    When will dining plans be available

    Hi Kathleen!

    It sounds like you're ready to plan your next trip to Walt Disney World Resort and right now is a great time to visit! The Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration is in full swing, which means you'll be able to join in the birthday party for the "Most Magical Place on Earth." Plus, you'll find quite a few new experiences to enjoy during your visit. Did you see that Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind opened a few weeks ago? I can't wait to try this new coaster!

    The Disney dining plans are one of my favorite ways to enjoy a wide variety of tasty culinary experiences during a trip to Walt Disney World Resort. Unfortunately, the Disney dining plans are all still temporarily unavailable and we don't have a timeline for their return. I recommend that you keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as you plan your next trip for the latest news and announcements and hopefully, we will hear about the return of the beloved dining plans soon!

    Kathleen, in the meantime, I recommend that you consider using Disney Gift Cards to pay for your dining expenses. You can use the online menus for each of the restaurants you are planning on visiting to get an idea of the approximate cost of each of your meals and a total food budget for your trip. Then you can purchase a gift card for the amount of your food budget that you can use throughout your visit to cover the cost of your meals!

    Let us know if you have any additional questions as you continue planning. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
