    I am planning a trip for Sept this year with my husband and our 1 year old And the grandparents. We’ve been planning this trip for 3 years now and originally had dining plans on our pkgs. Is the dining plan going to be back for food and wine this year?

    Hi Kylie,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for your question!

    I love coming to the Walt Disney World Resort in the fall. The weather is just starting to cool off and the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival will be in full swing!

    At this time, all Disney Dining Plan options are temporarily unavailable. I know this isn’t the most exciting news since you had plans for it in the past. In lieu of the dining plan, you can however purchase a Disney Gift Card to travel with you as you venture through the World Showcase! You can grab a wristlet gift card while in EPCOT, so all you need to do is scan it at one of the food booths and be on your way. If you’d rather have a digital gift card or you’d like one sent by mail, you can also purchase them online. This could be a great way to have a similar experience as the dining plan because it’s like paying for your food in advance.

    As your vacation approaches, definitely stay connected to the Walt Disney World Resort website and Disney Parks Blog. These are the best places to get the latest and greatest news and new updates!

    I hope this “Bit By Bryanna” is helpful as you prepare for your long-awaited family vacation. If you have any other planning or vacation questions, please feel free to reach out, I’m always happy to help!
