People either love or hate the Disney Dining Plan, but it certainly has a devoted fan base!

Under the Disney Dining Plan, guests staying at a Disney resort can prepay for their meals and snacks. They receive credits for use in the parks and resorts.

I personally enjoyed the quick service dining plan because we like to eat on the go. I wrote about it here.

A Commitment to Bring it Back

Disney wrote today that while they don’t have details to share at this time, they are working to bring the Disney Dining plan back!

We had previously posited that part of the reason for not offering the dining plan right now could be that many restaurants remain closed. They also have not been filling restaurants to capacity.

Bringing back the dining plan will induce demand for their restaurants. Right now, Disney is in the process of rehiring and retraining previously laid off Cast Members as well as bringing in new faces with the Disney College Program.

We said we would let you know when we heard something, and although its nothing concrete, I’m glad Disney signified to us that they know we miss the dining plan and they are working on it!

Do you buy the Disney Dining Plan when you’re on a trip? Why or why not? Let us know in the comments on Facebook.

I prefer the dining plan it allows my family better dining options. And I know I have a trip in Sept and early spring. When I'll have my teenager with me in the spring the dining plan would be wonderful to have back.

Hope it is in place by December. We are returning then. The dining plan is the best.

I have been waiting for them to bring the dining plan back before I book my next trip there. I have been using the plan on my trips there for years.
