Travel Dates: August 20 – September 29, November 24 – 27 and December 7 – 23, 2018*

Walt Disney World has announced its annual Disney Free Dining Discount!!!! Please note that in order to qualify for the free dining offer, your must check in during one of the available dates above. Your stay can extend into one of the black out periods and you will still receive the free dining for your entire stay. Availability is extremely limited, and not all resorts may be available.

  • Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Value or Moderate resort will receive the Quick Service Dining Plan for free. Guests will be able to upgrade to either the Disney Dining plan or the Deluxe Disney Dining plan by paying the price difference.
  • Guests staying at a Disney World Deluxe or Deluxe Disney Villa resort will receive the Disney Dining Plan included for free. Disney World guests at deluxe and villa resorts will also be able to book the “Free Dining”, and upgrade to the Disney Deluxe Dining for the normal price difference.
  • You must also include either the Park Hopper option on your park passes to qualify as well.

Availability is extremely limited, and must be booked by July 7, 2018.

*For Disney VISA Cardholders, the 2018 Disney Free Dining travel dates will start August 2, 2018, all other dates are the same. It also appears availability, especially at deluxe resorts, is much better with the Disney VISA discount. The savings are the same.

It appears that all suites, campsites and 3 bedroom villas have been excluded from this offer, as are the Little Mermaid rooms at the new Art of Animation Resort, Port Orleans French Quarter, Villas at the Grand Floridian Resort and the new Villas and Bungalos at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. All other Disney resorts, including value resorts are included in the offer.

Four night minimum stay required, and a maximum stay of 14 nights is allowed per reservation. You must also purchase a minimum 4 day park pass that includes the Park Hopper Option for the reservation to qualify.

I’ve not posted in awhile because I am in Disney World this week!  🙂

I couldn’t be happier – spending a whole week eating myself sick & enjoying the wonderful Disney attractions.

Speaking of Disney attractions – bonus points to whomever can name the attraction this picture was taken from:
