    Do you know if the Disney meal plan is going to return now that Covid restrictions are lifted?

    Hi there, Leigh-Anne! Welcome back to planDisney! I'm so glad that you've stopped by with your vacation planning question!

    Before you know it, you'll be arriving at The Most Magical Place on Earth, ready to begin your magical adventure! How exciting! Let's be honest - half the fun of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is the FOOD. I love booking all of my old favorites and new dining experiences and planning out all the snacks and sweet treats I want to try. As a foodie, I loved the all-inclusive feel of the Disney Dining Plan. Being able to arrive at Walt Disney World Resort, enjoy all of the yumminess I could ever want and not have to worry about a budget was just ... magical!

    While there have been no announcements on the return of the Disney Dining Plan yet, the website states that it is "temporarily unavailable." Therefore, I am very hopeful and have been wishing upon every star that it returns soon! I'd suggest keeping an eye on the Disney Dining Plan webpage and the Disney Parks Blog to get the news on the return of the Dining Plan as soon as it drops.

    In the meantime, before the Dining Plan returns, I suggest using Disney Gift Cards to budget for all of your meals and snacks in advance. Then, once you're in the middle of the magic, you don't have to worry about a food budget and can snack to your heart's content!

    Leigh-Anne, I hope this was helpful, and I hope you have an unforgettable upcoming spring vacation full of snacks, treats, fun and pixie dust! Please stop by any time with any vacation planning questions you may have. You've got a friend in me!

    I hope to see ya real soon,
