It’s been almost one year since Disney World reopened to guests and things are starting to look a whole lot more “normal.”
Park hopping has been back since the new year, we’ve seen more fan-favorite restaurants announce their reopening dates, popular spots like Casey’s Corner are back, and Disney just keeps on releasing exciting news. And, today they’re finally answering the elusive question — will the Disney Dining Plan come back to Disney World?
Today, Disney announced they will begin offering the new Early Theme Park Entry perk for Disney World Resort hotel guests on October 1st, and in the announcement, they confirmed that Disney Dining Plan Packages WILL return!
That’s right, the beloved dining plan is coming BACK, baby! Disney has yet to announce an official update on the timeline for the perks return, but fans can rest assured knowing that they will be coming back.
Disney also shared that they will be continuing to reopen more dining locations in the resorts, so there seem to be many more Disney food updates to come!
So, what else is set to reopen or come back to Disney World soon? So far, Disney has announced that ‘Ohana, Citricos (with a new Mary Poppins Returns look), Trail’s End Restaurant, Plaza Ice Cream Parlor, and Dino Diner will all be reopening soon.
Fireworks will be coming back to Disney World tomorrow (July 1st) with EPCOT Forever in EPCOT and Happily Ever After in Magic Kingdom. And within the past few weeks we’ve seen arcades start to reopen, self-serve condiments become available again, and more changes made.
We’ll be keeping an eye out for updates on more changes and news on exactly when we’ll be treated to the return of the Disney Dining Plan. But for now, you can study up on all our tips and tricks for getting the most out of your Dining Plan once it returns. And, stay tuned for more Disney news and updates!
