    I would like to know that if book my vacation and the Disney Dining plan returns prior to my trip will I be able to add it to my trip?

    Hi Jesse! Welcome back to planDisney.

    My family just returned from a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and we all agreed that eating might be our favorite thing about visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth. Adding a Disney Dining Plan to our vacation gives us so many opportunities to snack, drink, and eat throughout Walt Disney World! Of course, we were thrilled when the Disney Parks Blog announced that dining plans will be making their return and, like you, are waiting for our moment!

    We're still waiting for all the details about when Disney Dining Plans will return, what will be included, and how they will work, so stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for that information. In the past, I've been able to modify existing Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservations to add Disney Dining Plans, so I'm hoping things will work just the same when they return. Unfortunately, we just don't know for sure at this point. My bet is that the announcement about all the details will include information on how to add Disney Dining Plans.

    In the meantime, I would recommend making your Disney Resorts Collection hotel reservation or Vacation Package reservation while you wait for more information on Disney Dining Plans. If dining plans aren't back by the time of your visit, you could consider putting your budgeted amount for dining on Disney Gift Cards and using those to pay your room folio. On my recent visit, I stopped at our resort hotel's front desk to swipe several gift cards and pay down my room charges the day before my check-out, and it was quick and easy.

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney, Jesse! I'm sending DOLE Whip-flavored pixie dust that we get an announcement about Disney Dining Plans soon and you can get your plans in place. In the meantime, we are here to help if you think of any further questions as you plan and dream.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
