    Will the dining plans be returning soon? If so, when?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Denise. I always love seeing a fellow North Carolinian stop by to ask us a question. 

    Denise, here at planDisney we are a group of moms, dads, aunts, uncles, grandparents and even puppy parents that love sharing our knowledge about planning a really great Disney vacation. Because we are Guests ourselves, we aren't privy to insider information like when the Disney Dining Plan may make its return. The million-dollar question at the moment is most definitely when will the Disney Dining Plan be returning. But, unfortunately, we just don't know yet. 

    The good news is that we do know for sure that it will, eventually, return to us. The Disney Parks Blog released an article a few months ago reassuring us that the fan-favorite will, indeed, be back. I don't think it will be too much longer though Denise. We are returning to a world of magic more and more every day. I've noticed an increase in the restaurants opening back up for reservations lately and that is most definitely a step in the right direction. It's my guess that it will return after the start of the new year sometime which I know won't help you for your upcoming vacation. If something crazy does happen and it does return before your trip in a week and a half, I am certain that you'll be able to add it to your existing vacation package. If it looks anything like it did before, Guests had up to 48 hours prior to their check-in date to add it on. 

    I'm sorry I don't have more of an update for you at this time, Denise. If you have any other questions before your trip, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help. 

    Enjoy and have a magical time!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
