    Reservations for 5 nights 10/18-23 to take advantage of free dining offer. Airfare cheaper if we fly down 10/16. Can we make a separate hotel only reservation for 16 & 17, then check in for our original vacation on 18 and still take advantage of FDP?

    Hi Sandy! How lucky that you received a special free dining package offer for October! If you want to come down to Walt Disney World before your Free Dining email offer starts on October 18, you should make a separate reservation for those first few nights so you can still take advantage of that Free Dining Offer for most of your trip. You could choose a room-only reservation at the same resort, or try out a different resort for a couple of nights and then transfer over to the resort where you booked the vacation package with Free Dining.

    Wishing you a magical October vacation! Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! We'd love to help!
