    If I make reservations for lodging and parks for later this year and you reinstate the dining plan, can I add it later?

    Howdy Eric!

    Welcome to planDisney, a group of the rootinest tootinest Disney vacation enthusiasts you will ever meet this side of Walt Disney World! I am so glad that you brought your question here, and it would be my pleasure to help.

    The Disney Dining Plan is a favorite of mine when vacationing in Walt Disney World. I love being able to budget for our dining in the incredible restaurants found throughout the theme parks and resorts ahead of time. As of right now, there is no word on if and when it will return, but I am hopeful that we will see the Disney Dining Plan return as more restaurants in Walt Disney World reopen and capacity increases. Check out the Dining: Know Before You Go page for the latest, most up-to-date information about dining in Walt Disney World. 

    I am pleased to inform you that you can book your vacation package for a Disney Resort hotel and theme park tickets now, and if the Disney Dining Plan becomes available before your visit, you can add it to your vacation package! To start budgeting for your meals in Walt Disney World now, I recommend grabbing Disney Gift Cards. You can later use the Disney Gift Cards to pay for meals while you are on your vacation, or you can use the Disney Gift Cards to pay for the Disney Dining Plan to be added to your vacation package if it returns.

    I hope this information helps you to book your next visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth! Remember, a dream is a wish your heart makes, so I’ll be dreaming of the Disney Dining Plan’s return. You’ve got a friend in us here at planDisney, so stop back by any time we can help answer your vacation questions.
