Walt Disney World has announced it’s annual Disney Free Dining! Please note that in order to qualify for the free dining offer, your must check in during one of the available dates above.

  • Guests staying at a Walt Disney World value resort will receive the Quick Service Dining Planfor free. Guests will be able to upgrade to either the Disney Dining plan or the Deluxe Disney Dining plan by paying the price difference. To upgrade to the Disney Dining Plan, the increased cost will be $19.86 per adult per night of your stay, and $3.41 per child.
  • Guests staying at a Disney World ModerateDeluxe or Deluxe Disney Villa resort will receive the Disney Dining Plan included for free. Disney World guests at moderate, 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.

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, Port Orleans Riverside, All-Star Movies and the new Villas at the Grand Floridian Resort.

Three night minimum stay required, and a maximum stay of 14 nights is allowed per reservation. You must also purchase a minimum 2 day basic park pass per person per reservation to qualify.

Please note, Walt Disney World has also announced a room only discount for August 16 – October 3 travel dates only. For most people, the free dining will be a better deal, as you cannot combine the two deals.  I’m happy to check both offers for you to be sure, though!

free-dining

***The below is just a rumor I’m seeing in the Disney internet circles***

This post will be short & sweet, since there are no details yet, but I wanted to pass on that there are rumors about free dining being released in the next several weeks for September 2014 travel dates.  These rumors are the first I’ve seen all year for free dining, so this makes me hopeful we’ll see it soon!

2014 Walt Disney World “Intro to Disney” Discount

988267_578748522176354_533293707_n

 

Disney released a sneak attack discount today for early 2014 – it was released without much hype or hoopla.  I was kind of surprised to see this discount – and I feel like it makes our chances of seeing Free Dining for early 2014 pretty slim.

Travel dates: January 5 – March 5, 2014

Walt Disney World has released a new discount today, this Intro to Disney offer. There are currently two offers available for similar dates, the Play, Stay, Dine and Save offer and the Winter Room offer. 

Discount Requirements

  • Minimum 3 night stay
  • Maximum 14 night stay
  • Minimum 2 day park pass must be included in the package
  • Dining Plan must be included in the package
  • Guests staying at a Walt Disney World value resort must purchase the Quick Service dining plan or better
  • Guests staying at a Walt Disney World moderate, deluxe or deluxe villa resort must purchase the Disney Dining plan or better

No group rates or other discounts apply. Advance reservations required. Offer excludes campsites, 3-bedroom villas, Disney’s Art of Animation Resort and The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Excludes alcoholic beverages and gratuities. Children ages 3-9 must choose from the children’s menu, if available. Some table-service restaurants may have limited or no availability at time of package purchase.

This discount excludes the Little Mermaid rooms or Family Suites at Art of Animation, Villas at the Grand Floridian, 3 bedroom villas, suites and the campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness.

This offer must be booked by December 31, 2013. Not all nights or resorts may be available. At this point, it does not appear that any nights have been blacked out, but many nights around the Walt Disney World Marathon and President’s Day Weekend may be difficult to find. Availability is extremely limited, act quickly for best availability. Please note that you must check in by March 5, 2014 in order to qualify for the discount. If you check in March 5 or earlier, you should receive the discount for your entire stay, based on availability.
