    We are planning a trip for March 5, 2014 to March 9, 2014 and we are hoping for a Free Disney Dining deal or a hotel deal,when the deals for the spring will be release?would like to have everything booked so I can make reservations 180 days in advance.

    Hello Helen!  Generally, free dining promotions are offered during times of the year when Disney wishes to boost bookings.  Since March is typically a very popular time for visitors, historically, free dining has not been offered during that month.  If there were to be any specials of discounts for the spring time period,  it likely wouldn't be announced before late fall.  You may be able to get some kind of room discount utilizing a AAA discount or Annual Passholders rate.  A great website for listing all possible discounts and specials at Walt Disney World is . Hopefully, you will be able to find something there that will help you to save some money on your upcoming vacation!

    Helen, I urge you to go ahead and make your dining reservations beginning at the 180 day mark even if free dining hasn't been announced.  Advance dining reservations can be hard to come by, and some restaurants do book up quickly, so if there is somewhere you have your heart set on dining at, be sure to make the reservation - it can always be cancelled later on if you change your mind.

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.  Please let me know if I can assist you further while you plan your Walt Disney World vacation.  Have a magical day!
