    Do you know when or if the meal plans will be coming back?

    Hi Sidney and thank you for visiting planDisney!

    I am also awaiting news on if the Disney Dining Plan will return.  I loved essentially pre-paying for our meals and snacks for our Walt Disney World vacations and for us, it was a great deal because we always made the most of our dining credits.  It made snacking around the parks so easy and my kids loved to "pay" for their own snacks with their MagicBands.  My favorite snack to get on the Disney Dining Plan was a Dole Whip Float at Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom Park.  Delicious!

    No announcements have been made on if the Disney Dining Plan will or will not return, but I have seen some hints that maybe it will be coming back in the future.  The menu boards at all of the parks still have the snack credit icons next to would-be eligible snacks and the Disney Dining Plan pages are still live on the Walt Disney World website.  Could this mean nothing?  Absolutely, but I have my fingers crossed that it's a good sign.  

    The best place to look for upcoming news and announcements is the Disney Parks Blog.  I see you'll be visiting in October, so the blog will also be the first place to announce the 2023 dates for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.  This special event at Magic Kingdom Park is so much fun for families visiting during spooky season!  My kids love to trick-or-treat around the park and visit with some of their favorite characters in Halloween costumes.  I love all of the special shows, especially Mickey's Boo-To-You Halloween Parade.  The Haunted Mansion grave diggers and ballroom dancers are the best part!

    Please stop back by if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
