    Disney just released free dinning today. I've read on some other Disney forums that if you have a Disney visa you can book for earlier dates starting on Aug. 2nd . Is this true?

    Hi, Susan! Walt Disney World Resort has some really great Special Offers each year, but I would have to say the Free Disney Dining promotion is the most eagerly anticipated! This year, the promotion is even more magical for Disney Visa cardholders. What you heard is absolutely correct. The current offer for all guests includes arrival dates from August 20, 2018.  Disney Visa cardholders have exclusive arrival dates, extending back to August 2, 2018.

    To take advantage of this offer, you will need to call (407) 939-7676 and mention one of two Special Offer codes. If you plan to stay in a Disney Value or Moderate Resort Hotel, the code is A4G4C, while the code for Disney Deluxe Resort Hotels and Disney Deluxe Villas is A4H4R. To book the Free Disney Dining Offer with a stay that falls in those exclusive dates, you will need to use your Disney Visa Card to pay the required deposit.

    Each year, the requirements for using this offer changes, so be sure too look over the list to be sure this offer will work well for your family.
    * The package must include a Four-Day Park Hopper or Four-Day Park Hopper Plus Ticket for each guest staying in the room.
    * The package must include at least a four-night stay at one of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels, paying full rate for each night.
    * The 2018 check-in date must fall between August 20 - September 9, November 24 - 27, or December 7 - 23. The Disney Visa offer also includes dates from August 2 - August 19, 2018.
    * Guests choosing a Value or Moderate resort will be given the Quick Service Dining Plan.
    * Guests choosing a Deluxe or Deluxe Villa resort will be given the Disney Dining Plan.

    I hope this information helps you plan a pixie-dusted adventure! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
