***Update: New rumor here.***
Everyone wants to know: When, oh when, will Disney release their ever popular Free Dining discount for 2013??
The quick answer: No one knows for sure.
The long answer: The good news is I am very hopeful to see fall free dining for 2013. In the past, Disney has split up the fall months into 2 time frames: September and October-December.
For the month of September free dining promotion: Last year Disney released that free dining discount right around March 5, 2012, so we are already a little late for this promotion in 2013. It had to be booked by May 18th for the travel dates August 25 – September 29, 2012.
For the the October – December free dining promotion: Last year, Disney released the free dining discount right around July 12, 2012 and it had to be booked by Sept 29, 2012. The travel dates were:
Sept 30 – Oct 4
Oct 19 – Nov 1
Nov 9 – Nov 15
Nov 23 – Nov 29
Dec 10 – Dec 20
If Disney releases free dining for 2013, I would expect it will be similar to what they did in 2012.
Something many people don’t realize is that you can book your Fall Disney vacation NOW, without the free dining discount with your fee-free travel agent (me!) and then I will automatically apply your free dining discount to your existing package once it’s available – as long as the resort still has availability.
Here’s to a new free dining discount VERY soon!
