    Do you know when the Disney dining plan will return

    Hey there, Patrice, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by the planDisney panel with your question! 

    Patrice, unfortunately, the Dining Plans at Walt Disney World Resort are temporarily unavailable. And I am unsure when this popular offering will make its long-awaited return. Since Disney Dining is my favorite part of every Disney Vacation, I’m patiently - I use that term loosely - awaiting the Dining Plan return right along with you! Luckily, there are still some creative options available to fully enjoy the dining options throughout the resort during your visit. 

    Disney Gift Cards are a great option for planning and managing your overall vacation spending. You could even use Disney Gift Cards as your own “dining plan” by setting aside funds before your vacation to cover the costs of your planned meals. Disney Gift Cards are also a great way for your family and friends to get involved in the Disney Vacation planning (and paying) process! We ask our family and friends to gift our kids Disney Gift Cards in place of presents for birthdays and other celebrations. This way, the kids have the chance to buy their own snacks and merchandise during vacation, and our house has fewer toys to pick up! By planning out the spending ahead of time, you’re able to enjoy your vacation guilt-free! Sounds like a win to me!

    I hope this helps, Patrice! If you have more questions while planning your Disney Vacation, stop back by and let me know

    You’ve got a friend in me,
