    We are going to WDW for the 1st time with our two children, DS, 7 and DD 4, November 8th-14th. I saw the current promo is for free dining but this doesn't include our dates. why? Will there be another offer soon or are we missing out on any deal?

    Hi Peggy,

    Promotions often have black out dates. I know the current offer isn't available for my family's vacation in October. Bummer, I know! I can tell you that you'll often save even more money by booking the components of your trip separately - hotel, tickets, and paying for food out-of-pocket - than you would if it were all bundled in a package. When you get free dining, you are paying rack rate for your hotel. While this is sometimes a great deal (when your hotel expense is lower than your food costs), it is often more cost effective to wait for a room only discount.

    Now that Free Dining and Annual Passholder discounts have been released, I would next watch for room only discounts so that you'll get a good deal on your WDW hotel.

    You can stay current on all the Special Offers and feel free to call 407-W-DISNEY any time to check on current promotions.
