    Hi, I have booked to visit Walt Disney World in July 2024 with a different travel company than Disney, will i be able to add on the dining plan once this has been released? Thanks

    Hi Faye, welcome to planDisney. It's my pleasure to answer your question today, especially as I'm delighted about the magical news that Disney's Dining Plans (along with some other exciting updates) are returning to Walt Disney World in 2024.

    Guests can select either the Disney Quick Service Dining Plan or the Disney Dining Plan -  both offer great value and access to the spectacular food and drinks available. From the end of May, as long as your package includes a Disney Resort hotel stay, you should be able to add a Disney Dining plan. One thing to note, if you have taken advantage of the fabulous 2024 Early Booker package, the Dining & Merchandise credit included cannot be used to pay for a dining plan. You can still purchase a dining plan, use the credit to boost it, or make all the merchandise buys!

    Full details on the Dining Plans are set to be released on 31 May 2023. In the meantime, please ensure your plans are linked to your My Disney Experience account, including tickets and your Disney Resort hotel reservation. That way, when you contact Walt Disney World Travel Company to include a Disney Dining Plan, all your details will be available. 

    Now, I can't seem to talk about Dining Plans without reminiscing about some of my favoured dining spots - right now, I really wish I could have lunch at Garden Grill Restaurant. Charming character interactions with delicious fresh, family-style food - seriously, the cornbread is the best I've ever had! Please remember that Advanced Dining reservations open up 60 days ahead of your arrival date! 

    Faye, I wish you the most delicious culinary adventure at Walt Disney World! Please pop back here with any further questions, Louise.
