    Hi, we have the dining plan(Q,T,S),if free dining is offered in Sept., can it be changed to the Deluxe plan? We are staying at the Bay Lake Towers.All of you are so helpful!! Thanks a bunch!!!

    Hi Janice,

    Thank you so much for your kind words about the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am so glad that you are finding the information here to be helpful. Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is such a great resort. Be sure to check out the Bay Cove Pool. It is one of my favorite pools at Walt Disney World!

    If you booked your reservation using a traditional payment method such as a credit card, you will be able to modify your reservation based on availability if a special offer that you want to take advantage of, such as free dining, becomes available. Availability includes if your resort is included in a promotion. Be sure to monitor the Walt Disney World Special Offers page to see if a promotion you are interested in becomes available. There is no announcement of a free dining offer yet for this year.

    If you booked your vacation using Disney Vacation Club vacation points, you would not be eligible for the free dining promotion as it has existed in the past, because free dining is typically offered as a part of a package deal that requires that you book and pay for a resort room as well.

    If you are simply interested in currently upgrading your Dining Plan to a Deluxe Dining Plan, you should be able to do so by calling 407-W-DISNEY (407-934-7639) for a traditionally paid for reservation, or 1-800-800-9800 if you are booking through Disney Vacation Club. There would be a cost associated with this.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Janice! Please do let us know if you have any further questions.
