    Hello! When will Disney dining plans return? We are looking to book February 2023 and were curious if they would be back for our vacation :)

    Hello, Julianna! Thanks for stopping by with your question. 

    Here at planDisney, Julianna, we are Guests just like you who have a passion for sharing our knowledge and expertise on planning amazing, pixie-dusted Disney vacations. Because I'm a regular Guest, I am not privy to the sort of behind-the-scenes information like when the Disney Dining Plan might return. I have my fingers crossed that it will return sooner rather than later. My family and I loved using the Disney Dining Plan on a number of past Walt Disney World vacations. It was so nice to have everything paid for ahead of time. 

    Julianna, the good news is that a few months back the Disney Parks Blog released an article letting us all know that they've heard the outcry of love and support for the Disney Dining Plan and there are plans in the works to bring it back. They just weren't sure of an updated timeframe but said they would keep us updated. That's kind of the last update we've had so far. We are returning to a world of magic more and more every day. We are seeing many Walt Disney World restaurants open back up and that can only mean good things for the return of the Disney Dining Plan. 

    Until then, Julianna, I would suggest collecting Disney Gift Cards between now and your vacation. I've been using them on dining during my Walt Disney World vacations and it is similar to the Disney Dining Plan because it is paid for ahead of time and has to be used for something at Walt Disney World. You can find Disney Gift Cards at most major retail locations. I like to add one to my grocery cart occasionally. It doesn't add a lot to my bill but I am always amazed at how quickly they can add up. Disney Gift Cards can also be a great gift for other people to give you during the holiday season. 

    I hope we will have another update on the Disney Dining Plan soon. Until then all we can do is wait. If you have any other questions, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm here to help. 

    Have a great week!

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
