    we arent planning our disney trip until september of 2023. are they planning to restart the dining plans anytime soon? we really enjoyed that part of our last visit there. should i wait a few months to plan our trip?

    Hey Howdy Hey Keith,

    Welcome back to planDisney. It is great to see you again! It is never to early to begin planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. September is always a wonderful month to visit as typically the crowds diminish a little as kids return to school and usually the Florida heat has begun to ease. 

    We are huge fans of the Disney Dining Plans. As a family of six, with five very hungry young men, I love being able to budget for the majority of our meals in advance. Plus, knowing we have the dining plan paid for, gives us even more of a reason to select our favorite restaurants and make advanced dining reservations. It also makes it much easier to say yes to that Mickey's Premium ice cream bar. Unfortunately, there has not been an official announcement regarding the return of the dining plans. The good news is each time I speak with a Cast Member, they have assured me that the dining plan is just temporarily suspended and should be returning in the near future. I certainly hope that means before your visit, but there is no return date yet. I would keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as they will be sure to share the news as soon as an official return date is announced. 

    Stay tuned for updates as they are available and in the meantime, if I can help with any additional planning questions, please stop back and see me
