    Is there a meal plan anymore?

    Welcome to planDisney, Sommer! I'm so glad to be able to answer your question about my favorite part of a trip to Walt Disney World Resort: the food. We're a major foodie family and while we definitely love riding attractions and taking in the entertainment, our primary goal at The Most Magical Place On Earth is to enjoy some really fun snacks and some world-class dining. One of the ways we have been able to do this is by taking advantage of the Disney Dining Plan, so let's chat about when it's coming back and how you can add it to your vacation package!

    Sommer, I'm so pleased to tell you that the Disney Dining Plan will be returning in January 2024. You can add a Dining Plan to vacation packages that include a Disney Resort hotel stay with arrivals on or after January 9, 2024, so if your trip is after that date, you are eligible! There are two Dining Plans available: the Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan and the Disney Dining Plan, so you can choose whichever style of dining works best for you and your family. I really love the Disney Dining Plan, which includes a Table-Service credit so you can sit down to a great meal every day of your trip. 

    If you have a vacation package booked already that includes tickets and a stay at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel on or after January 9, 2024, you can call Disney Resort Hotel Reservations to add the Disney Dining Plan to your vacation. If you haven't booked your trip yet and you're planning on visiting next year, you can add a Disney Dining Plan at the time of booking! 

    I hope this answers your question, Sommer, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
