    We are coming in December to celebrate birthdays and anniversary is there any plans for the return of the dining plans?

    Hello there, Ruth! Thanks for stopping by planDisney to ask your question. December is such a wonderful time to visit the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. Everything is so festive and fun dressed up in its holiday best! You are going to have a wonderful time.

    Ruth, the million-dollar question right now is when will the Disney Dining Plan return? Here at planDisney, we are a group of people who love sharing our experience and expertise in planning a Disney vacation. Because we ourselves are Guests, we aren't privy to that type of insider information.

    A few months ago, the Disney Parks Blog released an article letting us all know that they've heard the outcry of love and support for the Disney Dining Plan and because of that they do intend to bring it back. At the time of the article, they were not ready to give us a date of when it would be released once again. Since then, we haven't heard any other information come out about the Disney Dining Plan. I will say that it is my opinion that it will be back very soon, I'm guessing at the start of next year. We are returning to a world of magic more and more every day. We've started to see a lot more Walt Disney World restaurants open back up and I think that is a huge step in the right direction. 

    If the Disney Dining Plan is released before your vacation, Ruth, I am certain you'll be able to add it on to your existing vacation package. Previously, Guests were able to add it up to 48 hours prior to their check-in day. Keep your eyes peeled over on the Disney Parks Blog for any announcement that may be made, that's where we are going to find out all of the details. 

    I'm sorry I don't have more of an update for you at this time. If you have any other questions before your trip, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm here to help. 

    Have fun and enjoy!

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
