    Hi, I bought my plane tickets for a trip to WDW for 11 days in September 2020! I hope Disney will offer the promo of the free Dining Plan in 2020 again and if so, do you know when it is usually announced? I'm waiting to book the hotel for that promo...

    Hi Elise,

    Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah! I'm super excited to hear that you're in planning mode for a getaway to "The Most Magical Place on Earth" next fall! With your airfare already booked, that's one big step already done, and I can't wait for you to make all of the rest of your plans. Let the Disney dreaming begin!

    While we can never know for sure what special offers will be made available, I'm happy to let you know that for 2019, a free Disney Dining Plan was offered twice for fall stays. The first time the offer was available was early in January, and the second one was in mid-July. In 2017 and 2018, free fall dining was offered towards the end of April, so I'd definitely encourage you to check in on the Special Offers, Deals, and Discounts page every so often to see if anything has been announced. I'd also suggest following the Disney Parks Blog, as they'll often shout out new special offers, too. I'm sending some pixie dust that the perfect special offer will come along for your visit!

    Did you know, though, that it's possible to add a special offer to an existing Disney Resort hotel stay? If you'd like to go ahead and book your room, you'll be able to apply a discount later, as long as your reservation meets all of the requirements. That can be the best way to guarantee a room at the Disney Resort hotel where you'd most love to stay!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Elise, and please come back and see us again if we can help with anything else as you're planning your trip. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
