    Hallie from TN Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Are the dining plans not available with packages right now?

    Howdy Hallie!

    Welcome to planDisney!  When you get a “Rumbly in your Tumbly,” the Walt Disney World Resort offers many types of cuisines to enjoy!  Thank you for sharing your question with us!

    I love all of the Disney Dining Plans, and I always look forward to trying new dining experiences!  Currently, all Disney Dining Plans have been placed on pause, and we do not have a date as to when they will return.  I recently visited the Walt Disney World Resort without the Disney Dining Plan.  My family and I took the opportunity to try dining options that we would not have experienced on a Disney Dining Plan.  We are Disney Dining Plan fans, but we also enjoyed mixing it up a bit.  In the “Know Before You Go” site, you can look through the different dining options that have reopened at the Walt Disney World Resort and make your list of new adventures you might want to try!  I have placed a link in the above “Know Before You Go” text so you can scan through all your options at your leisure.

    At this time, your window to begin making dining reservations is 60-days before your check-in date.  This window makes it easier to obtain reservations if you decide to book your vacation a couple of months in advance.  I always enjoy having one nice table-service per day for everyone to sit, relax and talk about the day’s activities.  

    To stay up-to-date on all the changes, new attractions, and new dining experiences, check the Disney Parks Blog!  The Disney Parks Blog is the best place to learn about all the exciting things on the horizon!  I like to check the Disney Parks Blog regularly for all the celebrations coming in 2021!  Mickey and his pals opened their doors to guests in 1971, and this year will mark 50 years of “Making Dreams Come True!”  I know you would like to stay informed of all the EPIC things planned to commemorate this mark in Walt Disney World history! 
    To learn about all the festivities, keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all upcoming announcements!

    If you have any more questions while you are planning, please come back to planDisney, Hallie!  We look forward to helping you again!

    See Ya Real Soon,
