Hello again! I’m back today to talk about one of my all time favorite WDW promotions:
FREE DINING! That’s right, this post is how to eat for free at Disney World.
Disney free dining promotion:
While this is not a guaranteed promotion every year, The Disney free dining promotion is usually is offered from late August through Mid December. With some black-out dates in between. Free dining can usually be booked through July 8th of the year you are going, give or take.
You must stay on property and have at least 2-day Park Hopper, or Water Park, fun and more tickets to eat for free at Disney.
You must also stay for a minimum of 3 nights to get the promotion.
Port Orleans French Quarter and Art of Animation Little Mermaid rooms rarely/never are included in the promotion. Other resorts may be excluded from the promotion too, depending on when it is. Each resort has a limited number of rooms that can include free dining, so you have to be a little flexible when trying to get free dining.
Usually, if you are checked in to your resort by the last date of the promotion, you should get free dining for your entire trip.
If you are booking with a Disney Travel Planner, they should get you free dining the day it becomes available.
If you are booking yourself (why are you not using a travel planner for free??) you will need to cancel any existing reservation that you have and rebook it with the Disney free dining promotion.
Guests staying in Value Resorts get the Disney Quick Service Dining Plan with this promotion.
Guests in Moderate and Deluxe resorts get Disney’s Standard Dining Plan.
Guest can upgrade their free dining for a higher tier of dining for an additional price. Once again I recommend going through an Authorized Disney Travel Planner for this. (Did I mention it’s free for you?)
2017 dates have not yet been announced, but stay tuned, as soon as they are announced, I will be on it! I should also be an Authorized Disney Travel Planner by then if you need any help let me know!
