    Any plans on the Disney Dining Plan returning this year<

    Hello, Donald. Welcome to planDisney. 

    The Disney Dining Plans are so wildly popular and the million-dollar question right now is when are they going to return. Unfortunately, Donald, I don't have any updated information about when we might see the Disney Dining Plan come back only that they will eventually return. I know my family and I have enjoyed using the Disney Dining Plan on a number of vacations in the past. It was really nice having everything paid for ahead of time. It really took the pressure off when it comes to looking at prices and allowed us all to enjoy even that much more. In my opinion, I don't think it will be too much longer before we see the Disney Dining Plan back once again. We are returning to a world of magic more and more every day. A lot of restaurants that have been previously closed are starting to open back up and I think we will see even more of that in the coming months. If the Disney Dining Plan does return before your next Walt Disney World vacation and you have already booked your package, I am certain you'll be able to add it on. Previously, Guests have had up to 48 hours prior to their check-in date to add the Disney Dining Plan on and I think it will be similar to this in the future. 

    Until then Donald, I've actually been collecting Disney Gift Cards to use on food and beverages during my Walt Disney World vacations. Using Disney Gift Cards is similar to the Disney Dining Plan in the sense that it's paid for ahead of time and has to be used for something at Walt Disney World. I like to pick up a small dollar amount gift card when I am at the grocery store. It doesn't add a lot to my bill but I am always amazed at how quickly they add up.

    I'm sorry I don't have more information for you at this time. Please feel free to stop back by and ask me for an update or keep an eye out over on the Disney Parks Blog for more information. When more information is released, that's where we will be able to find out all of the details.

    Have a great day!

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
