    Will Disney do the free dining deal in November for Annual Passholders? I noticed it listed park tickets needed to be purchased.

    Hi, Rhonda! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. As an Annual Passholder myself, I am here to help you understand and maximize your benefits. 

    The free dining promotion available this coming fall is a great deal for non-passholders, but, as you mentioned, it requires the purchase of theme park tickets. In addition, guests vacationing under the free dining promotion must pay full price on their Walt Disney World® Resort hotel room. Typically, the free dining promotion saves guests a total of 25% off their vacation package. Which is "Fantasmic!"but as an Annual Passholder, your benefits are even more magical.

    By taking advantage of the Annual Passholder room-only resort hotel rates, you save 25%-30% off your accommodations. In addition, to commemorate Walt Disney World® Resort's 45th anniversary, Passholder dining discounts at most locations have been increased to 20%. Merchandise discounts have also increased to 20%, including name-brand items such as Dooney & Bourke. 

    Another magical perk, you can the dining plan to your vacation on a room-only reservation and with the savings you're entitled to on your resort room, you're already saving more than the free dining promotion guests. 

    To cap it off, Passholders receive the PhotoPass product, Memory Maker. Our free dining promotion guests still have to add this enchantment to their packages at the full-price. 

    As you can see, as a Passholder, you have a pixie-dusted advantage! To view all the latest Annual Passholder Benefits available to you, just select the highlighted link. 

    I also hope this breakdown helped, Rhonda. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you should have any additional questions.
