    Is free dining likely to be added in 2021? Or too early to tell with the coronavirus?

    Hi Julie!

    Welcome to planDisney!

    I completely understand how the Disney Dining Plan (whether as a free promotion, or as a purchased extra), has become a natural part of our vacation planning.  Safety is the utmost priority at Walt Disney World Resort, with all the theme parks, Disney Resort hotels and restaurants operating at limited capacity, and suspending the Disney Dining Plan has become necessary due to the current climate. 

    We don't know if all these enhancements to our vacations will return this year, or during 2021, as we are still in an evolving situation and updates are happening all the time.  I recommend keeping your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the official news (not just for news about Disney Dining Plans, but for all the latest announcements). 

    During the phased re-opening of Walt Disney World Resort, we may need a little more considered and careful planning, but our holidays can still be a magical experience.  Please read this information about Returning to a World of Magic, and Dining: Know Before You Go.

    Please know we are working to be able to answer your questions as quickly as possible, and we look forward to providing an update as soon as we have more information to share.  Come back and ask as many questions as you like!  We are always happy to help you plan your holiday.
