    Hi, We are starting to plan our 2022 holiday to wdw, we are coming from Ireland, I'm wondering if you book your holiday via Disney can you add the free dining plan after?

    Hi Roslyn!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    It's a pleasure to answer these questions because moving our current reservations is something we are all looking at right now.  I am very happy to see that you are thinking ahead, and wish to move your Walt Disney World Resort holiday booking to 2022, and it's never too early to start making plans.   

    For the previous few years, the offer of free Disney Dining has been made around April, but this year is a little different, and we don't yet know when, or if, any free Dining will be offered to Guests from the UK & Ireland, for this year, or as a special offer in the future.  I know that sometimes, for myself,  it has not been possible to add the free Dining offer to an existing reservation, and I have had to make a completely new booking to include it.  This is something you will need to discuss with the Walt Disney Travel Company International as the Terms & Conditions may vary.  Please call 1800 812 678 from Ireland, to speak with one of our very helpful and knowledgeable Disney Cast Members.  Keep watching for any new announcements about free Disney Dining available to us - I know I am ready to book again if they release this offer!  For now, you can see all the special offers available, here.

    If you do receive free Disney Dining, did you know that you can upgrade your Dining Plan by paying the difference in cost?  There are four Disney Dining Plans available, including the new Disney Dining Plan Plus which offers even more flexibility with 2 meals per day (of either Table-Service or Quick-Service - you can choose where you use it).  This is particularly useful if you want to use 2 Table-Service credits for a meal, with this plan you don't have 'borrow' credits from another day and can just use both of your meal credits from the same day.

    Please come back and visit us again if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical holiday to Walt Disney World Resort, and keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest official news and updates on any events that may be happening during your stay.
