    when will the dining plan return ?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Kim! 

    The Disney Dining Plan is such a fan favorite. I know my family and I have enjoyed using the program on many of our past Walt Disney World vacations. It was really nice having all aspects of a vacation paid for ahead of time. It truly allowed us to be in the moment and not have to stress over budgeting. It was great! 

    Here at planDisney, Kim, we are a group of people who love sharing our knowledge and expertise on planning awesome trips to Disney destinations. If you'd like a resort recommendation, I've got you covered. Want to book the perfect spot for a birthday dinner? I'm your girl. However, since we are actually all Guests ourselves we are not privy to the behind-the-scenes information like when the Disney Dining Plan might return. I've been keeping an eye out over on the Disney Parks Blog because when an announcement is made, that's going to be where we find out all of the information. 

    If the Disney Dining Plan returns before your vacation later this summer, I'm pretty sure you'll be able to add it on to your existing vacation package if you would like. Previously, Guests could add the Dining Plan option up to 48 hours before their arrival date. I really do think when we see it return, it will look similar to this once again. 

    A great way to budget for food and drinks for your upcoming vacation is to check out the specific restaurant menus that you are planning on dining at. Each restaurant has its menu posted and you'll see all of the prices listed. If you go through where you think you might eat and kind of tally up what your family likes to order, you'll have a good idea of the amount you'll need to budget for. 

    I'm sorry I don't have more of an update, Kim. If you have any other questions as you finalize plans for your trip, 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
