    Is there an estimated time when meal plans will return? We do not want to schedule a trip without one.

    Hi there, Steven! Thanks for being our Guest here at planDisney!

    I understand not wanting to book your vacation without the Disney Dining Plan. Knowing all our meals and snacks are paid for in advance helps me relax during our Walt Disney World Resort vacations. I can also make my meal selections based on what I am hungry for instead of thinking I am spending too much - sometimes, you need a nice juicy steak! 

    Currently, there has not been an announcement on when our beloved Disney Dining Plan will be returning. Stay tuned to the Disney Park Blog for up to date Disney Parks news and updates. 

    In the meantime, you can book your Walt Disney World Resort Vacation Package and add the Disney Dining Plan at a later date if it returns in time for your trip. If it does not return, I have been purchasing Disney Gift Cards in the amount I estimate I will spend and use those as my own dining plan. I usually over-estimate, so I use those funds for some fun souvenirs at the end of my trip! Or, you could be more practical than me and save the leftover funds for your next trip. 

    Have a magical day, Steven!

Hi, I’m Rachel! I am a “boy mom” to two rowdy little men at home and married to my high school sweetheart. I am fortunate enough that my prince charming loves all things Disney just as much as I do! For me, planning a trip to Walt Disney World can be just as magical as being there. It brings our family together as we dream, plan, and count down the days. I would be honored to help plan your visit and share in your family’s very own magic! Learn More About Rachel
