    When the free dining is offered, is it offered to preferred and water view rooms or just standard rooms?

    Hi Antoinette, 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us another question.

    The answer to your question is… it depends! There’s actually no way to predict which rooms at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel will be eligible for a given Special Offer, including any promotions involving the Disney Dining Plan. In fact, from what I understand, most Special Ofter often limited to a certain number of reservations and, possibly even a certain number of room types, at each Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. 

    In order to increase your chances of being able to book a Special Offer, I’d say that it’s a good idea to try to book a room category that has the most availability at any given Resort. For example, at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, the vast majority of rooms are Savanna View rooms. Logically speaking, there should therefore be more Savanna View rooms offering the Disney Dining Plan promotion than, say, Standard View rooms. 

    I hope my answer helps you plan your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort. Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
