    When will the free dining plan dates be announced?

    Hi Jessica! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Just thinking about dining at the Walt Disney World Resort is making me hungry! With so many different dining options it is hard to narrow it down to only a few during my vacations! Whenever we vacation at Disney we typically tend to purchase one of the Disney Dining Plans. This allows us to better budget our money ahead of our stay and leaves me less stressed! In my opinion there is also a lot of flexibility that is offered with the Disney Dining Plans.

    Unfortunately there is no way to know if or when they will release free dining. The best suggestion that I can offer is to watch the Special Offers section of the Walt Disney World Resort. They are constantly updating this section and offering new Special Offers!

    I do always suggest that if there is a specific week that you are hoping to vacation that you book it now because you never know if Free Dining will be offered!

    I hope that you find the vacation of your dreams!
