    I’m planning a wdw vacation for 2022 and was wondering if dining plans are returning?

    Hi Karina, 

    Welcome back to planDisney and thank you for sending us another question.  I am happy to see you are planning another visit to Walt Disney World Resort, there are so many new and exciting experiences available for your entire family!

    My family and I love the Disney Dining Plan and are anxiously awaiting it's return.  Currently there is no date for when the Disney Dining Plans will be available for guests to add on to their Walt Disney World Resort Vacation Package.  However, after speaking with a Cast Member to confirm, if the Disney Dining Plan becomes available guests will be able to modify their existing reservations to include your preferred Disney Dining Plan.  I would recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog or the official Walt Disney World Resort Website for the most up to date information regarding the phased re-opening of Walt Disney World Resort.  

    While there is no Disney Dining Plan, guests are still able to make Advanced Dining Reservations for Table-Service Dining Locations up to 60 days in advance.  I would highly recommend making your reservations as soon as possible, as most Dining Locations are popular and tend to fill up quickly.  

    It looks like it's been a while since your last visit, and there are so many new and exciting experiences for you to enjoy during your visit.  Since we are talking about dining, I would highly recommend using Mobile Ordering for your Quick-Service dining options.  Using the My Disney Experience Mobile App, at select Dining Locations, guests are able to pre-order and pay for their food and beverages while waiting in line for another attraction or even walking through the Theme Park.  Once you arrive at the Restaurant, simply click the "I'm Here, Prepare My Order" button and the kitchen will prepare your order.  My family and I love this option, it has saved us so much time during our Walt Disney World Resort Vacations.  

    I hope you have a magical visit at Walt Disney World Resort, Karina.  Please let us know if you have any other questions as your vacation approaches, we are always happy to help.
