    When are the dining plans returning? We have reservations on the resort in May 2022.

    Hi Carol!

    I'm excited to hear that you will be visiting Walt Disney World Resort this May! I love visiting the "Most Magical Place on Earth" during the springtime because you can enjoy the theme parks, Disney Resorts Collection hotels and Disney Springs while they are in full bloom. Be sure to visit the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival to enjoy springtime with all five of your senses!

    One of my favorite ways to enjoy incredible dining experiences during a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is with the Disney Dining Plans. It's so nice to experience amazing food during your trip while paying for the majority of your dining expenses in advance. Unfortunately, the dining plans are currently unavailable and we don't have a timeline for when they will return. I recommend that you follow the Disney Parks Blog for announcements about returning vacation options and experiences that you can add to your upcoming trip. Hopefully, we will get news about the dining plans in time for your visit!

    Carol, even if the dining plans aren't available for your trip, you can still enjoy fantastic food during your visit. You may want to consider using Disney Gift Cards for your vacation expenses, which I've found to be another great way to pay for many of your expenses in advance of your visit. Also, be sure to take advantage of Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering, which is my favorite way to save time while dining in the theme parks!

    Let us know if we can help you again as your trip approaches. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
