The free dining package brings joy to hundreds of thousands of families as year as they race to book during the package dates. As a DVC Member, not so excited, we don't get free dining when booking on points.
So, what are the details and how can you get a free lunch at Walt Disney World? Disney's Free Dining promo offers guests booking a vacation package the ability to add a Disney Dining Plan to their package at no extra cost. The catch? Guests must book a 4-night/5-day Magic Your Way room and ticket package at select Walt Disney World Resort tickets at standard rack rates in order to qualify for the free dining offer. Value resort guests can have the Quick Service dining plan (code D3X); Deluxe, Villa, and Moderate resort guests qualify to receive the Standard dining plan (code J4J).
It sounds like a spectacular deal, and can be great, but listen to Mom and check with a Travel Agent who is a Disney Authorized Vacation Planner, like our friends at Kingdom Magic Vacations. A good travel agent will be able to figure out which of the packages currently available will get you the most magic for the least money.
If you're interested then better act fast, because as with all discounts the number of rooms allocated for the promotion are limited.
