    Planning a trip in December 2021 do y’all know when the dining plans may be reinstated??

    Hi Erin,

    Perhaps one of my favorite aspects of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is the food. From Mickey-shaped deliciousness to seasonal treats to tasty traditions I've been enjoying for years, just thinking about Disney food makes my mouth water!

    While there has not been any news about the return of the Disney Dining Plans yet, I'm sure there will be squeals of joy from all sorts of Disney fans when we hear more about them. I'd encourage you to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog and Disney's official social media accounts for updates or announcements. In the meantime, one idea for prepaying for your meals and snacks is to purchase Disney Gift Cards in the amount that you would have spent on a Disney Dining Plan. I know it's not exactly the same as using an entitlement, but they're easy to manage and track, and can even be used within the My Disney Experience app to mobile order something scrumptious!

    I see that you're planning to visit over the holidays and I would be remiss if I didn't ask...did you see the Disney Parks Blog article highlighting some of the festive experiences coming to The Most Magical Place on Earth this holiday season? SO exciting! They also shared some #HalfwaytotheHolidays stories and ideas to get you in the perfect mood for your visit later this year! 

    Thanks so much for stopping by planDisney, Erin! I hope you have a truly magical vacation this holiday season!
