    Why is Disney World not offering Disney Dining Plans?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Dan. It looks like you'll be traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort in just a little over a week. You must be so excited! I know I would be. 

     I am a longtime fan of the Disney Dining Plans. As a mom of three, I really appreciated the convenience and value the dining plans added to my family's Disney vacations! Disney Dining Plans have been temporarily unavailable as part of Disney's phased reopening process. My guess is as good as yours, but I'm assuming that the plans were paused since many dining locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort were temporarily closed. The good news is, many restaurants have slowly, but surely reopened and we know that the Disney Dining Plans will eventually return, as announced on the Disney Parks Blog. No return date has been announced yet, so my best advice is to keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog. It's your best resource for news and updates about Disney Parks and destinations! As services and experiences return to the Walt Disney World Resort, we'll surely see those announcements posted on the Disney Parks Blog.

     In the meantime, you may want to consider purchasing Disney Gift Cards in the amount that you would have spent on a dining plan. This is a super great way to budget for your dining expenses during your stay. Having Disney Gift Cards for your trip is like having a little pixie-dust in your wallet!

     Your upcoming stay is the perfect time to enjoy the kickoff to The World's Most Magical Celebration! Don't miss all the incredible new offerings, like Disney Enchantment and Harmonious. 

     I hope this was helpful, Dan. I'm wishing you a Disney vacation that is practically perfect in every way!
