Everyone has been wondering "When will the Disney Dining Plan return?" The topic has spured much discussion and speculation from bloggers, annual passwolders, travel agents and travellers! Disney has been less than forthcoming on the subject. As most things return back to Disney World, the Disney Dinign Plan is among the last to return. It's fate, including any promotions about free or discounted dining options, has been uncertain. Until now!
"Time to eat! Disney dining plans will be coming back as an option for those staying at Disney Resort hotels who purchase a vacation package with us starting with stays beginning Jan. 9, 2024, which will also open for bookings on May 31. We know our guests – and families in particular – have missed dining plans, which offer guests the convenience and peace of mind of pre-paying for their meals and snacks. Guests will be able to choose from two popular options: Packages that include either the Disney Quick Service Dining Plan or the Disney Dining Plan. Both plans will be a great value for families with young children with access to many spectacular food and beverage offerings across Walt Disney World.
