All About Free Disney Dining Promotions
There have not been any Disney Free Dining Promotions released for 2014 yet but there is a strong rumor that a promotion for September will be released to Disney Visa cardholders on Monday, April 21st and to the general public on April 24th. We're keeping an ear to the ground for you.
Please use the form to the left and we will send an email as soon as a Free Dining Promotion is released.
Here is how past free dining promotions have worked:
If you booked a qualifying vacation package at select Disney moderate or deluxe resorts, ayou received the Standard / Plus Dining Plan at no extra cost. This dining plan includes 1 counter-service meal credit, 1 table-service meal credit, and 1 snack credit per person, per night of stay. Receiving this dining plan free of charge saves a family of four about $107 or more per night of stay, based on the regular cost of this dining plan. You can upgrade to the Deluxe dining plan by just paying the difference between the standard and the deluxe plans.
If you booked a qualifying vacation package at select Disney Value Resort (All-Star Sports, All Star Music or Pop Century Resorts), you received the Disney Quick-Service Dining plan at no extra cost. The quick-service plan provides two quick/counter-service meals + 1 snack per person, per night of stay. Receiving this plan at no extra cost saves a family of four about $85 per night of stay. You can upgrade to the Standard or Deluxe dining plans by paying the difference between the quick service dining plan and your preferred dining plan. Contact us for details.
Minimum Requirements: Must purchase a package that includes at least three (3) Consecutive nights stay at a Disney Resort + at least 2-Day Disney Magic Your Way theme park Tickets. Maximum stay: 14 days.
Other Details: .You must pay a $200 deposit at the time of booking with the balance due 45 days prior to arrival. The deposit is completely refundable up to 45 days prior to arrival so there is no risk at this time. If you think you want to take advantage of Free Dining, book a room and then cancel later, if necessary.
Fort Wilderness campsites, 3-bedroom villas, and Standard Rooms at Disney's Art of Animation are usually excluded from this offer. The Cabins at the Fort Wilderness campground are usually included in the promotion. Children ages 3 - 9 must order from the children's menu. Children under age 3 do not require a theme park admission ticket and do not participate in Disney Dining Plan - they may share food with parents.
Existing reservations falling within promotion days can be altered (subject to availability) to reflect the free dining promotion after it is released. We do this automatically for our clients but you may have to call and ask to have the discount applied – it will not happen automatically - if you book with someone else. If you do not have us book this for you, be sure to tell the booking agent that you want the free dining promotion when it is released; they do not automatically apply promotions to new or existing reservations – you must specifically ask for the discount.
Dining Reservations – Dining can be booked up to 180 days prior to your arrival. Book your dining reservations as soon as you are eligible. The free dining promotion has a serious impact on the number of available dining reservations and some restaurants will fully book very early. Remember that we book dining reservations on your behalf (subject to availability) when you book your Disney vacation through Build A Better Mouse Trip.
Even More Free Things: In addition to the free dining promotions, you can receive vacation planning help at no additional cost when you book your Disney vacation through Build A Better Mouse Trip. We provide 1) a “Best Days” itinerary to put you in the best park for each day of your trip, 2) help with dining reservations (subject to availability), and 3) either a subscription to TouringPlans.com, or an Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World (guidebook) to help you with theme park touring plans that keep you ahead of the crowds and out of the long lines. Contact us today to book your vacation.
Benefits to non-U.S. residents: Because we are a U.S. based travel agency, we can book this promotion on behalf of international clients and you'll still qualify for free dining even if it isn't being offered in your country. U.S. packages and tickets may be different than those offered internationally so be sure you understand what your package includes.
