Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • Hello Moms and Dad, Plan on coming 3 times in 2010-Mar,Aug,Dec- and can't decide on annual pass or not. If free dining is offered in Aug, then we wouldn't be able to use it. With a family of six it's a big promo. Love the panel. Thanks

  • Hello Terry, It is so great that you and your family get to enjoy to Walt Disney World three times in 2010!  It is a big decision whether or not to purchase an Annual Pass.  The rule of thumb for an Annual Pass is: if you plan on going into a Walt Disney World park more then 10 days in a calendar year then an Annual Pass is more economical than purchasing individual park tickets or park ticket packages.  I purchased my first Annual Pass for my son and I this year.  We just love using our Annual Pass.  I will warn you, from my own personal experience that once you have an Annual Pass you will be looking for more excuses to take a trip to Walt Disney World!  As far a missing out on the Free Dining Promotion, if Disney offers it again in August to September 2010, you still can take advantage of the free dining if you stay at least 3 nights in a Disney resort and purchase a one day ticket for each person in your party.  Then you can use your Annual Pass to get into the parks and still get free dining for your family.  I did this in August 2009 and it worked perfectly plus I am going to apply the one day park ticket as a credit to my next Annual Pass.  There is no guarantee that free dining packages will be back in 2010 but Disney has offered this promotion the last few years and it is a great deal for families looking to stretch their vacation dollars.
    Keep Dreaming Big!
