    Will the Disney Dining Plan program be running by May 2022?

    Hi there, Karla! We're so glad you stopped by with your question.

    Karla, I have been to Walt Disney World at least a handful of times since the reopening. Every time, I hop on the Haunted Mansion ride, get up to Madame Leota and her crystal ball, and I close my eyes to send her a telepathic message to conjure a spirit that can answer this very question. When will the Disney Dining Plan be returning? Not one spirit has materialized to give me the answer - not even the hitchhiking ghosts.

    The best we can do at this point, Karla, is to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog, where you'll find the latest news and information on the theme parks and resorts. As soon as information about the return of the dining plan is available, we can be certain they'll have something posted there. I will absolutely keep my fingers crossed for you that it happens in time for your upcoming trip.

    I did learn an awesome tip from one of my fellow panelists to help budget for food in a way similar to the dining plan. Browse the restaurants and menus to choose the ones you think you'd like to experience when you get to Disney World. When you work out a budget of what you think you might spend, put that money on a Disney gift card. Then when you want to pay for a meal or a snack, use that card. You'll be able to know exactly what you have left and how much you've spent, similar to the credits you'd have on the dining plan.

    I hope you enjoy some wonderful meals!
