    Just wondering if there is a plan to reimplement the Disney Dining Plan or even a modified offering for the summer of 2021. It is much easier to plan a trip to Disney World if Food is not something we also have to budget for. Thank you.

    Hi there, Paul!

    Thanks for visiting planDisney with your question. 

    I, like you am a huge fan of the Disney Dining Plan. My family loves the ease of using the plan, and how it takes the guesswork out of budgeting for daily meals on a Walt Disney World vacation. It's so nice not to have to reach for our wallets at the end of every meal, knowing that our dining has already been taken care of! With the Dining Plan, we tend to make Advance Dining Reservations for more upscale dining experiences, and over the years we've enjoyed some really amazing meals. 

    As part of Walt Disney World's phased reopening, certain Guest offerings have been paused. Disney Dining Plans have not been reinstated yet, and unfortunately there have been no announcements about if and when they will be returning. I would assume, that as long as dining locations continue to have a limited seating capacity, that Dining Plans may not be offered. Little by little, as Guests Return to a World of Magic, certain Guest offerings have begun to return. Early Theme Park Entry and the Park Hopping Option have recently returned, and several dining locations are newly reopened. As each offering is reinstated, I feel like we're getting a little more magic back into our Disney vacations!

    I'll be keeping a close eye on the Disney Parks Blog for the most up-to-date news and announcements about the return of the Disney Dining Plan. Other great sources of information are Walt Disney World on Facebook and Twitter

    If you're visiting Walt Disney World this summer, I encourage you to take advantage of Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering on the My Disney Experience app. With the ability to order ahead and select your arrival time at select locations, you can spend less time waiting and more time playing! You're even able to customize your order, and there are allergy-friendly menus available at all locations. 

    Thanks again for stopping by planDisney - please let us know if you have more questions before your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
