    When will dining plans be available?

    Welcome, foolish mortal, to planDisney!

    Elizabeth, we’ve been dying to meet you. What a ghoulish delight it is that you finally found your way here amongst our crew of playful spooks! You’ve chosen the perfect year to visit The Most Magical Place on Earth. Between the 50th Anniversary Celebration festivities and the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, you're in for a real treat on your vacation!

    You know, I was just having a conversation with Madame Leota over at the Haunted Mansion not too long ago about the return of the Disney Dining Plans. I was sure her psychic abilities could reach into the somewhere beyond and conjure up an answer as to when they will return. She whispered a special incantation …

    Wizards and witches, wherever you dwell, give us a hint on the return of the Disney Dining Plans, by ringing a bell!

    … But, alas, the spirits weren’t being very cooperative and no answer was given. Unfortunately, that means I have no news I can share at this time. Trust me, I am just as eager as you for the dining plans to rise back to life, but it looks like you and I will have to continue monitoring the Disney Parks Blog and Disney Parks Instagram account for further updates. In the meantime, perhaps you could utilize Disney Gift Cards to budget for your meals? My husband and I always bring a preloaded gift card with us and use it to pay for meals throughout our vacation. It works out pretty well for us, so maybe it will work for you too.

    Elizabeth, while I can't provide you with the ghastly details you were hoping for on the Disney Dining Plans, I am certain you will have a frightfully good time on your Walt Disney World Resort vacation no matter what. If you haven’t already done so though, I highly recommend you make your Theme Park Reservations via the Disney Park Pass webpage as soon as possible for your best shot at snagging the reservations you want.

    There may be 999 happy questions here, Elizabeth, but there's always room for one more. Please stop back by planDisney for a spell if we can be of further service. Have a spooktacular vacation!

    Hurry back,
