    Any word on when dining plans will be back

    Hello Carmen! We're happy to have you back here at planDisney!

    Carmen, I think we're all in the same boat, patiently waiting for our beloved Disney Dining Plan to return! Not only do we love the ease and convenience of having the Disney Dining Plan, but for some reason I love the Resort Refillable Mug that comes with it! I think it's a great little souvenir that benefits you both during and after your magical vacation!

    While I wish I had exciting news to share about knowing when our favorite Dining Plan was coming back, your guess is as good as mine!  However, I know that the Disney Parks Blog will be the first to release this information when it becomes available, so I would definitely bookmark that website and check it often! I would like to think that if it returns before your vacation you would be able to add it on as part of your vacation package.

    While we're waiting, there are other ways to prepare for all the dining you plan to do on your trip!  If you ever purchase Disney Gift Cards you and your party could use these to prepay for your meals and snacks and then just swipe them once you're at The Most Magical Place on Earth!  Disney Gift Cards can be used at a myriad of shops and dining locations around the Resort, so feel free to load up on them now and not worry about dining costs later. 

    I don't know about you but I love a good Character Dining ExperienceNow that hugs and autographs have returned, I HAVE to get my kids back to the Resort so my son can get his first snuggle with Mickey Mouse himself!  We love dining at Chef Mickey's in Disney's Contemporary Resort because we know we'll get to see "The Fab Five" up close and personal! If you have children in your party I would highly recommend stopping here for breakfast or dinner.

    Keep checking in with us, Carmen, and we'll be ready to update you with the latest information we have! Have a magical vacation!

Meet the Panelist: Ashley, Massachusetts

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
