    If Disney dining plans come back after I book my trip, can they be added onto my booking later?

    Hey there, Kelli! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. I see that you have your vacation planned for December. It's my very favorite time to be at the parks. All of the Christmas decorations just makes it that much more magical. You are going to have a great time! 

    Kelli, I used to really enjoy using the Disney Dining Plan and I am guessing you were a fan too. It was so nice to have everything paid for ahead of time and then truly be in vacation mode! At this time there is still no word if or when the Disney Dining Plan might return to us. If it does, I am not sure it will look the same. However, if it does you would be able to add the Disney Dining Plan on to your existing reservation up to 48 hours prior to your vacation. To do this, you would need to call (407) 939-5277 and have a Cast Member assist you with this. 

    If the Disney Dining Plan does not return before your trip, I do have a suggestion for you. Between now and then when you are at the store pick up a Disney gift card every now and then. I like to add them to my grocery cart each week. As the trip rolls around you will have plenty set aside in the form of Disney gift cards to use for splurgy meals and snacks at Walt Disney World. I like to do it this way because then the money is already taken out of my bank account and has to be used for something on vacation. The one thing I liked about the Disney Dining Plan was ordering the most expensive menu item if I wanted and not even thinking twice about it. If the money is already gone and on a Disney gift card it makes it a little bit easier to not worry about the price of things so much. 

    Kelli, I have my fingers crossed that the Disney Dining Plan will make its way back to us sooner rather than later. If you have any other questions about your vacation, please feel free to come back and ask me. I'm happy to help!

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
