    If my visit starts on oct 1 for one week when will my free dining plan work ?

    Hi Rusell,

    Fall is a wonderful time of the year to visit the Walt Disney World Resort. One of the must see events that I highly recommend is Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. An awesome way to taste your way around the world, with food demonstrations and awesome seminars.

    A Disney Dining Plan is a great way to manage your meal budget ahead of time, since you can include it as part of a Magic Your Way Vacation Package. But wait, there's more! This fall, a Special Offer lets you get a Disney Dining Plan free of charge, for your entire stay.

    Since you will be arriving during the promotion period, you are in luck! The included dining plan will be free of charge for your entire stay. The meal entitlements will be valid from the moment you check in to you Resort hotel, until midnight of your departure day. We've taking advantage of this promotion in years past, usually arriving on the last day of the promotional offer, and able to enjoy the free dining plan throughout our entire stay, including through Christmas.

    Now, remember that you can make advanced dining reservations up to 180 days in advance, so if you haven’t yet, make sure you visit the Walt Disney World Resort restaurants and reservations page, or better yet, use the My Disney Experience mobile app, which makes the whole process like magic.

    See you real soon!
