    If you buy the annual pass and free dining becomes available with a resort package, can you get the free dining?

    Hi Tammy,

    Thank you for stopping by today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It may be a few months away, but in no time, you'll be ready to enjoy Spring at Walt Disney World Resort.

    My family and I love the Dining Plans, since it's the best way to forget about meal budgets or bills when we get home. And if the coveted Special Offer of Free Dining is available, count us in! We try to take advantage of Mickey's best offer almost every year.

    Annual Passes are extremely valuable, and typically worth it with just two visits in the same year. The Annual Passholder Program give you discounts on dining, merchandise and even stays at Disney Resort Hotels. Plus, access to all of your Disney PhotoPass Service memories. The current Free Dining Offer requires a minimum of 4-Day Tickets with Park Hopper Option, but not sure what Mickey has in store for us for the future. Many Guests take advantage of these offers and upgrade the Tickets to Annual Passes as soon as they get to the Resort. Others prefer to wait for room-only offers or discounts.

    One last tip: don't forget to start thinking about restaurants. Reservations can be made up to 180 days of your Check-In. Happy planning!
