Many Disney fans love the Disney Dining Plan! This plan allowed Guests to add an “all inclusive” element to their trips by having their meals paid in advance.

When Disney World reopened in July 2020, the Dining Plan was temporarily suspended.

Eager Dining Plan enthusiasts have been wondering ever since: “when will the Disney Dining Plan return?”

2022 Disney Vacations

Vacation packages and Theme Park tickets have now been released for 2022, and Guests are learning a little bit about what the future of Disney has in store for them.

Disney World Park Pass reservations are here to stay, for now anyway. The Park Pass reservation calendar now shows dates through January 2023!

One day ticket prices will remain the same as previous years, but there are less dates than ever available with the lowest price ticket. The result: most Guests will pay higher ticket prices for one day visits than before.

The face mask requirement in Walt Disney World is also here for the time being, or at least until the end of 2021. Disney CEO, Bob Chapek, is hopeful the mask mandate may be lifted by 2022.

Fans also recently learned that they’ll have to find their own way to Walt Disney World. Beginning January 1, 2022, Disney’s Magical Express will no longer be shuttling Guests to and from Orlando International Airport.
