Free Dining 2.0

Maybe. Maybe get free dining. I’m trying my best!

Holy Clarabella Cow… Free Dining has returned!!!!  (in case you need a refresher on the Dining Plan, click here for details)

To fill up the empty spaces in the fall, Walt Disney World has released Free Dining once again for select dates this fall… let me give you the bullet points… please see 2nd half of post for full details.

The most important thing… this is NOT GUARANTEED.  Each resort has a limited amount of rooms available for this promotion, and it is not automatically applied to a previously booked package. So even if your vacation package qualifies, your resort may be sold out. Contact me for details.  Vacation package includes room, tickets, and Dining plan.

When is Free Dining valid?  Great question!  We have to book by September 29th, because on September 30th, this offer will disappear. As long as you check in September 1st through September 18th… November 17th through November 27th… December 8th through December 23rd… you are eligible for Free Dining!

But what if we check in at the end of one of those windows?  No problem! As long as you check in on at least one day in those travel windows, even if its the last day (like, 9/18 or 11/27 or 12/23) you get it for the entirety of your trip!

What are the qualifications?  You must have at least a 4 day Park Hopper ticket, or a Park Hopper Plus ticket… your stay must be a minimum of 4 nights… original package must be a non-discounted package… 

What Value resorts are available?   Art of Animation Family Suites for the entire Free Dining time… and for 11/17 to 11/27 and 12/8 to 12/23, All Star Music, All Star Sports and Pop Century (as in, Music, Sports and Pop are not available for Free Dining from 9/1 to 9/18)
