    Is there any way to find out how many reservations are currently in place at each of the hotels for a future time period (specifically next winter)? To see how crowded they may be... and which ones may be more likely to be included in free dining. Thanks!

    Hello Angela, 

    Although we would all love to know the answer to your question, Disney doesn’t release its attendance numbers or occupancy levels.  There is no of knowing exactly how busy a Resort Hotel will be or how many people plan to visit the Walt Disney World Resort during a given period. 

    In my opinion, the team that writes the “Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World” has some of the best predictions about crowd levels at the Walt Disney World Resort throughout the year.  They also have a website,, that can provide you with this information.  

    As for the possibility of whether any kind of “free dining” package will be released during your potential vacation dates, a look back at past discounts can usually give you a good idea of when special offers may be released, but it’s certainly not a guarantee.  I would recommend keeping an eye on the Special Offers website. 

    Have fun planning your trip next winter!  Please feel free to come back to see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
