New and Missing 2016 DDP

Each year Disney makes changes to the Disney Dining Plan, some restaurants get left off while others get added to the list. Let’s take a look at What’s New & What’s Missing from the 2016 Disney World Dining Plan.

Well the answer to “What’s Missing” is nothing that has been included in the past except for Planet Hollywood at Disney Springs.  This is due to it being under Refurbishment.

From the time the new dining plans release to the beginning of the year there are always places (usually at Epcot and Disney Springs) that are not included in the list.  It has to do with third party vendors and signing contracts.  We are happy to report that it looks like all contracts have been renewed and all the participating restaurants from 2015 are back in 2016!

Here is a look at the restaurants originally excluded from the 2016 plan that are back on:
