The wait for the return of the Disney Dining Plans is almost over! Having been absent from Walt Disney World Resort for nearly 3 years, those with vacation packages that include a stay at a Disney Resort Hotel with arrivals on or after January 9, 2024 can choose to add a Disney Dining Plan and enjoy the ease of prepaid meal, snack, and beverage credits for each night of their stay. The original Disney Dining Plan includes two table service meals per day, one snack, and one refillable beverage mug, but if you are one who prefers to spend more time in the parks or at the resort pool than sitting at restaurants, there is another dining plan option for you.
