    i need to know if the disney dining plan is available for my visit on 8/31 until 9/5

    Hey there, William. I'm so thrilled to see a fellow North Carolinian here at planDisney. Welcome! 

    William, the Disney Dining Plan is a fan favorite! Everyone is wondering when it will return to us. The good news is that last week the Disney Parks Blog did announce that they will most definitely be bringing back the Disney Dining Plan. The bad news - they just aren't sure when yet. While I don't know this for sure, I don't think it will be back in time for your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. Disney likes to give ample notice about things like that and I would be surprised if it came back that quickly after their last announcement. I certainly would not count on it, William. If it does return before your trip, however, I am certain you would be able to add it on to your existing vacation package. Previously, Guests had up to 48 hours prior to arrival to add the Disney Dining Plan to vacation packages and I am sure that it will look similar in the future. 

    If you'd like to prepay for food and beverages while you are on vacation at Walt Disney World, you could always pick up some Disney Gift Cards to use instead. I feel like this is similar to the Disney Dining Plan because the money is already set aside and has to be used for something at Walt Disney World. You can find Disney Gift Cards at most major retail locations. If you do this, you can use Disney Gift Cards pretty much anywhere on Walt Disney World property. I've used mine for merchandise, snacks, and at restaurants. 

    William, I'm sorry if you were looking forward to using the Disney Dining Plan on your next vacation. Hopefully, as we return to a world of magic we will see it return soon. If you have any other questions before your trip, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help! 

    Have a great day!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
