    Hello, I am bringing my kids and granddaughters to Disney August 20th-27th, we are staying in all stars. I have read that the free food plan is being offered and wanted to know if it was on this week? Thank you

    Hey Howdy Hey Danielle and welcome to planDisney! 

    I am so excited to hear that you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort later this year with your multi-generational party. Your trip will be full of Magical memories your whole family can share for a lifetime! Thank you for stopping by with your question about free dining for your trip. I will be happy to give you more information on the currently available offers. 

    Of the many things that have made their return to the Walt Disney World vacation experience, the availability of the Disney Dining Plan was one of the big ones that made its epic return earlier this year. Now that the dining plan is currently offered for vacation packages to Walt Disney World, Disney also released a Free Dining Offer for Disney+ subscribers earlier this year as well. When it comes to Special Offers available through Walt Disney World, they often come with very specific terms and availability windows. Unfortunately, this Special Offer that was available earlier this year for free dining has expired and is no longer available. No need to be disappointed yet as Disney does continue to release Special Offers throughout the year which may apply to your currently planned vacation. 

    There has been ample early news that Disney may be releasing another free dining plan that will possibly be applicable later this summer through the winter season. It sounds like this offer is available for those with a Disney Chase Visa card. If you are a card member, I would keep checking back over the next few days on the Special Offers page on the Walt Disney World site as well as keep an eye on your mailbox as you may hear more and get all of the details once this offer is officially released through Disney and Chase. 

    Considering you already have a vacation planned, you still may qualify for Special Offers that may be released. In the event a Special Offer becomes available and the details include your vacation package, you have two options to qualify for this offer. You can do this through your My Disney Experience or you can call Disney and speak with a Cast Member about adding this offer to your vacation booking. 

    To add this Special Offer to your vacation, you can log into your My Disney Experience account and go to the "My Plans, Reservations and Tickets" section. Look for your reservation and to the right you should see a link to "Modify Reservation". You will essentially look to rebook your exact vacation however under the Disney Resort Collection hotel option, you should see an option at the top to select the Special Offer. Work through the steps to book your vacation just as you planned it and at the end, you will see an updated total with the Special Offer applied and an option to confirm the changes. Once you do, yippee ki-yay, you have the offer applied and should have an updated total or benefit added, depending on the offer!  

    I hope this information helped discuss the current offers and how to book in case future offers become available. If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach back out and let us know, we are always happy to help!

    To Infinity and Beyond,
