    Is the Disney dining plan available?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Bob. I'm so glad you've stopped by here to chat about one of my favorite things - Disney dining! 

    The Disney Dining Plan is an all-time fan favorite add-on to a Walt Disney World vacation. I know my family and I have enjoyed using the program on many past Walt Disney World vacations. It was so nice to have everything paid for ahead of time. It truly took the pressure off of having to look at prices and budget. Right now, Bob, the Disney Dining Plan is still currently unavailable. It has not yet returned to us since the shutdown of Walt Disney World last year. 

    The good news is that we have confirmation that the Disney Dining Plan will indeed be returning to us at some point. The Disney Parks Blog released an article a few months ago reassuring fans that they hear us and do have plans to bring it back. At that time, they just weren't sure as to when just yet. Since then, there really hasn't been another update regarding the Disney Dining Plan. We are returning to a world of magic more and more every day. In the past month or so, we've seen several restaurants at Walt Disney World reopen for business. I am certain this is a step in the right direction. 

    It's just my opinion but I do feel like we will see the Disney Dining Plan return toward the start of next year. If you already have a vacation booked, I think you'll be able to add it to your existing vacation package with no problems. When the Disney Dining Plan was being offered, you could add it up to 48 hours prior to a vacation. I am certain it will be similar to this again. 

    I'm sorry I don't have more of an update for you at this time, Bob. If you have any other questions about a Walt Disney World vacation, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help. 

    Have a great day!

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
