    Will the Dining plan return by next year?

    Welcome to planDisney, Monica!

    Thanks for being our Guest. One of the things that makes a Walt Disney World vacation so magical is the food. I always look forward to eating at some of their amazing restaurants

    The Disney Dining Plan is certainly a fan favorite. It's a convenient way to have all of your meals paid for ahead of time. Unfortunately, we still don't know when the Disney Dining Plan will return. I wish I could give you a better answer. Earlier this year, Disney Parks Blog announced that they are planning on bringing it back. So it's on Disney's to-do list! However, as of now, we're not sure when this will be. Hopefully, it will return by next year. But the truth is that we still don't know.

    I know that's disappointing news. However, I have a suggestion for you that I think is even better than the Disney Dining Plan. Yes, you read that correctly. Here it is: purchase a bunch of Disney Gift Cards ahead of your trip. You can then bring these with you in order to pay for your meals. This method isn't really that different from the Disney Dining Plan. You're still basically paying for your meals ahead of time. However, here's why I think it's better: if you have money left over, it won't go to waste. You can use it to buy some extra souvenirs! You can purchase Disney Gift Cards from many major retail locations. Sometimes, I've noticed certain stores even offering deals on them (e.g. $45 for a $50 Disney Gift Card). I did this myself for my family's last Disney vacation and it was great. 

    I hope that's helpful, Monica! Thanks for stopping by planDisney.
