    Hello, If a free dining plan becomes available for my travel dates but I already have it as part of my current reservation, how do I get the credit for the promotion?

    Hi, Roseann! Walt Disney World Resort releases various Special Offers throughout the year that can be added to new or existing reservations. The Free Disney Dining Special Offer is a magical offer that so many guests look forward to each year. The specifics of this offer have changed over the years, but typically it can be used by guests who pay the regular rate for the resort room, purchase specific theme park tickets, and visit during a specific time of year. In doing so, they can receive one of the dining plans at no additional cost. The dining plan offered usually depends on the guest room that is picked. This Special Offer sure can make your Walt Disney World Resort vacation supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

    You are welcome to go ahead and book a Magic Your Way Package at any time. Once your favorite Special Offer is released, check to see if it lines up with your travel dates. Some resort reservations can be modified online right in My Disney Experience. Just look for a link next to your reservation that says Change Reservation. If this does not work for you or if you prefer to have some assistance, simply give a Disney Resort Hotel Reservations Cast Member a call. Please know that not all Resort hotels will be included in the offer and the dates will be limited, so you may have to change some aspects of your vacation if you want to take advantage of this delicious offer. If you do successfully have it applied to your reservation, your vacation balance will be credited the amount the dining plan would have cost you.

    Thanks for bringing us this great question, Roseann, and please let us know if we can help you plan more of your vacation!
