    If Dining Plans do come back and I have already booked my resort and ticket package am I able to add the dining plan to my existing package? Thank you!

    Hi there, Nancy! 

    I know you, like SO many guests, are missing the Disney Dining Plan! While there is no official date of when the Dining Plan might be returning, rest assured that should it return before your trip, you can absolutely add this onto your Walt Disney World package. You will do this by calling in, the list of phone numbers can be found here

    Should the dining plan not return before your trip, one of my tips is to purchase Disney Gift Cards in the amount of what your dining plan would cost. You can combine the cards online, onto 1-2 cards ($1000 is the maximum per card). Then, use those cards for EVERYTHING that your family eats or drinks. You might be pleasantly surprised; I know I was when I did this experiment in 2014. 

    When making your dining reservations at 60 days before your trip, I highly recommend Olivia's Café at Disney’s Old Key West Resort for ANY meal of the day! I have never been disappointed with my food here. I also am a huge fan of Narcoosee’s, located at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. This was one of the best splurge meals I have ever eaten at Walt Disney World.  

    One last recommendation is the Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich at Sleepy Hollow in Magic Kingdom. This delightful treat is only available until 11:00am currently, so be sure to plan accordingly. Fresh berries, bananas, Nutella, and waffle…you can’t go wrong! Plus, it’s large enough to share. It makes a great breakfast, and you can even use the mobile ordering in the MyDisneyExperience app to order this while you are en route to Magic Kingdom! 

    Please come back to planDisney with more questions that you think of while you are planning your trip to WDW! 

    Happy Planning,
