    When can we start making dining reservations for a stay that starts 10/06/2021? Also can we purchase a dining plan with our package?

    Hey there, Peggy! Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney where we love to eat more than Princess Tiana loves to bake beignets! 

    Peggy, I appreciate that you're planning ahead for your October vacation, so let's talk about dining around the Walt Disney World Resort. You will be able to make reservations 60 days in advance of your check-in (for the length of your stay, up to 10 days). You'll want to make sure you have your coffee brewing and your alarm set as reservations do open up quite early in the morning (approximately 5:45 AM, EST).

    Currently the Disney Dining Plan remains on pause as the Walt Disney World Resort continues to focus on enhanced health and safety measures. While we don't have any information yet regarding when or if this option might return, keep a close watch on the Disney Parks Blog as you'll find announcements pop up there first. Peggy, should a version of the Disney Dining Plan return prior to your trip you would be welcome to add that on at a later date. 

    Now, Peggy, as you're circling August 7th on your calendar, I hope you'll come on back to planDisney if you need any restaurant recommendations or have any additional questions. Since you'll be visiting only days after the 50th anniversary celebrations kick off, you're in for a Magical trip that's been 50 years in the making. 

    Wishing you a trip that has you savoring every moment like a fine gumbo.
