    I see dates for the FALL FREE DINING PLAN. 1 of those dates overlaps our reservation package.11/15-11/21/16 We are @ pop century with 7 days of tickets from 11/12/16 thru 11/20/16. what are my options for getting FDP as part of the vacation?

    Hi Don,

    Looks like you are planning a fall vacation to Walt Disney World Resort. Excellent!

    Free Dining - that awesome promotion where you get one of the popular Disney Dining Plans free of charge for all members of your party, when you book a qualifying Magic Your Way Vacation Package. My family has taken advantage of this offer on numerous times, and it's an excellent way to stretch our Disney Dollars.

    So far, no offers have been announced for the upcoming fall, however they are usually known by late spring,. If such an offer is announced and works like in the past, you must arrive during the eligible dates, and it would be valid for your entire stay. In your case it looks like it might not work since you arrive before a qualifying date.

    If such would be the case, you could do a split stay, however it has some drawbacks. All dining plan packages require a minimum night stay and tickets. You could do two of them, but adding days to tickets is much cheaper than buying two sets. You could do a room-only reservation for the first few days, followed by a package with dining and tickets. You can actually get the tickets from your second reservation up to three days before arrival at Guest Relations, however you will not be able to make FastPass+ reservations for those days.

    Hopefully the dates you mention are incorrect and you won't have to worry about it. Keep a close eye to the Special Offers page. Sending Pixie Dust your way.
