    Does Walt Disney World still have the dinning plan?

    Hey there, Cheryl, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by the panel with your question. You’ve asked a question about my favorite Walt Disney World Resort attraction: Disney Dining! I take vacation dining very seriously, so it’s fantastic to have you here planning the best ways to fill your belly across the resort. 

    Unfortunately, the Disney Dining Plans are still unavailable at The Walt Disney World Resort. I am unsure when (or if) the dining plan will resume availability; however, I remain hopeful for its return. After all, things at Disney are always changing! Who knows? The plans may be back in full effect before your 2023 arrival! Since the dining plan is currently paused, my family opts to use Disney Gift Cards as our own “dining plan” by setting aside funds before vacation arrives to cover the costs of our planned meals and snacks. We also like to allocate a certain amount to each of our kids on a Gift Card to empower them to make money decisions early! After the funds are gone, they are cut off. After all, I’m not sharing my snack budget! Who says you can’t teach life lessons while on vacation? With the holidays quickly approaching, you can ask our family and friends to gift Disney Gift Cards in place of traditional presents. Sounds like a win-win to me! 

    I hope this helps, Cheryl! If you have more questions while planning your Disney Vacation, stop back by and let me know

    You’ve got a friend in me,
