    If staying at a DVC using points, are you entitled to free dining plan if it is offered during our stay?

    Hi Michelle,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. We on the panel love helping guests to plan magical vacations!

    The special offer for free dining is typically a package offer in which you also need to book and pay for other aspects of a vacation, such as a resort room, in order to qualify for free dining. Because this is a package including resort rooms, it is not available for Disney Vacation Club members using vacation points for their stay. Disney Vacation Club members are able to add a Disney Dining Plan to their vacation point reservation; however, there is a cost associated.

    Do check out the Walt Disney World Special Offers & Deals page for other offers you may be interested in, and of course visit the Disney Vacation Club website for member benefits & perks.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Michelle. Please do let us know if you have any further questions.
