RUMOR: Tables in Wonderland Dining Discount Card Unlikely to Return to Walt Disney World

When Walt Disney World Resort reopened in summer 2020 after an unprecedented closure due to COVID-19, many things did not return immediately, including dining plans. For guests who had previously purchased a Tables in Wonderland membership, benefits were still useable, but no new memberships were available.

Tables in Wonderland was a program that offered Florida Residents, Annual Passholders, and DVC members the chance to purchase a membership that provided exclusive benefits such as complimentary theme park parking for dining purposes and special offers, alongside a 20% discount at participating restaurants.

All pre-existing memberships have officially expired as of September 1, 2021, and unlike the Disney Dining Plan, no word has been given regarding a possible return.

The Walt Disney World website reads, “New Tables in Wonderland memberships are not for sale at this time. Additional information regarding future sales of Tables in Wonderland memberships will be shared at a later date.”

Compared to the clear verbiage used regarding the future of the Disney Dining Plan (“While we’re not quite ready to share an update on timing, we are planning to bring this guest-favorite option back at a later date.”), it seems unlikely that we will see the Tables in Wonderland program return.

  1. bob the bean counter strikes again. meanwhile, disney stock keeps tanking. i wonder when the board will act to remove this moron? as if i needed another reason to go to garden grocier and cook in room? with the elimination of the magical express, we will be driving and going to the grocery store to buy our food instead of paying $120 FOR TWO AT SOME LESS THAN APPEALING DISNEY RESTAURANT. however, we will still go to earl of sandwiche. i wonder when bob the bean counter will mess that inexpensive dining option up?

  2. So I guess we can just assume anything that benefits the customer side of the transaction is on the chopping block.

  3. Is anyone really surprised by this??? Gone are the days of real Disney “loyalty” perks like TIW. Just goes to show how they really appreciate (or un-appreciate) their Guests.

  4. One of the best benefits was free valet parking. We used that all the time, but especially appreciated it in the rain. And it’s almost essential at the Polynesian, with limited parking, and the Grand Floridian with it’s remote parking lot.

  5. A lose-lose for all involved, cms could always count on their tips being at least 18 percent. Guests felt like they were getting some value and created and maintained brand loyalty, especially for us locals. Now it’s a crappy 10 percent with AP on just food.
