    Is the dining plan available?

    Hey there, Jonathan! Welcome to planDisney!

    Part of any plan for an amazing Walt Disney World Resort vacation has to include food! There's so much gastronomic goodness to discover, it really helps to budget for it ahead of time. I know lots of Guests have found the Disney Dining Plan to be a great tool for doing just that. While the Disney Parks Blog did announce a couple of weeks ago that the Disney Dining Plan would be returning, we haven't gotten an update as to exactly when that would happen. My best advice to you right now is to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog so you'll know when the Disney Dining Plan will be coming back to a plate near you!

    In the meantime, my fellow planDisney panelist Sarah B. has a great idea - take the money you would have spent on the dining plan and put it on a Disney Gift Card! You can use the gift card for your meals, so it's like your own personal dining plan.

    And Jonathan, you'll definitely be able to get some use out of that gift card at the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, which is officially underway right now! Take a look at the incredible food and beverage offerings available, and use your Disney Gift Card to pay at the Global Marketplace kiosks. It's a really convenient way to taste your way around the world!

    I hope this helps you enjoy all the flavors of the Walt Disney World Resort, Jonathan. Have a blast, and please come see us again if you have any more questions!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
