    Our last trip to Disney we had the Magic Bands and the quick service dinning plan and it worked out great. We would like to plan another trip. When will quick service be back? and will the magic bands sill be available?

    Greetings, Debbie!

    Welcome to planDisney! I am delighted to hear that you are planning a return trip to Walt Disney World Resort. While some things may be a little different than your last visit, there are so many new and exciting experiences to discover! You chose an amazing time for you and your Ohana to head back to The Most Magical Place on Earth. Traditional Character Greetings have recently returned to the parks and there are new nighttime spectaculars that are sure to delight. Add new attractions including Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and Remy's Ratatouille Adventure, and there is sure to be incredible for everyone in your travel party to enjoy during your upcoming adventure. 

    While there is not an official date for the return of Disney Dining Plans, we do know that they will make their way back to the magic in some form. I recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for announcements regarding the return of this beloved plan, as well as the latest Disney Parks news. Here's a planDisney favorite pro tip for creating a dining budget. It's no secret that Guests love the Disney Dining Plan. I am a huge fan of it myself. I love the convenience of knowing the cost of meals is already planned out and paid for before my family arrives. You can create a "prepaid meal budget" by looking through the menus of your favorite Quick Service spots with your family. You can add up the cost of the meals you think you may order, and put that amount on a Disney Gift Card to take along on your travels. This will create a budget in advance, and help spending costs stay where you would like by relying on the gift card. There is still some time before your return to the magic, and I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for good news before you arrive.

    Okay, on to MagicBands! These magical accessories are another one of my favorite Disney vacation options. The convenience of accessing my Walt Disney World Resort hotel room, theme park tickets, and making purchases with the tap of my wrist is a huge time saver! I love not having to dig tickets or credit cards out of a theme park bag on the go. There are no plans for Magic Bands to go anywhere anytime soon. In fact, MagicBand+ will be making its debut very soon. This is another fantastic new extra to get excited about before you arrive! MagicBand+ offers the same great benefits as MagicBand and offers all-new features like virtual bounty hunting in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge and can even interact with nighttime spectaculars! 

    I hope that your upcoming adventure is memorable and magical!
    We'll see ya real soon!
