    We are DVC members and have reservations for December. We are so excited to be in Disney for Christmas. Unfortunately last year we were cancelled due to Covid-19. We always purchase the premium food plan. Is there any chance it will be back by December?

    "Welcome home" Paula, and thanks for bringing your question to planDisney! 

    Paula, while we're still over half a year away, I never miss an opportunity to say "Merry Christmas" and I hope that spending the Most Wonderful Time of the Year at the Most Magical Place on Earth will be nothing short of a fairytale. 

    Paula, as the Walt Disney World Resort continues to operate in a state of phased reopening, there are a few old favorites that haven't yet made a return, including the Disney Dining Plan. My family and I loved using this option and the comfort of having all of our meals prepaid and preplanned! Paula, as a Mom I also loved the indulgence of saying yes to snacks, like Mickey premium bars, every day of vacation. 

    While I wish I could give you a definite answer, at this time we don't have any news indicating if or when the Disney Dining Plan might return. All we are left to do is to channel our inner Cinderella and keep dreaming of the days when an announcement is made. Make sure to bookmark the Disney Parks Blog as the Fairy Godmother will post news there with a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo. 

    Paul, I'll be wishing on a star for you that we see the return of the Disney Dining Plan before your December vacation. In the meantime, if you have any other questions, please come on back to planDisney. We are all EARS!
