 hours prior to their vacation check-in to add it and I think it will look similar to this again. 

    I know you've heard it before, but do keep an eye out over on the Disney Parks Blog for any announcements about when the Disney Dining Plan may return. When an announcement is made, we will be able to find out all of the details over there. I'm sorry I don't have more of an update for you at this time, Adam. If you have any other questions about your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help. Have fun!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
