A lot of people loved to use the Dining Plan on their Disney World vacations.
With the Disney Dining Plan, guests could basically pre-pay for their meals, drinks, and snacks by purchasing one of four different plans. Then during their vacation, guests would have “credits” to use for snacks, quick-service meals, and table-service meals. When Disney World reopened last year, they did not bring back the Dining Plan. So we asked all of you whether you thought the plan would return this year, and if not, when do you think it’ll come back?
We’re going to preface this by saying that Disney has announced that the Dining Plan will return sometime in the future. So although it’s not available now (and Disney hasn’t said when it will return), we’re expecting to see it again eventually.
It might not be soon, though, according to most of our readers. We asked you on Instagram whether you thought the Dining Plan would return this year, and 73% of you said “No!”
We also asked WHEN you thought it would return, since most people don’t think it’ll be this year. (Except for the 27% holding out hope — we’re hoping it’ll be soon, too!)
A lot of people are guessing that the plan will return in 2022. One reader said “After the holidays.”
Another reader speculated that it’ll return “right before summer crowds of 2022.”
A couple of people thought it would be much longer, with one person guessing the plan will be brought back “after the 50th.” Since the 50th Anniversary celebrations will be running for 18 months, that means the Dining Plan wouldn’t start until the Spring of 2023.
Although some people said it would “never” come back, we know that the plan is going to return, as per Disney’s statement this past summer. So never fear — you’ll be able to stack those snack credits again, we just don’t know when yet.
And a few readers expressed how much they want the plan to come back. One said, “Hopefully by my next vacation!” And then another took it to the next level: “IDK, but I’m not coming back until it does!”
We’ll be sure to let you know as soon as we hear when the Disney Dining Plan is returning. In the meantime, keep following DFB for more tips on how to save money during your Disney World vacation.
