05 Jul Are There All Inclusive Disney World Packages for 2022?
Many people are jumping back into travel again. Whether you’re planning your first trip to Disney or you go every year, there’s a lot to know. Upon reopening in 2020, there were a lot of extra things to know and do in order to visit Disney Parks. As Disney continues to get back to normal, many of those extra hoops to jump through are still in place. The addition of paid Disney Genie+ in lieu of complimentary FastPass+ also adds a layer of planning. You might be wondering if there is an easy way to plan a Disney vacation. Are there all inclusive Disney World packages for 2022? Let’s go over the basics, what you need to know to visit this year and what we’re all still waiting to find out.
Are There All Inclusive Disney World Packages for 2022?
Walt Disney World is not an all-inclusive type destination but vacation packages do cover the big expenses. Even after you have a room booked and tickets purchased, there are many upsells you can opt in or out of along the way. For example, the option to wait in shorter lines used to be a free experience for guests called FastPass+. Now, Disney calls that offering Disney Genie+ and charges $15 to reserve that type of skip the line access. This service is booked the day of in the My Disney Experience app. There are vacation packages that still make things a bit easier and sometimes save you money. As you may have discovered, planning a Disney trip can be overwhelming. If you’re not even sure where to start, travel planners offer services at no additional cost.
With Disney world packages you can typically expect to book something that includes tickets, dining and/or your hotel room. Usually all three of these together! At this time, only hotel and tickets are part of the deal. We’ll get to the dining in a minute. Disney vacation packages can be booked through a travel planner or on DisneyWorld.com. On the top of the site, it’s easy to find where to put in trip date information or click on tickets or places to stay. As you move through a hotel search, there will be a place to add tickets on. It’s a build your own experience type of package.
Note that in 2022, there are still some extra things to do and remember while planning a Disney trip. Though you’ll be paying for a ticket that’s price is determined by the day of your visit, you’ll still need to make a park reservation for that day separately. Disney ticket prices are dependent upon when you visit and cost more at busier times. The park pass reservation is still a separate task you’ll need to complete using your My Disney Account and connecting your ticket to your reservation.
When is the Disney Dining Plan Coming Back?
The closest thing Walt Disney World Resort offers to an all-inclusive experience is the Disney Dining Plan. This all-inclusive style of meal planning usually provides more than a person can really eat in a week. In the past, it was credit based and could include up to breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. The flexible system was a real draw for many guests. The offering did not return when the parks reopened in 2020.
Last summer, Disney said the dining plan would return ‘soon’ and that an official announcement would come at a later time. Unfortunately, things seem to have worked out differently than the company anticipated. The Disney Dining Plan symbol still appears around Walt Disney World. However, there’s no anticipated date for a return or even an announcement of a return. Purely speculating here but I would be very surprised if the dining plan returned in 2022. We’re nearing the halfway point of the year at the time this post was written. We’ve had announcements for spooky season and Halloween offerings already. Christmas at Walt Disney World Resort and the holiday season will probably be talked about soon as we move through summer. At this point I think we would have heard about the Disney Dining Plan if it were coming back this year. I hope I’m wrong and that it pops up. The Disney Dining Plan seems like a good bargaining tool to draw vacationers in. Paying for all meals up front and using credits on the trip is surely preferred by many visitors. If people are already booking without it, there may not be incentive to bring it back yet. Even with Disney vacation packages 2023 recently released, the dining plan has still not been available for purchase or even announced for next year.
