    What are the normal exclusions for the free dining plan that Disney sometimes offers? We're a family of 5. Is it usually just for parties of 4? We're staying in a family suite at All Stars Music in the fall. I'm trying to budget! Thanks!!! :)

    Hi Laura,

    Thanks for visiting us today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. Let me try my best to guide you with your planning and hopefully be able to save some Disney Dollars.

    Mickey is always trying to help our budgets with some amazing Special Offers. Some are good for discounts in the room portion of a Magic Your Way Vacation Package, while others include a discounted or even free Disney Dining Plan. This last one is my favorite deal, and it has saved us a bundle in years past.

    Based on previous years, these offers have restrictions and limited availability. Some resorts may exclude certain rooms or locations, but five of us stayed at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside a few years back with Free Dining. While these offers are subject to change, you should know that previous offers are not indicative of what the future bring us, but I am sending Pixie Dust your way.

    One last tip: my suggestion is to book a package based on your needs, and if an offer comes out, be sure to speak to your travel agent, or a vacation planning specialist at (407) 939-1936, to get the offer code added to your reservation. Happy planning!
