    Planning to visit in Oct 2013. If I book now, and then free dining is offered later, will I be able to add it to my package? We did last year, but had booked thru travel agent. Can this still be done if I book pkg myself and DDP is offered later?

    Hi, Kim!  You can absolutely do this yourself, but it's not quite as simple as adding.  What you essentially do is rebook your reservation with the free dining promotion added.  

    There are a limited number of rooms with a free dining promotion, so what you'll want to do is call right away when you see the promotion offered and have them change your reservation.  It's a quick phone call, and a travel agent usually calls for several clients at a time because it's a fairly simple process.  I would still book the room you want now, and then if for some reason you cannot get the same resort or the same accommodation type, you can decide which is more important - the perfect room, or a great room with the dining plan.

    I hope this helps, and I will keep my fingers crossed that they offer free dining!
