    Why are the dining plans unavailable?

    Hi Judith!

    Welcome to planDisney! It sounds like you're planning your next trip to Walt Disney World Resort and you've asked me a question about one of my favorite topics...vacation dining!

    The Disney Dining Plans have been a great way for Guests to enjoy incredible dining experiences during their Walt Disney World Resort vacations while paying for the majority of their dining expenses in advance. Unfortunately, the dining plans are currently unavailable. When Walt Disney World Resort reopened after its temporary closure in 2020, the dining plans weren't available and they haven't yet come back for Guests to enjoy during their vacations.

    Unfortunately, we don't have any more specific information about the cause of the extended absence of the dining plans or plans for their return. It looks like you still have some time before your trip, so I'm hopeful that the dining plans may return in time for your vacation. I recommend that you follow the Disney Parks Blog for the latest announcements and hopefully, we'll hear news about the return of our favorite dining plans so you can use them on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World Resort!

    Feel free to come back to see us if we can help you again as you continue planning. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
