    Any hope of the dining plan returning to Disney. We absolutely loved it the last time we went to Disney! We plan to visit late 2024.

    Hi Jillian and welcome to planDisney!

    Dining at Disney is one of my favorite things to do on a Walt Disney World vacation!  I'm already thinking of the yummy sweets and treats that I want to try on my next visit and where we will be dining.  I cannot wait for Roundup Rodeo BBQ to open at Disney's Hollywood Studios later this month.  I already have our reservations secured and am ready to try this new place out.

    I am also waiting for some good news, or really any news, about the Disney Dining Plan returning!  I was a huge fan and loved being able to basically pre-pay for all of our meals and snacks for our Walt Disney World vacations.  We just showed up, picked what we wanted from the menu and that was it!  I do have hope that it will return at some point, but we haven't been given any information about it.  My husband just said to me yesterday at Magic Kingdom Park that the Disney Dining Plan snack icon is still showing on all of the quick service restaurant menus around the parks, so that has to be a good sign, right?  I really would have loved to use a snack credit for my son's brownie sundae at Auntie Gravity's Galactic Goodies.  I also think a good sign for it returning is the fact that they haven't removed the information from the Walt Disney World website either.  These are just my observations, but my fingers are crossed!  

    The best place to get Disney Parks news, especially announcements for upcoming magic, is on the Disney Parks Blog.  They are sure to be the first to announce any information about the Disney Dining Plan coming back in the future.

    Please stop back by and visit if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
