    When will the 2018 dining plans be available for purchase?

    Hi Karen, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    If there is one topic I always enjoy discussing it's Disney Dining! Unfortunately at this time the 2018 Disney Dining Plan details have not yet been released. However, based on past history, I expect we should be seeing something by early summer. I suggest checking back with Disney at that time. 

    If you have already booked a room only Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation, you should be able to modify your reservation to add the Disney Dining Plan once full details of all of the various packages are released. Conversely, if you have made a reservation using Disney Vacation Club points, you should be able to add a Disney Dining Plan to your reservation either online or by calling Member Services at (800) 800-9800.

    In the meantime, I encourage you to start making a list now of all of the great Disney restaurants you wish to visit during your trip. If you are anything like me, one of the most challenging aspects of planning any Walt Disney World Resort vacation is narrowing down the list of all of our favorite Disney restaurants and dining experiences we wish to visit during our trip. If you have not already put it on your own list, I highly encourage you to make a visit to Be Our Guest Restaurant at Magic Kingdom Park. As you walk over the foot bridge leading to Beast's foreboding Castle, and step into the opulent dining rooms inside, you will feel as if you have been transported into the animated tale. Not to mention, the food is divine. And the grey stuff...it really is delicious!

    Wishing you all the best as you continue with your trip planning, Karen! Should you have any other questions, please send them our way. We would love to hEAR from you again!
