The Disney Dining Plan will finally be returning to Disney World starting in 2024. Here’s everything you need to know.

Disney has been sharing some long-awaited news with fans over the past few weeks. In April, Disney World Annual Passes resumed sales after they were halted in 2021. And now, we finally have more information on the long-promised return of the Disney Dining Plan!

Alongside the news that Park Pass reservations will be changing come 2024, Disney has also revealed that the Disney Dining Plan will be returning for trips in 2024! Specifically, Disney has shared that the Disney Dining Plan will be an option for those staying at Disney World Resort hotels that purchase a vacation package for stays starting January 9th, 2024. Packages will include either the Disney Quick Service Dining Plan or the Disney Dining Plan. These packages will open for booking on May 31st, 2023.

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, several options of the Disney Dining Plan were available to purchase as an add-on to any Walt Disney World vacation purchased through Disney. But, when the parks reopened, the Dining Plan never returned. While Disney has teased that it would be coming back, we hadn’t been given any confirmed information — until now!

What is the Disney Dining Plan

The Disney Dining Plan is a popular way of pre-paying for your dining at Walt Disney World. Before its pause, the Dining Plan was available with a few different options. The top-tier plans included everything from an appetizer to an entree to dessert and even drinks! The plans also included snacks and a free refillable mug for each guest.

The way it worked was that you would pre-pay as part of your package, and then be able to use the plan at certain restaurants. While you would still need to pay for gratuity and any extras (including alcoholic drinks), the plan was popular for helping budget your meals before arrival.
