    Hi Beth!

    Disney's Dining Plan is a great to enjoy the fabulous restaurants at Walt Disney World and what could be better than dining for free?  While it hasn't been announced if the free dining promotion will be offered again this year, I'm still holding out hope that it will.

    In order to add Disney's Dining Plan to your vacation, you typically have to book a Magic Your Way Package unless you are an annual passholder or DVC member. To be eligible for Free Dining in previous years, guests would have to purchase A Magic Your Way Package with a minimum three night stay and 2 day base tickets. Be aware that In the past few years, guests that stayed at a Value Resort were offered the Counter Service dining while guests in the Moderate or Deluxe Resort category were offered the standard dining plan. Again, this is based on previous years and I have no information as to what might be available this year.

    If you decide to book through Priceline, you will essentially have what is called a room only reservation and therefore would not be eligible for free dining.   Booking through sites such as Priceline when the room is paid in full, you will most likely not be eligible for any special offers that is released through Disney.  If you are considering booking through Priceline, I highly recommend that your reservation is refundable or can be cancelled. Disney does offer a lot of special offers throughout the year, even if the Free Dining promotion is not available there is a good chance another discount will be offered for your travel dates.

    Be sure to check back with us and Disney's Special Offers page for the latest information on discounts and special promotions!

    Have a Magical Vacation!
