    I am planning a vacation to disney world. They used to offer a meal plan option, I was wondering if that was still available?

    Hello there, Julie. Thanks for visiting us here at planDisney with your question. I am thrilled that you are planning a trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth. You are going to have a great time! 

    Julie, the Disney Dining Plan is such a fan favorite. I know my family and I have used the program on numerous Walt Disney World vacations and have always enjoyed it. It was really nice having every aspect of the vacation paid for ahead of time, it really took the pressure off. 

    As of right now, the Disney Dining Plan is still currently suspended. It has not yet come back to us since the shut down of Walt Disney World last year. The good news is that we do have confirmation that the Disney Dining Plan is indeed coming back. The bad news, we just don't have a timeframe yet. A few months ago the Disney Parks Blog released an article letting us know that they've heard the outcry of support and love for the Disney Dining Plan and that it will eventually be returning but they weren't ready to give a release date at that time. It's just my opinion but I think we can expect the Disney Dining Plan to return after the start of the new year. There have been a lot of reopenings of restaurants around Walt Disney World property lately and it really does feel like most things are returning to normal. If you go ahead and book your Walt Disney World vacation package now and the Disney Dining Plan is released before you go, you will most certainly be able to add it on to your existing reservation. If it looks anything like it did before, Guests had up to 48 hours prior to their check-in date to add on the Disney Dining Plan if they wanted. I would think it will look very similar to this in the future. 

    I'm sorry I don't have more information for you at this time, Julie. Be sure to keep an eye out over on the Disney Parks Blog for any announcements that may be made about the Disney Dining Plan or you can always stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help! Have fun and happy planning.

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
