    I want to thank everyone first for the awesome jobs you do. My question is I have booked our trip for August and if the free dining comes out the day after our trip starts can we still be able to receive the deal? It would help us out a lot.

    Hi Pamela, 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for the lovely compliment! 

    From what I understand, all Special Offers, including the "Stay Play and Dine" (i.e. Free Dining) promotion, are often limited to a certain number of reservations at each Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. If you already have a Magic Your Way Vacation Package booked, you will have to cancel it and re-book it with a Resort that offers the Free Dining promotion. You may get lucky and be able to get a package that is identical to the one you had initially booked, but there is a chance that you may not. In that case, you'll have to choose a different room type/Resort if you want to take advantage of the special offer, or you'll have to stick with your original package (and cost). 

    If there is a “Free Dining” special offer in 2016 and the eligible dates for this offer start the day after your scheduled arrival in Walt Disney World Resort, I would recommend contacting Walt Disney World Resort the moment that this offer is released to see whether it would be possible for you to take advantage of it for at least a portion of your stay. They may be able to recommend some alternatives, such as making a “room only” reservation for your first night and then getting a Magic Your Way Vacation Package that includes the Disney Dining Plan for the following nights of your trip. Hopefully, there will be some options available to you to allow you to take advantage of this delicious special offer!

    Have a Magical Day,
