    If Disney goes to the tiered pricing is this going to eliminate the free dining option for slow seasons. Thanks so much. I've asked numerous questions and have always gotten info. Thinking about planning trip for 2017 for son and grandkids first trip.

    Hi Larry,

    It’s never too early to start planning a vacation to Walt Disney World Resort. I’m definitely thinking about when to visit next year, and like you, always looking for a way to stretch my Disney dollars.

    Recently, Theme Park Ticket prices have been adjusted and a new tiered system introduced. However this only affected single day ticket purchases where pricing varies depending on three seasons. Multi-day theme park tickets are priced the same regardless of the time of year. Another change that took place at the same time, is that Magic Your Way Vacation Packages now require a minimum two-day base ticket for all reservations.

    Only the Big Cheese knows which or when Special Offers may become available. In years past, Free Dining would be offered in the fall, in which a Disney Dining Plan would be free of charge for the duration of stay, with the purchase of a Magic Your Way Vacation Package. Fall offers have typically been announced during the early summer.

    There’s still plenty of time to plan. My suggestion is to always plan for a vacation based on your availability, but be flexible to adjust the days or resort in order to take advantage of whatever offer becomes available. If you have any more questions, don’t hesitate to come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. See you real soon!
