    WDW generally runs a special for the Disney Dining Plan during the month of September. If a special is offered and we've already booked we can call and they will adjust pricing for that special,is that still the case if our vaca is paid in full?

    Hi Samantha,

    Glad you stopped by today to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Let me help you with some planning tips and maybe help you save some Disney Dollars.

    Mickey is always trying to help our budgets with some excellent Special Offers. Of course, only he knows what he has in store for us. Like Master Yoda said, "Difficult to see. Always in motion is the future.." In years past, offers for a Free Disney Dining Plan had been available for stays during the fall. These have been made available as early as the previous spring, so it is best to keep an eye frequently since they will just show up like magic.

    You can surely apply an offer to your existing reservation, provided your dates and resort fall within the offer's guidelines. Otherwise, you may need to adjust your travel dates or Resort hotel selection. These type of offers typically require a minimum number of days and Theme Park Tickets, and sometimes, specific options like Park Hopper. Remember you do not need to pay your vacation in full until 30 days before arrival. If you already paid it and it results in a credit, you will get it back promptly. Just call a Vacation Planning Specialist at (407) 939-1936, or your travel agent.

    One last tip: be sure to make any dining reservations up to 180 days in advance of your Check-In. Just visit the Walt Disney World restaurants and reservations page, or give a try to the My Disney Experience mobile app. It is nice and easy. Happy planning!
