Disney will soon be making a new offering unavailable for Guests, but could this bring more changes to the Parks?

It’s no secret that Disney Guests have either loved or hated the latest offerings at Disney Parks worldwide, particularly at Walt Disney World Resort. With the divisive Disney Genie+ service taking over the Parks, the loathed reservation system still in place, and Disney Enchantment replacing the beloved nighttime spectacular Happily Ever After — finally returning to Magic Kingdom later this year — among other recent changes, it’s no wonder why many fans have decided to stay away from the Most Magical Place on Earth and its four theme parks — Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and EPCOT.

Another long-awaited change was the Disney Dining Plan’s return, which proved highly convenient for families and Guests visiting Walt Disney World Resort. Earlier this year, Disney World officials announced a new offering that many thought would permanently replace the Disney Dining Plan.

The recently released Disney Dining Promo Card gives Guests visiting Disney World up to $750 in a digital gift card when they book a non-discounted vacation package for select nights from July 1 through September 14. While the new offering has the potential to add value to many Walt Disney World Resort vacations, the Disney Dining Promo Card will not be available for much longer.

Theme parks and entertainment journalist Scott Gustin (@ScottGustin) recently shared that vacation packages granting a Disney Dining Promo Card offer are bookable through March 27, meaning that you should hurry and book your trip if you’re planning to take advantage of this offering.

Update: The “Disney Dining Promo Card Offer” deal is bookable through March 27.

While the Disney Dining Promo Card offering will soon become unavailable for new reservations, Guests with already booked vacation packages will be able to enjoy the benefits of this digital gift card at select locations in Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, EPCOT, and some hotels throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, through September 30, 2023, per the official Walt Disney World Resort website.
