Free Dining at Walt Disney World

Free Dining at Walt Disney World has been around, it seems like, forever. It’s become one of the most popular Disney promotions ever. But just What is Free Dining? For the last couple of years, the top discount Disney has been offering is the Disney Dining Plan for free as a inducement to get more people to come to WDW. It’s been a huge success. The big question is, when will Free Dining Finally Die? (Dad’s been trying to kill it off for years.)

What is Free Dining at Disney World?

Free Dining is a discount Disney offers guest to get them to stay at the Disney Hotels. In fact it’s one of the most popular discounts Disney has ever offered. Here’s how it works. You book a package that includes a Disney Hotel and probably tickets and Disney gives you the Disney Dining Plan.

You get a different Dining Plan depending on the hotel you choose. Value (and maybe Moderate) Resorts get the Quick Service Plan and Deluxe Resorts get the Regular Plan.

The Restrictions

Over the last few years, Disney has been piling up extras you have to purchase before you can qualify for Free Dining. First it was tickets. Then it was tickets with the Park Hopper option. Next came the Park Hopper Plus option.

Also, the number of rooms available keeps getting smaller each year. If you aren’t one of the first to book, you are going to end up with a more expensive room than you planned.  Oh, and the number of days it’s available keeps getting less and less each year.

How do Get Free Dining?

How do you get Free Dining? First, you call on my friends over at Destinations to Travel and ask them if it’s available. Then you sit back and let them take care of all the details of your trip. How cool is that? Get started today.

Dad’s Bottom Line

Free Dining at Walt Disney World is a great promotion. It will save you tons of money on your trip. If you can get it, by all means do.
