Disney World Free Dining 2016 Dates

Stay-Play-Dine-WDW

By far, the most popular discount Disney offers is the Free Dining discount.  It’s such a great deal, too!

Already, I have a list of people wanting to know as soon as I do when free dining will be offered for 2016.

Do you want to be in the know, too?   Email me & I’ll add you to that list!

In the meantime, while we wait for free dining to be released (hopefully!) in 2016, here’s some answers and helpful information to plan your trip that gives you the best advantage of getting the discount:

Normally, it’s announced in late April/earlyMay, with booking opening first for Disney Visa cardholders and the general public a few days later.

Here are the Walt Disney World Free Dining dates that were available for booking in 2015, which should give you some insight into what will be offered in 2016:

  • August 28 through October 2
  • October 25 through October 31
  • November 8 through November 19
  • December 15 through December 21

Here are the room exclusions: All-Star Movies, Bay Lake Tower, Port Orleans Resort Riverside (except the first set of dates), Port Orleans Resort French Quarter, Fort Wilderness campsites, Grand Villas at all resorts (3-bedroom Disney Vacation Club rooms), Art of Animation Little Mermaid Rooms, and the Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, are all not eligible for Free Dining.

Trying to plan your trip with a check in date that coincides with the previous year’s free dining discount dates & staying in a resort that wasn’t excluded last year helps a lot!

Also, and 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.

Last year, for everyone who pre-booked with me, in order to grab the free dining discount, I checked very very early in the morning.  Then I moved to new bookings.  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 🙂

Here we are again, close to a new set of discounts to be released for Disney World.  The rumors are flying – nothing is certain yet of course.  But this is what I’m hearing on the Disney-sphere:

Rumor is 2014 Disney World discounts will be released Tuesday, October 8th, 2014.  There is no word yet if Disney Visa cardholders will see a preview of these deals.

The rumor is there will be a room only discount and a Stay, Play, & Dine Discount for most dates January – April 2014.

Here are the details:

Room Only – Save up to 35% off your room rate for the following dates.

Available dates are 1/5-3/2/14 and 3/16-4/12/14.

Stay, Play, & Dine Offer – Adults pay child’s prices on dining plan & tickets

You will pay rack rate on your room, but you pay the child’s price on your tickets and dining plan.  If you stay at a deluxe/moderate resort, you get the full service dining plan at a child’s price.  If you stay at a value, you get the quick service dining plan at a child’s price.

Available dates are 1/5-3/2/14 and 3/16-4/12/14.

Again, these discounts are just rumors right now.
