    Hi! My mother and I are planning a trip in 2022 for us and my daughter. We normally use the Dining plans when they are available. We would love to know if we purchase our vacation package without the dining plan, can we add it later if it becomes available

    Howdy Andrea!

    Welcome to planDisney!  I love to chat about dining at the Walt Disney World Resort!  Thank you for sharing your question with us!

    My family and I have always been big fans of all the Disney Dining Plans!  Since this feature has been placed on pause, I have great news for you!  If you decide to purchase a Walt Disney World Resort vacation package and the Disney Dining Plans resume for guests to enjoy, you can ask a Cast Member to add this feature to your vacation!  You will need to call the Walt Disney World Resort, and a Cast Member will be able to assist in adding this yummy option to your vacation package.  

    Since the Walt Disney World Resort is celebrating 50 years of “Making Dreams Come True,” there are many additions to the menus throughout all the dining experiences!  We were able to enjoy the “Cheers to 50 years” dessert at The Plaza Restaurant!  This dessert was large enough for our table to share!  During our visit to Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Café, we found the 50th Celebration Minnie Premium Sipper and enjoyed a 1971 Meal which included the 50th Anniversary Themed Cake Pop!  Take a moment to scan through all the menus to choose a few of your must-do dining options to celebrate “The World’s Most Magical Celebration!”

    Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog to see when the Disney Dining Plans are scheduled to return!  The Disney Parks Blog has been announcing exciting things on the horizon almost daily!  The Disney Parks Blog is the best place to learn about everything to see and do during your visit!

    As you continue to plan your visit for next year, if you have any more questions, please come back to planDisney!  We look forward to hEARing from you again, Andrea!

    See Ya Real Soon,
