    1 Is Disney World offering any free dining packages in 2018? 2 Can you use the pool in a different resort than the one that you are staying in?

    Hi William!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your visit to Walt Disney World Resort times out perfectly with Disney's Winter holiday decor! Not only will you find the sights, sounds and traditional eats of the holidays, you'll find larger-than-life Gingerbread Displays, too!

    Walt Disney World Resort often releases various vacation packages like the popular Free Dining promotion. Some offers are released for the same vacation time period every year, where others pop-up by surprise. All of the currently available bookings can be found on the Special Offers, Deals & Discounts page. But do make sure that your personal contact information is up to date in your My Disney Experience Profile as some guests receive email and snail mail offers for bonus special promotions.

    Guests of most Disney Resort Hotels are unable to "pool hop" at other Disney Resort Hotels. In fact, you'll need to scan your MagicBand in order to enter the pool areas of your own resort. However, guests of Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside are allowed to visit the main pool and the children's splash and play structure at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter, and vis versa. The two main pools are about a 15-minute walk between each other, and don't forget your resort Refillable Mug as it will work at both locations.

    I hope this helped, William, and We'll See You Real Soon!
