    Will the Disney dining Plan be returning by September 2022?

    Hi there, Tina!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. 

    One of the most fun parts of being in the planning stages of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is deciding what delicious food to eat each day. There are so many awesome dining experiences available throughout the theme parks and resorts to choose from. There are certainly options to please every palate when you visit The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    One Guest offering that my family has always enjoyed is the Disney Dining Plan. With the purchase of the Disney Dining Plan as part of your vacation package, you're able to prepay for the meals you'll enjoy during your Walt Disney World vacation. Based on the number of nights you’re staying at your Disney Resort hotel and which plan you choose, you're allotted a select number of meal and snack credits/entitlements that can be used throughout your vacation. There are typically several different dining packages offered, and Guests are able to choose which one would work best for their travel party. By using the Disney Dining Plan, we were always able to take the guesswork out of budgeting our travel funds for meals each day and were able to splurge on fancier dining experiences than when we had to pay out of pocket per meal.

    During Walt Disney World Resort's phased reopening, select Guest offerings have been paused until further notice, and, unfortunately, the Disney Dining Plan is one of those offerings at this time. My fingers are crossed that we will get news of a dining plan relaunch sometime soon. If so, you should be able to add it to your vacation package up to 48 hours before your arrival date. So far, there have been no announcements about reinstating dining plan options, but I'm sure they are carefully considering it since it is such a Guest favorite! I encourage you to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for any breaking news or announcements regarding the return of the Disney Dining Plan.
