It’s official!! A Disney World Free Dining offer is now available for check-in dates 9/2 – 9/25 in September 2013! This means that guests taking advantage of the offer will get a free Disney Dining Plan with their Magic Your Way package.
Must Arrive Between 9/2-9/25
The offer is currently available only for guests ARRIVING September 2 to September 25, 2013. Our understanding is that a minimum stay of 3 nights is required. The package may not be booked for longer than 14 nights.
This means that even if you arrive late in the offer window, you will still be able to apply free dining to your entire stay. For example, if you arrive on September 25th, you can still have free dining for your whole trip, up to 14 days.
We currently don’t have any knowledge as to whether the free dining offer will be extended in either direction.
Must Stay at a Disney-Owned Resort on Property
Guests must stay at a Disney-Owned Resort. If you stay at a Value Resort, you’ll receive the Quick Service Dining plan for FREE. (Note that you can upgrade to the standard or deluxe dining plans by paying the difference in cost per night.)
NOTE: At the moment, Ft. Wilderness campsites, all 3-bedroom villas, and Little Mermaid rooms at Art of Animation Resort are not included in this offer.
Must Book Tickets
In addition to booking a minimum stay of 3 nights at one of the above Disney resorts, you’ll also need to purchase AT LEAST a 2-day Magic Your Way Disney World ticket. These can be upgraded to include park hopper, water parks and more, and other options.
To book, call 407-WDisney.
Is The Free Dining Offer Right For Your Family?
Since this offer generally can’t be combined with other discounts, it’s often difficult to determine whether or not your family will save more money with Disney World hotel room discount or with the free dining offer.
We break down and compare the costs and options for several Disney World discounts, including the free dining offer, in our DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining e-Book to help you save the most money possible.
