    Is the Dining Plan available to purchase for our trip in May, 2022?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Tracey. I'm so glad you've stopped by to chat about your Walt Disney World vacation later this spring. 

    Tracey, as of right now, the Disney Dining Plan remains temporarily suspended. We don't know when it may make its long-anticipated return. I do know that the Disney Dining Plan is eventually going to come back. A few months ago, the Disney Parks Blog released an article letting us know they've heard the outcry of love and support for the Disney Dining Plan and wanted to reassure fans that it was, indeed, going to eventually return. At that time they were not ready to release a date that we might see it back. That's the last update that we've had. 

    If the Disney Dining Plan is released before your vacation, Tracey, I am certain you will be able to add it on to your existing reservation package. If it looks anything like it did before, you'll probably have up to 48 hours prior to your vacation to add it on. 

    In the meantime, I've been recommending for people to stock up on Disney Gift Cards to use on dining while on vacation. This is similar to the Disney Dining Plan because it's paid for ahead of time and has to be used for something at Walt Disney World. You can find Disney Gift Cards at most major retail locations or online. I like to pick them up when I am grocery shopping. It doesn't add that much to my bill but I am always amazed at how quickly they add up. If the Disney Dining Plan does come back in time for your vacation, you can in turn use those Disney Gift Cards to pay off the balance of your vacation. It's really a win-win!

    I'm sorry I don't have any more information about the Disney Dining Plan for you at this time, Tracey. If you have any other questions, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm here to help. 

    Have fun!

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
