    when is the best time to get a free dining plan?

    Hi Laura,

    Thanks for visiting us today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Will you be visiting the Resort soon? I hope so. I cannot wait for my next vacation!

    The Dining Plans are a great way to leave back home any worries about meal budgets. Instead you can worry about what delicacies to try. There are so many options! And when Mickey treats us with a Special Offer like a Free Dining Plan, hot dog!

    Only he knows when and if he will offer us something like that. In years past, these offers have been available for stays during the fall, with bookings in the spring prior. There are also offers for Guests staying at a resort to be booked for a future stay. In the past, these have been made available in the late spring and early fall for stays throughout the following year. Note that there is limited availability with regards to Resorts and dates.

    One last tip: I always tell my friends and family to book a stay based on their budgets. And if in the future an offer is available hopefully you would be able to take advantage of it by simply speaking to a Vacation Planning Specialist at (407) 939-1936 or your travel agent. Happy planning!
