Are you considering a Walt Disney World Resort vacation in late summer or fall? Then we may have just made your Monday by announcing that our Free Dine offer is back!

You may now get a free dining plan when you purchase a non-discounted 5-night/6-day Walt Disney Travel Co. package that includes a room at a select Disney Resort hotel and ticket with Park Hopper Option. The offer must be booked April 25, 2016-July 8, 2016, for arrival dates between August 23-October 1; November 15-21; November 26-28, or December 10-21, 2016.

And there’s never been a better time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort, with new nighttime entertainment on the way at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, not to mention the return of guest-favorite annual events this fall, including the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.

If you’re not familiar with our dining plans, the Disney Dining Plan is offered with vacation packages at select Moderate, Deluxe and Deluxe Villa Resorts and is honored at more than 150 select Walt Disney World Resort restaurants. The Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan, offered with vacation packages at our Value Resorts, includes meals and snacks at more than 100 dining locations.

  • I wish DVC members could benefit from this!

  • A little late to the party here, but something needs to be done in the future to resolve the issues with the phones. I had two phones redialing non-stop for 37 minutes from 6:00 AM Central. Once I got connected, I was quoted a 20 minute wait. I waited over 90 more minutes until I talked to someone and the dining promotion was already gone for the Poly. I was on from the start and luck should not factor into the equation of whether or not you get in. This was very frustrating as it derailed honemoon plans.

  • Yup, same here, got the email from Chase for our Disney card and 20 minutes later after I got my kids to school the offer was not available for the Sports resort online. Tried to call all day and when I finally got through, at 5:30pm, was told nope, sold out!

  • I was told this morning that it will cost me $200 more to add free dining to my current package. So much for free. My room must have been discounted due to the fact I was moved to a villa since there were no woods view rooms due to construction at Wilderness Lodge.

  • So that means that they can honor their promotion because their phone lines are down. I have my reservations done already but I can’t get through

  • This sounds like a great deal. How many people can be included? We hope to travel to Disney this summer.

  • Say it ain’t so! Free dining hotel rooms are all gone two days into the promotion??? That’s not very magical. Come on Disney – show us your magic and fix this!

  • I finally got through late last night to apply this offer to my existing reservation,just to be told they are all gone? I’m very puzzled, since I had been told during reservation months ago that they would honor any offers and all I have to do is call and have it applied. I’ve mentioned this numerous times on the phone, but he kept saying sorry they are all gone. I’m wondering who was right. I’m still very confused, but won’t let this ruin my 25th anniversary trip now.

  • Your offer broke the phone company! Same story on the website. “Sorry, all circuits are busy now”. I have already made reservations within the arrival date. Typically, they will let you apply a new “deal” to your old reservation–yes?

  • No October dates 🙁 very sad really wanted to go last week of October but alas no 🙁 release some for October!!!!

  • I was so happy to see that the Free Dining would be available while we are there, until I discovered the resort and room we have booked will not be included. I hope Disney makes the Free Dining available to any resort and all room types during the time periods indicated. That would be incredible!

  • Can you use a military discount on top of the free dining promotion?

  • I was excited that the promotion was starting early this year. But I’ve been hitting redial since 7:45 AM when I first heard the promotion was live and have yet to even get through to be on hold. I do hope Disney adds more rooms!

  • GM 🙂
    super excited about free dinning. but confused I see u wrote for value resorts it’s just quick service.? is this new? I’ve stayed at pop century and had dining with table service…

  • Just call to WDW to add the promotion and told me the POP was excluided . I am very disapointed been waiting a lot to stay there with my family. We already know music and muvies Last year. This We were going to know POP but they change it to music insted, . We were on the phone early to have a chance. Insted they say IA not in the promotion . Very very disapointed

  • There doesn’t appear to be many rooms or resorts in the late Sep option. Will there be more rooms added?
