    Hello. I am DVC and already purchased the Dining Plan for my next trip in Sept. I heard that Dining plan is usually free this time of year. Would that apply to me, and how would I go about this? Thank You

    Howdy Kim!  Thanks so much for your question!! 

    As DVC Members, we do not get to take advantage of free Dining Plans but we do still have a variety of perks that I want to make sure you are aware of.  

    Our prices for the Disney Dining Plans are consistent throughout the year.  This is a perk during peak seasons as the prices of the Dining Plans do fluctuate depending on the time of year. 

    As Members, we receive a 10% discount at a variety of restaurants at the Walt Disney World Resort (check the DVC Member website for a list of participating restaurants).  Be sure to make sure you inquire about this if you are not using your dining plan for one of your meals. 

    Have you heard about Tables in Wonderland?  It's another great option available for Disney Vacation Members!  Currently, DVC Members can join Tables in Wonderland for $100.  Among other benefits, you will receive 20% off on all food and beverages (including alcohol) at over 100 Theme Park and Resort restaurants.  We have taken advantage of Tables in Wonderland for several years (both in conjunction with and separate from a Dining Plan) and each and every year, it more than pays for itself.  

    Please let me know if you have any further questions as you continue planning for your vacation and thanks again for your question!!
