    After almost losing my husband to a heartattack & my best friend losing her husband & daughter last year we decided time is precious & we are planning Disney World in December. My question is what time of the year did they offer free dining las

    Hi there Robin! You are SO right! Time IS precious and we should celebrate every milestone to the fullest! Walt Disney World is the PERFECT place to honor your family's personal triumph!

    Special offers with Disney are never guaranteed however, sometimes you can get clues regarding possible future release dates by looking at past discounts.

    A great unofficial resource for this detective work is and then, type "Historical Information" in the search box. Then, scroll down the page for the listing "Historical Information On Discounts for Walt Disney World Resorts". This will give you a chart of previous special offers by date and also lists when each one became available to the general public.

    Thanks for taking the time to visit us at the Walt Disney World Moms Panel and feel free to send more questions our way in the days leading up to your trip! Sending pixie dust to your family that the special offer of your dreams will become a reality!
