Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • Hello thinking when booking WDW for next October with the dining plan, If Disney announces later in the future free dining plans for those dates would I be able to get that offer and get money back or no?
  • - Asked by Boris from Illinois on 10/10/2013
  • Hi Boris!

    Dining at Walt Disney World,for my family, is just as much fun as riding the attractions themselves.Disney's Free Dining Promotion is an incredible opportunity to save your Disney Dollars and let you try restaurants you may not have otherwise, because after all it's free!  October is a fabulous time to visit and partly because Epcot's International Food & Wine Festival is a incredible way to use all those snack credits!

    Although I don't have any knowledge if or when Disney's Free Dining Promotion will be announced for next year, you can absolutely take advantage of this promotion if you have already booked your vacation. Once Free Dining is available for guests, you will need to call (407) W-DISNEY in order to speak to a cast member about applying this special offer to your reservation.  Due to the popularity of Disney's Free Dining, I recommend calling as soon as this offer is made available.  Each resort will only have a certain amount of rooms set aside for this offer and once they're gone, you will have to either upgrade your room or switch resorts that may still have availability for this promotion.

    If you have already booked a Magic Your Way Package plus dining, the difference will be refunded to the form of payment you originally used to purchase your vacation.  I know some guests like to use Disney Gift Cards to make payments to their vacation, so be sure to hang onto these gift cards because that is where your money will be refunded.

    I hope this helps, Boris and please let me know if you have anymore questions!

    Happy Planning!
