    We will be staying on Fort Wilderness November 2nd thru the 11th. I did some research and the past 3 years they have offered the dining plan for free, How does that work? what plan is it and can you upgrade it to a different plan for and extra charge?

    Hi Kimberly...A fellow New Yorker here!  Disney's Fort Wilderness Campgrounds and Cabins are wonderful places to spend your Disney vacation!  I love the rustic feel of the resort, and the cabins have so many amenities!  Free Dining is one of the most popular promotions Disney offers.  Historically, Free Dining has been released periodically throughout the years.  However, we aren't privy to when and if they will be releasing it for the 2012 summer or fall months.

    When the free dining promotion is released, it is available for a limited time and in a limited amount of rooms, so it always helps to book quickly.  As for dining plans, the Value resorts receive Quick Service Dining and Moderates and Deluxe resorts receive Basic Dining plan.  You are able to upgrade to a different plan if you wish to.  For example, if you are staying in a value resort, and you wish to change your dining plan to the basic plan, you will be responsible for the cost difference between the Quick service and Basic Dining plan.  

    Keep in mind that if you booked your vacation package with a different promotion, such as 40 % off room discount or any other special offer that may have been release, you will need to change your reservation over to a free dining reservation.  You may only use one promotion/special offer per reservation.

    Hope that this helps you plan a magical vacation!
