    Hi Moms and Dads! :) Does free dining only apply to people who purchase tickets? As an annual passholder I'm not interested in getting the tickets, but I'm really interested in the free dining!

    Hi Mariah!

        In order to take advantage of a free dining offer there are certain stipulations that need to be met like a minimum nights of stay and a minimum days of park tickets. If you have an Annual Pass and you choose to take advantage of a free dining offer, then you will have extra 2 to 3 day Magic Your Way Tickets (depending on what the free dining offer stipulates as the minimum number of tickets that must be purchased to get the free dining offer).  You can use these Magic Your Way Tickets in the future for a future trip or you can apply them toward the cost of your next Annual Pass when it comes time to renew your Annual Pass.  I have done it both ways when I took advantage of a free dining offer when I already had an active Annual Pass.  You will actually have to do the math because you pay the standard rate for your room under a free dining offer (no discounted rates) but sometimes an Annual Pass room discount actually gives more savings than a free dining offer does.

    I hope that your next Walt Disney World is truly amazing and even magical!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
