    Will Disney be bringing back the Disney Dining Plans?

    Hi, there!

     Jennifer, I'm so excited to hear you're planning an Autumn visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. You'll Fall into magic!

     I am a huge fan of the Disney Dining Plans. As a mom of three, I always appreciated the convenience of having our meals, beverages, and snacks paid for ahead of time! I also loved how flexible each plan was. To answer your question, there's been no news about whether or not the Disney Dining Plans will be available for purchase again. Like you, I'm certainly hoping to hear they'll make a return to the Walt Disney World Resort! My best advice is to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog between now and your arrival. It's your best resource for news and updates about Disney Parks and destinations! If there are any announcements made about the Disney Dining Plans, you'll surely see them posted on the Disney Parks Blog. 

     If the Disney Dining Plans do not return by the time of your visit, I suggest purchasing Disney Gift Cards in the amount that you would have spent on adding a dining plan to your vacation package. The Disney Gift Cards will give you the sense of that prepaid freedom you experience with a dining plan! When it's time to pay for a meal, simply charge your purchase to your Disney Resort hotel room and then stop by the Front Desk to pay down those charges with your Disney Gift Cards. 

     Have you heard the news about "The World's Most Magical Celebration?" This special event celebrating Walt Disney World Resort's 50th anniversary begins on October 1, just a few weeks ahead of your stay. I can't wait to join in on the celebration!

     I hope this was helpful, Jennifer. Please let us know if you have any other questions! We'd love to help you plan a magical visit.
