No Sign Yet of Walt Disney World Dining Plan Return for Remaining 2021 or 2022

One of the top questions we’ve received regularly since Walt Disney World began their phased reopening back in Summer 2020 is “when is the Disney Dining plan returning?” This morning Walt Disney World released their 2022 packages and tickets for guests to begin booking. Unfortunately, Disney Dining packages remain unavailable.


In the announcement of the new 2022 package and ticket availability, Disney notes, “Disney Dining packages remain unavailable at this time.” The Walt Disney World website continues to read: “Dining Plans: At this time, Disney dining plans cannot be added to reservations. Check back soon for more information.”

Our hope was that when 2022 packages were released (today), we would hopefully see some sort of update on when/if Disney Dining packages would once again be available for either the remaining of 2021 or the new 2022 packages.


Disney has been known to surprise! Who knows, we may just see a release of Dining Plans – and hopefully the free Dining Plan promotion everyone loves to get in on! We’ll keep you posted as we keep a close eye on this one.
