    Hi. We are supposed to be going on September 7-12 & staying at AKL Villas - Jambo House. They took away our dining plan from our package. The 60 dining reservations would be July 9, thats before Disney opens. Will we still be able to get a dining plan?

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Stefani!

    Oh, wow, you must be thrilled about your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World! Add that you are staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge--such a beautiful and unique resort--and your stay will be absolutely magical!

    For our upcoming visit, we're planning on making new Advanced Dining Reservations as soon as that window opens, but at this time, Disney Dining Plans are not available. Walt Disney World is adhering to guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and government agencies regarding physical distancing and enhanced cleanliness, so the option of adding a Disney Dining Plan needs to remain on hold at this time. Check out this helpful post Dining: Know Before You Go for more information, including which dining locations are open, booking windows, and the incorporation of enhanced technology in your dining experience.

    Of course, be sure to download the super-handy My Disney Experience mobile app so that you can manage all of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation plans right from the palm of your hand. It's the best way to manage the magic while touring the parks and resorts.

    Be sure to send us additional questions as you plan your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth, Stefani. We love to help!
