    Are certain resorts excluded when free dining is promoted? Is there a historical list somewhere to view to see which resorts are included for free dining plan. Our trip is hopefully september 2016, and the free dining may be offered per previous years.

    Hi, Kathy! Walt Disney World Resort offers great room and package discounts frequently throughout the year, such as the delicious Special Offer for free Disney Dining Plan when purchasing a Magic Your Way Package including room and theme park tickets. There are qualifications that must be met when booking one of these Special Offers. It's hard to say right now what the qualifications of next year's discount will be (and even if it will be offered!), as it changes year to year what resorts or dates are included, and even what type of ticket needs to be purchased with your magical package.

    You are more than welcome to book your choice of Resort hotel now if you would like. You can easily have a Special Offer applied to your reservation by modifying your reservation online in My Disney Experience or by calling the Disney Reservations Center at (407) W-DISNEY, or (407) 934-7639. Simply call, give the Cast Member your reservation number, and let them know which Special Offer you would like to add. They will be able to help you determine if you are able to apply the Special Offer to your current Resort stay, or if you will need to modify any portion of your reservation so that it can be applied.

    There are many websites that keep track of released Walt Disney World discounts. While there is not a website that I know of that keeps track of the full qualifications, such as included resorts, for each released Special Offer, Mousesavers.com does a great job at keeping track of Special Offer dates. When you go to their website, type in a search for "historical Disney discounts" to find the listing.  Stay tuned to the Walt Disney World Resort Special Offers page to keep an eye out for a delicious dining offer for next September.

    I will be crossing my fingers for you that you find a practically perfect offer, Kathy! Please let me know if you have any further questions.

I enjoy giving advice about itinerary and FastPass+ planning, Epcot's fantastic festivals, Memory Maker, and transportation at the Resort. The time I spend at Walt Disney World Resort is distinctive because it is the one place I can forget other responsibilities and focus on having the time of my life with my family!
