    Can I still get the free dining if I am an annual passholder and don't need to purchase park tickets?

    Hello, Elizabeth,

    Thank you for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I love being an Annual Passholder so I can visit Walt Disney World anytime!  And a bonus of owning one is the Passholder Extras and Benefits that are associated with this theme park ticket. They can add up to some great discounts and savings. When Free Dine Packages are offered to guests, they usually require a room at a select Disney Resort Hotel and a ticket with a Park Hopper Option or Park Hopper Plus Option.  With these requirements, it would not be an option for you to book a similar package with your Annual Pass. However, there are often Special Offers for savings at select Disney Resorts (all offers are listed here; you'll need to look for those specific to Annual Passholders) offered for Annual Passholders as well as dining discounts, so you may still find some incredible savings. 

    Have you heard about Tables in Wonderland?  It is a dining discount that can be purchased by Annual Passholders that provides guests with a 20% discount on food and beverages, including alcohol, at over 100 participating restaurants at Walt Disney World.  It even includes complimentary resort valet and theme park parking when dining at those restaurants. For my family of 5, we easily make up the cost of the card and begin saving on dining within a few days of one trip.  You may want to look it over and see if it would be an option for yourself. 

    Wishing you a magical day!  Please let us know if we can help with any further questions. -Kara
