How YOU Could Impact the Disney Dining Plan When It Returns

Ahhh, Disney World. It’s the place of happy hearts, empty wallets, and full bellies!

Speaking of full bellies, Disney recently announced the return of the Disney Dining Plan. This service allows guests to eat a TON of food at an affordable price. (Seriously, though. It’s a TON of food in order to get your money’s worth. Purchase this plan if you dare.) The Disney Dining Plan disappeared for a while due to COVID-19 closures, but we can indulge in the Plan once again starting January 9th, 2024. We don’t know what the new plan will entail, and we received something today that leaves us wondering if even Disney is still working out the specifics.

Today, we, along with other Disney guests, received a survey from Disney regarding restaurant and dining experiences. As we were answering the questions, we couldn’t help but wonder if the purpose of the survey was to assist with the creation of an updated Disney Dining Plan. Let’s take a look!

First, we were asked to rate our overall food and beverage experience at Magic Kingdom.


We were then asked to describe both positive and negative experiences at Westward Ho in Frontierland.


It then asked us to include the dollar amount that we spent throughout the day.


We were also asked about our feelings regarding the variety of menu choices.


For the last of the dining questions, we were asked about dietary needs.


While this survey could be for a number of things, we can’t help but wonder if it will be used to assist Disney in its decision regarding price points for the Plan, what restaurants may be included, and more. We’ll continue to keep you updated with any and all Disney news, so make sure to follow along for more!

  1. Wish I had gotten the survey! I liked the dining plan since it included desserts…I love desserts but after the meal…when I might not be able to eat much of the dessert….I often didn’t order dessert with no dining plan the additional cost was so high. Plus without plan found myself ordering more based on price than what I would have like to order…with dining plan much more choice without having to worry about which entree was cheaper

  2. Can’t wait for it to come back, we are going in 2025, but our trip in November of 2022 was a pain. I know the dining plan is expensive but I like knowing I have budgeted & prepaid for all of our meals. There is no sticker shock. We took turns paying for meals with my son & his wife but he even said the other day there were things he would have treated himself to at our sit down dinner but refused to shell out 35 bucks for a steak sandwich or expect me to pay for that if it was our turn to pay. When it was prepaid I just ordered what I wanted stress free
