    do i need to purchase a dining plan for my disney trip?

    Hello, Melia and welcome to planDisney where we love to talk about dining around the Walt Disney World Resort almost as much as chef Remy loves to cook! 

    Now, first it's important to note that Disney Dining Plans are NOT currently available for purchase. As the Walt Disney World Resort is operating in state of phased reopening to focus on enhanced health & safety measures, dining plans are on pause. However, should they be reinstated prior to your visit you do not need to purchase a Disney Dining Plan to enjoy eating and drinking in the theme parks or the Disney Resorts Collection hotels. You are welcome to pay "a la carte" for any dining experiences you wish to enjoy including those Table-Service restaurants that accept advanced reservations

    Melia, I hope this helps as you are gathering all the ingredients for a delicious vacation. If we see the reinstatement of Disney Dining Plans prior to your trip and you're considering if this is a good fit for your family, I hope you'll come on back to planDisney with any additional questions.

    Thanks for dropping by,
