There is a single promotion that causes the hearts of Walt Disney World lovers to go pitter-patter: Free Dining. Historically offered in the fall, this special offer is the creme de la creme of Walt Disney World promotions. And it is back for the fall of 2014.
Those individuals with a Chase Disney Visa will be available to book the Free Dining promotion beginning today, May 2nd, with the general public offer coming online on Wednesday, May 7th.
The dates for this offer are for guests traveling between:
- August 31 – October 3
- October 26 – November 1
- November 9 – November 20
- December 12 – 23 (I am really, really surprised by how close to Christmas this set comes!)
In the past, as long as your resort reservation began during a Free Dining window, it was extended through your entire stay. Now, that also used to be the case for the Room Only offers but changed last year, so here is hoping that Free Dining doesn’t go that route!
The Free Dining promotion will include Disney’s Quick-Service Dining Plan for those guests staying at a qualilfying value resort, and the regular Disney Dining Plan for those guests staying at qualifying moderate, deluxe and deluxe villa resorts.
