    Hi Team! Still planning our trip Dec 6 - 14. I have read that if Dining Plan is made available for our dates, we can't take advantage because we will be in a suite (at new AoA). Are suites exempt from dining plans? Also, are ADR's needed at this slow time?

    Hi, Karen!  While I can't promise you anything, the free dining offer for this fall did include Disney's Art of Animation resort, so I don't think there's an exclusion specifically for suites.  That doesn't mean things will be the same if another offer is made, as the requirements are always subject to change.

    I always recommend Advanced Dining Reservations, at least for the restaurants that you absolutely don't want to miss out on.  If free dining is offered, you'll find restaurants tend to be much busier than they might at other times.  I know it's hard to lock yourself in when you're on vacation, but if you know there are restaurants you would be disappointed to miss, at least book those in advance.

    Have a great vacation, Karen!
