Free Dining 2017 Rumors

free-dining

I’m seeing the same rumors float around the internet for Free Dining 2017 the past couple of days – enough to share it here.  The following information came from DisneyTouristBlog:

“Rumors are starting to fly that Free Dining will be released on April 24, 2017. As best I can tell, this info is coming exclusively from a Brazilian travel agency.

Normally, I’d write this off. Info leaking out this far in advance of the release date is fairly unprecedented. However, the details seem plausible and I see others reporting the same info (they could just be regurgitating the same rumor, though). Given that, I thought I’d at least share, as an FYI.

Rumored Free Dining dates:

• August 13 – September 30, 2017
• November 14 – 20, 2017
• November 25 – 27, 2017
• December 8 – 23, 2017
As part of this rumor, both Value and Moderate Resorts receive the Quick Service Disney Dining Plan, while Deluxe and Deluxe Villa Resorts receive the standard Disney Dining Plan.

The big pieces of news here: moderates are only receiving the Quick Service Disney Dining Plan.

If this rumor is accurate, that suggests to me Disney is pretty confident in its bookings thus far for the summer, and occupancy projections for this fall and winter. With Pandora in Animal Kingdom opening and record consumer confidence in the United States, this wouldn’t surprise me. In fact, the details and internal consistency of this rumor make it highly plausible in my view.”

 

Of course, this is all a lot of speculation about a rumor that I think could very well be incorrect, but again, I wanted to share since this is the consistent information floating around the internet right now 🙂

That’s all for now!  I’ll continue to keep you posted!

If you need personalized help with planning any aspect of your vacation, or want someone to book the Free Dining promotion for you and provide other assistance along the way–I recommend contacting me, a no fee “Authorized Disney Vacation Planner” (Disney’s term for a travel agent) to get a quote and to help you plan.

I am not just saying this to get your booking, but having your trip pre-booked with a good travel agent (such as myself), helps get the discount for your preferred dates/resort. 🙂

I receive my commission from Disney, so I will never charge you extra for booking your trip and helping you get the most our of your vacation, discounts, planning, etc..

Last year I worked tirelessly for all my clients to get the discount applied to their vacations.  In order to grab the free dining discount, I checked very very early in the morning (3-4am) & had emailed all my pre-booked clients before I moved to new bookings & quote requests.  The longer it takes to book/apply the discount, the less availability there is.  Being pre-booked made the process go much faster!

Have questions?  Email me with any & all questions, I am SO happy to help🙂
