Free dining has finally been announced by Disney!! I’ll get straight to the details which you’ve been waiting for.
To get the FREE Disney dining plan you will need to book a non-discounted (aka full price) Magic Your Way vacation package on the offer dates.
Available Offer Dates:
- 8/28/15 – 10/2/15
- 10/25/15 – 10/31/15
- 11/8/15 – 11/19/15
- 12/15/15 – 12/21/15
Your check in date must fall within one of the offer dates for your stay to be eligible for the free dining package. If you check in during the offer dates but your stay extends outside of the dates you can have the free dining the whole time.
If the second half of your stay lands within the offer dates you can call up Disney to split your stay so you can at least have free dining during the second half of your stay.
A minimum stay of 3 nights along with a minimum of 2 day park tickets are required for your stay.
Disney Value resort guest will get the quick service dining plan for free, if you are at a moderate or deluxe resort you get the standard dining package for free. If you are at a value resort you can upgrade to the full package for an additional $18.65 (adults)/$3.20 (child) per night.
There are some excluded resorts that are not eligible for the free dining plan:
- Bay Lake Tower
- Villas at Grand Floridian
- Villas at Polynesian Village
- Port Orleans French Quarter
- All-Star Movies
- Little Mermaid (i.e. Standard) rooms at Art of Animation Resort
- Campsites and 3-bedroom villas
- Port Orleans Riverside – only available from 8/28/15 – 10/2/15.
To book you can contact Disney or an official Disney travel agent. Book by 7/10/2015. As with all Disney offers spots will be limited so if you want in on the free dining be sure to book soon.
What if I’m already booked?
If your stay is during the free dining period you can call up Disney to switch packages. You can also switch your dates so they land during the free dining period.
