    When will the dining plan be available?

    Howdy, Melissa! 

    It’s been a tough bite to swallow with the Disney Dining Plan being unavailable. So many guests use this awesome tool when traveling to the Walt Disney World Resorts. 

    While there is no official date of when it might be returning, rest assured that should the dining plan return before your trip, you can absolutely add it onto your package. You will do this by calling in, the list of phone numbers can be found here

    Should it not return before your trip, one of my tips is to purchase Disney Gift Cards in the amount of what your dining plan would cost. You can combine the cards online, onto 1-2 cards ($1000 is the maximum per card). Then, use those cards for EVERYTHING that your family eats or drinks. You might be pleasantly surprised, I know I was when I did this little experiment. 

    When making your dining reservations 60 days before your trip, I highly recommend Olivia's Café at Disney’s Old Key West Resort for ANY meal of the day! I have never been disappointed with my food here. And, don’t forget that Mickey-shaped food is always better, so be sure to get a Mickey Premium Ice Cream Sandwich in the parks! 

    One of my other favorite snacks is the Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich at Sleepy Hollow in Magic Kingdom. This delightful treat is only available until 11:00am currently, so be sure to plan accordingly. Fresh berries, bananas, Nutella, and waffle…you can’t go wrong! Plus, it’s large enough to share. 

    Please come back to planDisney with more questions that you think of while you are planning your trip to the most magical place on Earth! 

    Happy Planning,
    Tracy

GAWRSH! Hiya pals! I am a Goofy-loving mom of 2, who is married to my real-life Prince Charming. My family supports my passion for all things Disney. Walt Disney World was my very first vacation, when I was just 3 months old, and I recently completed my 73rd trip to a Disney location! I have been fortune enough to parasail high above the Disney Fantasy, attend opening day of Batuu, snorkel in the lagoon at Disney's Aulani, and SO MUCH MORE! I can't wait to help you plan your Disney vacation!
