2 New Disney Visa Cardholder Offers for Late 2016 & Early 2017

Are you a Disney Visa Cardholder?!?! Well, Disney just released a promotion for those that book their January 1st - March 8th Disney vacation with their Disney Visa card. It is the Stay Play Dine promotion which includes a discount for eligible packages that include resort, tickets and dining plan. In order to receive the discount, you MUST have a Disney Visa card and you must have made a $200 payment with the card (usually the deposit).

If you have a Disney Visa and haven't booked your winter 2017 Disney vacation, contact us today! If you have already booked your Disney vacation using a Disney Visa, we have already been on the phones, checking for availability!

There was also a room only discount released for those packages that didn't include the dining plan. (Disney Visa card as well)

I've been told the promotion will be released to the general public on Monday, so you know where your friendly Build A Better Mouse Trip travel agents will be at 4am on Monday!! Getting discounts for YOU, our clients!!

(As always, Disney promotions are limited on availability)

Disney World Free Dining 2016 - Computer Glitch Provides Possible Dates

A weird thing happened on the Disney Travel Agent Website recently....some dates were posted for this year's Disney World Free Dining Promotion and then were quickly taken down again.  Nothing is certain until it is officially announced but the qualifying arrival dates that were briefly posted for this year's Disney World Free Dining promotion were:

  • August 23 - October 1, 2016

  • November 15 - 21, 2016

  • November 26 - 28, 2016

  • December 10 - 21, 2016

Remember that your arrival date is the thing that determines promotion eligibility - if the dates above are correct, the person who arrives on December 21st will have free dining for the full duration of their trip, even though most of their vacation is outside of the promotion dates but the person who arrives on August 22nd will not qualify for free dining, even though most of their vacation would be within the qualifying dates.   In a case like that, we will often book a "room only" reservation for the arrival date and then have the package start the next day.  Other restrictions may apply - for example, certain resorts or room categories are sometimes excluded.

Again,  I need to stress that none of this is official yet but think a Disney World the promotion will be released very soon - probably on or near April 25th.  Once officially announced, competition will become fierce for reservations at popular restaurants as soon as it is released.  We'd love to help you avoid all that stress and disappointment by getting your reservations in place now.  We can book your Disney World vacation package now and book dining reservations for all arrivals through mid-October 2016.  Lots of other people are already doing the same thing and we're already having trouble getting reservations at certain restaurants.  Once the Free Dining Promotion is released, we'll immediately apply it to all of our clients' qualifying reservations; saving you the hassle and worry of watching for you.  You can cancel later so there's no good reason to wait!

Will Disney Keep Offering Free Dining?

Will Disney World continue to offer Free Dining Promotions?

I have no secret, insider information and while I do think there is a very good chance we’ll see a Disney World free dining promotion for this fall, for the first time, I am not sure how much longer it will be offered.  Here are my thoughts - construction walls in the parks and worries about hurricanes or the economy  will impact the number of bookings at Disney World and these are all good reasons to think Disney will roll out a proven performer like free dining to keep people coming through the gates this fall.  Here's the thing, they have released a modified "Free Meal" offer that includes only one quick-service meal per guest, per night for guests staying at a value resort the past couple of summers.  This is actually a really great deal compared to typical summer offers but I can't help but wonder if Disney is testing the response to this promotion as a potential way of phasing out full free dining promotions once they start opening those new Star Wars, and Toy Story lands they're building.  Those new lands are very ambitious projects that are sure to drive big numbers of guests to the parks.  Couple that with the fact that, in 2017, the changed the Free Dining Promotion so that only Deluxe resorts received the Disney Dining Plan that includes a table-service meal per night of stay, now both moderate resorts and value resorts only receive the quick-service dining plan for free and have to pay the difference between the quick-service and standard plans.  Disney may be hoping that they won't need to feed us for free to get us to come, even during hurricane season.  

Wouldn't it be great if I am wrong?   People have been predicting the demise of Free Dining for years and Disney continued to offer it; perhaps they will continue to do so for years to come.  I hope so!
