    Hi moms, I was just wondering if anyone heard as of late April the 2018 free dining days? Going in October and would really like to save if they are offering it!

    Hi Troy!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. October is one of my favorite times of year to enjoy Walt Disney World Resort! I love the see all of the autumn and Halloween decorations at Magic Kingdom and the Disney Resort hotel, plus I make sure to always schedule at least one day to enjoy the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. Just yesterday, a Special Offer was was announced that features a free dining plan for Guests reserving vacation packages in the fall and early winter. However, travel dates in October are excluded in the valid dates for this special offer.

    The current Free Dining Plan Special Offer is valid for the following dates:
    • August 20 through September 29
    • November 24 through November 27
    • December 7 through December 23
    If you could vacation during one of those date ranges to take advantage of this offer, I recommend that you make your reservation as soon as possible as offer availability is limited. Otherwise, if none of those dates work for your vacation schedule, then I recommend that you keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog over the next few months for announcements of additional Special Offers that may be available for your trip. Often, there are room-only or room and ticket packages available, but only the free dining package has been announced past September so far. Hopefully a package will be announced that works for your trip and saves you a little bit of money for extra souvenEARs!

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
