    Hi there, Is there any info on when the dining plan might return?

    Hi Courtney ! Welcome to planDisney, I am so glad you found us to ask your vacation planning question.  

    The Disney Dining Plan is currently unavailable, much to the dismay of many guests like yourself. With some dining locations still closed, and limited character dining, I can understand why Disney is hesitant to bring it back. 

    While there is no official date of when it might be returning, rest assured that should the dining plan return before your trip, you can absolutely add it onto your package. You will do this by calling in, the list of phone numbers can be found here. You can see the most up to date information on the Dining: Know Before You Go page online. 

    When making your dining reservations at 60 days before your trip, I highly recommend Olivia's Café at Disney’s Old Key West Resort for ANY meal of the day! I have never been disappointed with my food here. Another of my new favorites at Magic Kingdom is Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen. I absolutely love all of the appetizers here, and make a meal of 2-3 of them. 

    Since reopening last summer, WDW has utilized mobile ordering for quick service locations on the MyDisneyExperience mobile app. This is life-changing! I have absolutely loved this tool. I have been able to order my Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich from Sleepy Hollow while in line for Space Mountain. I have also been able to order my family’s entire lunch at 9am, to pick up at 12:30pm. It is seriously THE BEST. The first time you use it might feel a bit goofy, but I assure you, you will get the hang of it. One of my most common mistakes is not realizing that things come with a side that I can choose. 

    Please come back to planDisney with more questions that come up while you are planning your trip to the most magical place on Earth! 

    Happy Planning (& eating),
