    Do you know if any meal plan will come back? My family and I have a trip to WALT DISNEY WORLD (march 5-14, 2021) i x Would like to know dining updates specially meal plans and any other updates I should know about!! Thanks Cristy

    Hi Cristy,

    As Pocahontas would say, your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth is "Just around the riverbend!" I hope you're counting down the days until all of the magic and fun begin, as your trip will be here before you know it!

    There's always something new at Walt Disney World Resort, and I'd definitely encourage you to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for announcements and updates. For example, they recently released photos of some of EPCOT's new look here and here. So beautiful! For your trip, I'd especially watch for news about the upcoming Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. There should be a foodie guide released sometime soon that will surely make your mouth water with all of the tasty bites and beverages you'll be able to enjoy during your visit! Of course, following Disney Parks on social media is another great way to be among the first to know anytime there's magical news about Resort happenings. 

    Regarding dining and Disney Dining Plans specifically, there haven't been any recent updates about their return. At this point, Disney Dining Plans are still not available for purchase or use. While we're all wishing on a star they'll return soon, I'd recommend using Disney Gift Cards if you'd like to take more of a prepaid approach to your dining. Not only can they be saved to your account, making mobile ordering a breeze, but it's easy peasy to check their balance at any point during your visit. And as for what's new regarding dining in general, this Know Before You Go page is super helpful!

    If this is your first visit since the parks reopened, you'll find that yes, some things are different now. I'm happy to share that the magic is definitely still alive, though, and waiting for you! One of the new things I absolutely love are all of the cavalcades, flotillas, and creative ways the Imagineers have found to help us safely interact with our Disney friends. I think you're going to love them, too!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at planDisney, Cristy, and please come back and see us again anytime you have a Disney-planning question! We're always here and happy to help. I hope you have a truly magical...and delicious...vacation this spring!
