Unless they extend it, as of today, there are only seven days left for prospective vacationers to book the free dining still being offered this for this fall. The promotion kicked off in July when it was first offered to Disney Visa Card holders, and was opened and expanded after to offer it to all.
The window to book closes on September 26th. Valid travel dates listed are October 2 through November 22 and December 11 through December 17.
The deal involves booking a 5day/5night Magic Your Way Package at one of the available Walt Disney World Resorts. Disney will then add on a dining plan at no additional charge.
If you book at a Value Resort, the Quick Service Dining plan will be added at no additional charge. If a moderate or deluxe resort is booked, those guests will receive the Basic Dining plan.
Of course, packages are limited so even if they have rooms available at a certain resort, that does not guarantee the package will be available at that location.
Also, at this point in the game it might be extremely hard to reserve the dining options you want, but if you are going for free, it still can be a very nice deal.
Walt Disney World has room only discounts available during this period for those not interested or able to get the free dining. Special rates are listed as at least 28% off normal rack rates.
Those looking for savings on packages for the first part of next year will still have to wait awhile. In 2008, the new year specials were not released until November 6th. Of course, you can always book now and try and apply any specials once they are offered.
For more information on the specials, go to the Walt Disney World website.
