    Do you know when the free dining plan at Disney World will be offered? I have reservations for November 14, to November 20, 2018. I go every year at this time and, take advantage of the free dining plan. Last year it was offered the last Monday in April.

    Hi Lourdes,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am delighted that you brought this delicious dining plan question to us!

    Like you, I love a good deal, so I always check the Special Offers. Although we do not yet have a current offer for Free Dining available for the dates you mentioned, one could be released soon, so just keep checking. I am sorry that we do not have more specific news!

    In the meantime, I will share that, in the past, I compared Special Offers and discovered that the Free Dining package was not always the best deal for my family. Special Offer pricing can depend on your preferred resort hotel and preferred room. If you are flexible with resort hotel type and room type, then the Free Dining deal may present the best option/best price for you. Since it sounds like you are familiar with this process, I am confident you will secure the best price!

    Lourdes, it sounds like you have an existing reservation. If so, and a Free Dining offer or another Special Offer is released, call 407-939-5277 and speak to a cast member to see if that offer can be applied to your existing reservation. If so, you may be able to save some money! I had to make a similar request a few years ago. Although I was initially told that the Special Offer could not be applied to my reservation, a cast member was eventually able to make it work so we saved about $200.

    I hope you are able to take advantage of some additional savings!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
