    Would like to buy the dining plan. Not available. Will it be in December 2021? when I arrive

    Hello there, Fred. I'm so glad you've stopped by planDisney to chat about the Disney Dining Plan. 

    Fred, the Disney Dining Plan is such a fan favorite. I know my family and I have enjoyed using the program many times over the years. It's really nice to have every aspect of a Walt Disney World vacation paid for ahead of time. Plus, the restaurants and menu offerings are absolutely delicious and it was so fun not to have to worry about the price of an entree. It could be a totally yes vacation when it came to dining. 

    As you stated, the Disney Dining Plan is still currently unavailable. It has not yet returned to us since the shutdown of Walt Disney World last year. Several Walt Disney World restaurants and food offerings have remained closed which I think plays a role in why we haven't seen the Disney Dining Plan back yet. However, lately, I've noticed a lot of reopenings when it comes to dining locations which I think is a step in the right direction. A few months ago the Disney Parks Blog released an article letting us know that they've heard the outcry of love and support for the Disney Dining Plan and reassuring us that it will eventually return to Walt Disney World. They just weren't sure of a date at that time. Since then we really haven't had any updates regarding the Disney Dining Plan. It's my opinion that we probably won't see it back until after the first of the year - but again that is just my opinion and I don't really have anything to base that off of. 

    If the Disney Dining Plan does return before your vacation in December, you would most certainly be able to add it on to your existing vacation package. Previously, Guests had up to 48 hours prior to their check-in date to add it on and I do think it will look similar to this again. 

    Be sure to keep an eye over on the Disney Parks Blog for any future announcements made about the Disney Dining Plan, Fred, or feel free to drop back by over here and ask me. I'm happy to help. 

    Have fun and enjoy your vacation!

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
