    Hi, Does Disney have plans to bring back meal plans?

    Hi there, Kathy. Welcome to planDisney

    So many people are curious to know if the Disney Dining Plan will make a return to Walt Disney World. It really is a fan favorite. I know I enjoyed using it on numerous past vacations as well. 

    Here at planDisney, however, we are a group of people who love sharing our knowledge about planning stellar vacations to Disney destinations. Need a restaurant recommendation for a birthday? I've got you covered! Want to know the best resort hotel for your family? I have suggestions in every price range. With that being said, we are regular Guests ourselves and aren't privy to the behind-the-scenes knowledge about whether or not the Disney Dining Plan will eventually return. 

    In the last update we had, the Disney Parks Blog did say they plan to bring it back but at the time they weren't sure of when. That's the last that we've officially heard on the subject. I will say, more and more restaurants are opening back up so that is a step in the right direction. 

    Between now and your trip next year, I recommend stocking up on Disney Gift Cards to use on dining while you are there. This is a great way to budget for food and snacks. It's similar to the Disney Dining Plan because the Disney Gift Cards are paid for ahead of time and have to be used for something at Disney. They make great gifts throughout the year. I like to grab one occasionally when I grocery shop. It doesn't add a lot to my total but they really do add up over the year. 

    I have my fingers crossed that the Disney Dining Plan will return to us soon. If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach back out to me. I'm happy to help. 

    Happy holidays!
    Jackie H.

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
