    Will the Dining plan be back anytime in 2021? We have a very large family and it made planning for meals so easy in the past.

    Hi again Michael, 

    Welcome back to planDisney and thank you for sending us another question!  We are always happy when guests come back and visit us again!  My family and I LOVE the Disney Dining Plan, for us it was always a great way to pre-plan and pre-pay for most of our dining before we left for our vacation at Walt Disney World Resort.  

    Currently, the Disney Dining Plan is temporarily unavailable for guests and may return at a later date.  If it does return prior to your visit, you will be able to add the Disney Dining Plan to your Walt Disney World Resort Vacation Package by speaking with a Cast Member.  I still recommend making Advanced Dining Reservations prior to your visit, if you have any Dining Locations that you would like to visit, as capacity is limited. At the moment Advanced Dining Reservations can be made up to 60 days in advance and can be made online on the Walt Disney World Resort Website.  

    A great way to save for your dining prior to your visit if the Disney Dining Plan does not become available, is to purchase Disney Gift Cards for your dining.  I like to research where we will be dining and come up with a budget for our meals and use the gift card instead of bringing cash.  This way I am able to keep track of what we have spent and it feels almost the same as using the Disney Dining Plan since I had pre-purchased my gift cards.  

    In the meantime, I suggest keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as well as the official Walt Disney World Resort website for any new announcements and for the most up to date information regarding all things Disney.  

    I hope this information was useful, Michael.  As always, if you have any other questions please come back and visit us here at planDisney, we are always happy yo help.
