    Do you have to book the vacation and dining plan at the same time when they offer the free dining plan promotion? or can you book the trip first, then the plan separately if it becomes available?

    Hi Natasha!

    Disney's Free Dining offer is probably the most popular promotion Disney offers throughout the year.  It allows guests to enjoy the plethora of cuisines available in the Disney parks for free (gratuities not included) with a paid vacation package. 

    When a free dining offer is released, my recommendation is to seize it up quickly as there are a limited number of rooms available at each resort.  You would need to book your entire package at once to be eligible for the dining offer.  Should there be no dining offer available, you can book a package and add a dining offer, should it become available at a later date.

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!

Hi there! The Disney Parks have been a part of my life since I was a little girl. Introducing my children, husband, and family to all the magic that Walt Disney World can offer has led to countless moments with Mickey and Friends, Disney Vacation Club membership and fun on the high seas with Disney Cruise Lines! Our vacations are usually centered around a visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth, and I am super excited to help you plan and create magical moments for you and your families!
