    Hi. Does WDW typically offer the Free Meal Plan in May? We are planning on going the middle of the month and I am not sure if I should book our airfare now or wait. Thank you.

    Hi Michelle,

    May is a beautiful time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort!  In fact you will be visiting during one of my favorite events, the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival.  One great feature of this event is admission to the festival is included with your paid admission to Epcot. does a great job with keeping track of the historical data for Walt Disney World's release dates of special offers and deals.  In reviewing the historical information for Special Offers I do not see a Special Offer for "Free Dining" in May for the past few years.  However nobody really knows what the future will bring so it's always a good idea to keep an eye on the Special Offers & Deals page in case an offer for "Free Dining" or anything else is released which could be applied to your reservation.  Although you may not be able to change your flight plans, if you call quickly after an offer is released you may be able to re-book your vacation and have one of the Special Offers applied.  The key is to act quickly after you see a Special Offer released because each offer has limited quantities for each Resort.

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your vacation planning question Michelle.  We would love to hear from you again as you continue making your plans!
