    We are planning to take a trip to DW in Sept 2019. If I make early reservations when the vacation packages are released, how would i get the free dining plan if eligible for it?

    Hi Katrina,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How exciting to be in the midst of planning a Walt Disney World vacation!

    If you are booking a Magic Your Way Vacation Package, always check the Special Offers. If a better offer comes out after you have booked, call to speak to a cast member at 407-939-5277 to ask if the newly released special offer can be applied to your reservation. Although I was able to get a special offer applied to our reservation one year, it was not automatic. There is no guarantee that your reservation will be eligible for the new special offer, but you should certainly ask!

    I will also suggest that you compare the prices of special offers. When I have checked the overall price on a package with Free Dining in the past, it has not been cheaper than the vacation package I had booked. So, check the vacation package prices without the Free Dining offer. Include your resort hotel, theme park tickets and a dining plan. Then, check the price with the Free Dining offer and snag the best deal!

    Katrina, one last thought - be sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for more information on the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. This new land is scheduled to open in 2019. I am sending pixie dust your way hoping you get to experience it during your visit!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
