    Hello Robin!

    Thank you so much for your question!  I know we all want to get the very best deal when taking a trip to Walt Disney World.

    It is often hard to predict if or when special promotional discounts will be available.  While we can look at past years, there's always the chance this year will be different.   

    If I were in your shoes, I would keep my current reservation as-is for now.  If Disney happens to announce a Dining Plan promotion at a later date, you can call Central Reservations and see if you're able to switch your reservation to the included dates.  It would save the hassle of potentially switching your reservation twice in case you move it now and then have to move it again at a later date.

    I hope you have a magical vacation, Robin! Please come back and see me with any other planning questions you may have.
