    My husband and I are both diabetics. We were wondering if we purchased a dining plan would restaurants allow us to order an appetizer instead of a dessert?

    Howdy Lisa!

    Welcome to planDisney!  I love to chat about all the dining experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort!  Thank you for sharing your question with us!

    Oh boy!  When I get a “Rumbly in my Tumbly” while visiting the Walt Disney World Resort, I love to enjoy all the yummy food options “Just Around the Riverbend!”  My family and I are huge Disney Dining Plan fans!  At this time, all of the Disney Dining Plans have been placed on pause, and we do not know when they will resume.  I recommend checking the Disney Parks Blog regularly to see when this fantastic feature resumes.  I love all the dining experiences my family and I have enjoyed through the years on the different Disney Dining Plans!  Since many guests struggle with dietary restrictions, the Walt Disney World Resort does an amazing job accommodating all guests with dietary restrictions.  If the Disney Dining Plans have returned by the time you are ready to take off to Neverland, make sure to ask the Cast Members at each dining location if they will be able to make any substitutions for you due to health restrictions.  On one of our visits in years past, my husband was on a no sugar diet, and the Cast Members at some of the restaurants were able to offer him no-sugar options that worked “Practically Perfect!” 

    I love to visit the Walt Disney World Resort in the spring!  There will be tons of fun things blooming this spring!  I am most excited about the Walt Disney World Resorts 50th-anniversary celebration that begins October 1, 2021, and will continue for 18-months!  You will be arriving in time to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime celebration!  Several announcements have been made about this celebration that will bring EARidescent excitement throughout the Walt Disney World Resort!  I know you are looking forward to enjoying all the festivities!  To stay informed of everything as announcements continue to be made, go to “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” and “Sign Up!”

    As you continue to plan your unforgettable vacation, if you have any more planning questions, please come back to planDisney!  We always look forward to hEARing from you again, Lisa!

    See Ya Real Soon,
