Free Dining returns to Disney World later this year in an announcement that will likely be welcomed news to many individuals. Lots of people have been inquiring about the Free Dining offer which used to appear at regular intervals but has been harder and harder to come by in recent years.
As of this posting, the Free Dining Special Offer is currently only available to individuals who possess the Disney Visa. It is expected, however, that the special will be extended to the general public later this week.
Offered dates under the special are for arrivals from September 2, 2013 through September 25, 2013. This period is slightly over three weeks and corresponds to one of the slower crowd periods at Disney World.
Those lighter crowd levels are generally attributed to the fact that most families find themselves with the kids back in school. As such, and likely still to be true even with this special offer, the September period can be a great time to take your vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort.
Looking back at the special, it must be booked in the May 6th through July 31st window. Those booking a qualifying package at one of the Value resorts (Pop Century, All Stars) will receive the Quick Service Dining Plan at no additional charge.
Guests booking a qualifying package at a moderate (Caribbean Beach, Port Orleans, etc.) or deluxe resort (Contemporary, Animal Kingdom Lodge, etc.) will receive the standard Disney Dining Plan added on at no additional charge.
The quick service plan includes two quick service meals and one snack per individual on the package per night of stay (one refillable resort mug per guest is also included). The standard dining plan includes one table service meal, one quick service meal and one snack per individual on the package per night of stay (one refillable resort mug is also included per guest).
Art of Animation Resort – The Little Mermaid rooms along with 3 Bedroom Villa’s and the Fort Wilderness Campsites are not included in this special offer.
