    any rumors or rumblings about the return of dining plans?

    Hi Randy,

    Welcome to planDisney! I'm excited to hear you have a visit planned for this December, right in the heart of all of the holiday celebrations happening all around The Most Magical Place on Earth! Between the gorgeous decorations, festive music, fun special events, and tasty seasonal treats, December is one of my favorite times of year to visit!

    You'll be excited to hear that yes, there have been some rumblings around the return of the Disney Dining Plans! There was an article recently released by the Disney Parks Blog that stated they will be returning at some point. While no details were given, it was encouraging to hear that they're at least on Disney's radar screen! I'd encourage you to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog or Disney's official social media channels for further announcements and updates, and I'm wishing on a star that they'll return in time for your upcoming vacation! In the meantime, I'd recommend purchasing Disney Gift Cards in the amount that you would plan to spend on a Disney Dining Plan and using those for all of your dining needs. While it's not the same as being able to use an entitlement, it's wonderful knowing that all of your meals and snacks are prepaid and it's easy peasy to check your current Disney Gift Card balances online.

    Thanks so much for bringing your question to us here at planDisney, Randy, and please feel free to stop by again any time you have a Disney-planning question or would like advice about any aspect of your trip. I hope you have a truly magical...and delicious...vacation!
