    Traveling to disney world in september of 2014, with my husband and 4 yr old twin sons. I know that disney often offers free dining during September. If pay for the dining plan in advance and a promotion is offered later can the money be refunded?

    Hi Ashley!

    I think it is so wonderful that you are getting an early start on planning your Walt Disney World vacation!  I feel like planning a Disney vacation is almost as fun as the vacation itself....well almost.  Disney's Free Dining Promotion always offers some incredible savings and has given my family the chance to try other restaurants we may not have tired otherwise.  While there is no way to know for certain if this very popular promotion will be offered in 2014, I certainly hope that it will return!  

    You can absolutely add Disney's Free Dining Promotion to your vacation,if offered, even after you have booked and paid for your vacation.  In fact, anytime a special offer is available that you will be eligible for you can always have it added to your reservation to save even more of those Disney dollars.  You will just need to contact your travel agent or call (407) W-Disney in order to add this promotion to your reservation. The difference will be refunded to your original method of payment on your reservation.  

    With the popularity of the Free Dining Promotion, I recommend calling bright and early (the phone lines open at 7am) to make sure that you are able to add the dining plan without having to make a change to your existing reservation.  Usually there are only so many rooms allocated at each resort for this promotion and once they are gone you will have to either switch resorts or possibly upgrade to a different room selection.  Be sure to check back with us as your trip approaches for tips and special offers that will save you money on your next Walt Disney World vacation.

    I hope you have a magical visit and please let me know if you have anymore questions!

    Happy Planning!
