    Hi! I didn’t have any magic pixie dust getting free dining so far over the internet or by phone, but I was wondering, would I have a better chance getting free dining if I were an annual pass holder? Thank you for your help!

    Hi there, Judy!

    While any trip to Walt Disney World can be absolutely magical, it certainly does add an extra layer of pixie dust to be able to take advantage of something like the free dining plan when you are visiting.

    This particular promotion is, without a doubt, one of the most popular and most anticipated. People wait months to hear if the offer will be available, and it can be quite difficult to snag a room with the promotion.

    In this case, you wouldn't have an advantage being an annual pass holder. Everyone has the same chance at booking the package, but if you are an annual passholder, you still have to purchase the minimum number of tickets required by the package. In that case, it may not be much of a special offer, since you'll have to pay for tickets you don't really need to take advantage of the deal.

    There are other discounts to look for. Some great room and package discounts are currently available for summer travel.

    Thank you for your question, Judy!
