    Are dining packages available?

    Hi Alyssa!

    It sounds like you are planning a vacation to Walt Disney World Resort and you've picked a great time to come! The entire resort is in full party mode for the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration. You will be able to enjoy special entertainment, exclusive anniversary merchandise and incredible tasty treats throughout the theme parks, Disney Resorts Collection hotels and Disney Springs.

    Unfortunately, the Disney dining plans are temporarily unavailable and we don't have any information about when they will return. However, quite a few new and returning things are making their way to Walt Disney World Resort for Guests to enjoy. I recommend that you keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as you continue planning your trip for announcements about everything you will be able to experience during your vacation. The dining plans are great because they allow you to pay for the majority of your dining expenses in advance, so hopefully, we will hear about their return soon!

    Right now, I think Disney Gift Cards are a great alternative for the dining plan. You can purchase gift cards in advance of your vacation and use them throughout your trip for your dining and merchandise purchases around Walt Disney World Resort. I like to pay for my dining and merchandise purchases using my MagicBand, which charges those purchases to my hotel account. Then, I use my Disney Gift Cards to pay for my hotel account by visiting the front desk of my Disney Resorts Collection hotel. This way, I don't have to retrieve my gift cards while I'm enjoying the theme parks, but I can still use them to pay for my expenses during my vacation!

    Please come back to see us at planDisney if you have additional questions for us as you continue planning. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
