    So if you used the bounce back offer and they offer free dining on the dates you reserved, can you get the free dining with the bounce back offer?

    Hi, Kelli! This is a really great question, so I am glad you stopped by with it. Walt Disney World Resort has some really great Special Offers throughout the year. Some can give guests a really great discount on the price of their Resort hotel stay, while others can give you a really sweet deal on Magic Your Way Packages that include dining.

    The two Special Offers you mentioned are really spectacular ones! However, guests are only able to apply one Special Offer at a time to their Resort stay. If you already have the Bounceback Offer reserved for your family and you see that a Free Disney Dining Special Offer is released, you will need to do what I call the "Mickey Math," or a quick comparison of the cost of each. That dining offer usually requires you to pay the rack rate of the Resort room and purchase a specific type of ticket for each member of your party, so be sure to figure those in your cost.

    If the "free dining" offer is released for your travel dates, give Disney Resort Hotel Reservations a call as soon as you can, as I find this discount is usually very limited. The Cast Member you speak with can run the numbers for you on the new offer so you can easily compare it to what you have with the Bounceback Offer. Please note that you may need to adjust your travel dates or even change resorts to help make the new offer work. But, if it saves you a good bit of money, it may be worth it!

    I hope this helps explain how Special Offers work, Kelli. Please let us know if we can help you plan more of your stay at Walt Disney World Resort!
