    Is there not a meal plan?

    Hey there, Erick! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. 

    Since the reopening of Walt Disney World last year, the Disney Dining Plan has not yet returned to us. There has not been an announcement made as to if or when the Disney Dining Plan may return. It's my personal opinion that we probably won't see it back this year because a lot of restaurants around Walt Disney World are still not open. When that announcement is made, we will be able to find out all of the details over on the Disney Parks Blog. If the Disney Dining Plan returns before your vacation next year, you will be able to add it on to your existing Walt Disney World vacation package. If the Disney Dining Plan looks similar to what it did before, you will be able to add it on to your reservation up to 48 hours prior to your trip. 

    Until the Disney Dining Plan returns, I suggest picking up Disney Gift Cards between now and your vacation. This is similar to the Disney Dining Plan in the sense that the money is already taken from your bank account and has to be used toward something on your vacation. Having Disney Gift Cards makes it easier to get that splurgy meal or cocktail without a second thought because you have to use it for something on vacation. I like to pick up Disney Gift Cards when I do my weekly grocery shopping. Picking up even a small dollar amount gift card every week can really add up, especially since your trip is next spring. You can have a nice little stash tucked away by then. Once you have all of your gift cards, you can actually go to the website and combine them so it is not so much to keep track of. You can have a maximum balance of $1000.00 on each card. Disney Gift Cards are also a nice gift from friends and family. It seems like, especially around the holidays, people are always looking for gift ideas and I always suggest Disney Gift Cards for my crew. 

    Erick, I'm sorry I don't have more news for you about the Disney Dining Plan at this time. If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back and ask me. I'm here to help.

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
