    Hello! Any idea when the next round of free dining packages will be announced for 2020?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    This is certainly the million dollar question, Vernon! Free Dining, a limited-time promotion where guests with qualifying arrival dates receive a complimentary Disney Dining Plan with the booking of their vacation package, has always been very popular with guests at Walt Disney World Resort. I've been lucky enough to take advantage of the promotion a few times so I understand wanting to get that deal for your upcoming vacation! While there's no guarantee of the same special offers coming back year after year, we can take a look at some of the history of this promotion to see what we might be able to expect in the future.

    In the past, we've seen the Free Dining promotion offered at varying times of the year. It has typically been available for booking in the springtime for guests with travel dates in the fall and winter, but this year the offer was made available in January and February for guests with select arrival dates between July 5 and September 30, 2019. With that being said, there isn't any indication when or if we can expect this kind of deal for 2020. My best advice is to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog, which is the first place you'll hear about any exciting upcoming promotions. You can also check the special offers, deals, and discounts page to see if there's anything else that might be right for your family.

    Have a magical day, Vernon!
