    Do you think Disney will offer free dining in October 2013 or any other discounts. We will be there, October 20-28.

    Hi Eric, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  If only we had a crystal ball to be able to predict when Disney will release their fabulous free dining promotion!  Unfortunately, we don't, so we have to wait along with everyone else for the announcements of specials and discounts on Walt Disney World vacations.  To be perfectly honest with you Eric, it is highly doubtful that Disney will release free dining during the time you will be visiting.  The month of October is a very popular time for visitors to Walt Disney World, due to the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival and Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween party, both of which take place throughout the entire month.  The free dining promotion is usually announced for time periods when bookings are lower, such as this year for the month of September.

    A great website for finding any possible discounts at Walt Disney World is .  Check them out for ideas on how to save at Walt Disney World, including AAA room discounts - they keep an extensive list of the most up-to-date information, and hopefully you can find some way to save on your October vacation.

    Good luck with finding a discount, and keep checking - you never know, a little pixie dust may happen and you'll get that free dining you're hoping for!  Have a magical day Eric, and please don't hesitate to ask me any other questions you may have before your Walt Disney World vacation!
