    Do you know when the dining plans will be back?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Belinda. Thanks for stopping by with your question. 

    The Disney Dining Plan is such a fan favorite. I know my family and I have used the program many times and have always enjoyed it. Unfortunately, at this time we don't have any information about when the Disney Dining Plan will return. Several months back, the Disney Park Blog released an article reassuring fans that they've heard the outcry of love and support for the Disney Dining Plan and at some point, it will return. At that time, they just weren't sure as to when. That's the last official update that we've had, Belinda. I've been keeping my fingers crossed and my eyes peeled over on the Disney Parks Blog anticipating another update. 

    If you've already booked your Walt Disney World vacation and the Disney Dining Plan is offered again during your travel dates, I am confident you'll be able to add it on to your existing vacation package. Previously, Guests were able to add it up to 48 hours prior to their check-in day. I am certain it will look similar to this again. 

    Until the Disney Dining Plan comes back, I've been stocking up on Disney Gift Cards to use in place of the program. It's similar to the Disney Dining Plan in the sense that it is paid for ahead of time and has to be used for something at Walt Disney World. You can get Disney Gift Cards at most major retail locations or online. If the Disney Dining Plan does return, you can always use your Disney Gift Cards to pay for the balance of your vacation. It's a win-win! 

    I know you were hoping for a more definitive date for the return of the Disney Dining Plan, right now though it is just a waiting game. If you have any other questions, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help. 

    Have a great week.

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
