    Any progress on the dining plan return date? Will it be available for January 2023?

    Hi Heidi! Welcome back to planDisney!

    Your trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth is just a few days away! Can you believe that after all the planning and counting down the fun is almost here? You and your family must be jumping out of your seats with excitement.  If you haven't been to Walt Disney World Resort in a little while make sure to spend some time checking out the latest and greatest updates to the Parks - especially Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind! This new attraction is my favorite by FAR and I can't wait to get back down to ride it again (and again, and again!). 

    While I know many Guests like you are looking for some guidance on the return of the Disney Dining Plan, we just don't have a definitive update to give at the moment.  Because we're Guests too, just like you, many of the panelists here at planDisney are also looking forward to the return of this program! While I may not be as much of a "foodie" as some of my friends, I still definitely enjoyed having the ability to pre-pay for my meals and snacks throughout my vacation.

    While we anxiously await news of the future of the Disney Dining Plan, I would suggest purchasing Disney Gift Cards before you head out on your trip and using them in place of cash or a credit card during your meals.  While it's not exactly the same, it does offer you a way to budget and pre-pay for your meals just like the Dining Plan! Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for any breaking news about the return of the Disney Dining Plan!

Meet the Panelist: Ashley, Massachusetts

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
