    If Free Dining is offered in 2018, which is easiest - Include dining in your reservation, and then hope to get it adjusted to "free" if/when the deal comes out? Or to call & add dining to your existing reservation at the time? THX!

    Hi Ashlie,

    Thank you for stopping by today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Glad to know you are already planning a vacation for next year. Same here!

    Mickey is always trying to help our budget by offering us some incredible Special Offers. Some are discounts on rooms, others pay kids prices, or even the coveted Free Dining Plan. Only he knows what he has planned, even though Donald Duck is constantly bugging him to know.

    I always suggest my friends and family to plan a vacation based on their needs and budgets. Select the dates and Resort options that fit your need, and book a Magic Your Way Vacation Package once you have settled on these. You can always add a Dining Plan up to a few days before arrival. But you can also add a Special Offer to your reservation once it comes out. Just call a Vacation Planning Specialist at (407) 939-1936 or your travel agent.

    One last tip: remember to make any advanced dining reservations 180 days before your Check-In. Just visit the Walt Disney World restaurants and reservations page. Happy planning!
