It’s back. The promotion that just won’t die. Yep, Free Dining at Disney World is back for the fall. (At least that’s what the rumors say.)
Supposedly, starting tomorrow Disney Visa Card holders will be able to book Free Dining at Disney World for select dates for the rest of the year. Then on Thursday or Friday, it will be available for the general public. I was a bit shocked when I saw the dates. See for yourself and try to figure out what shocked me …
The dates –
- September 29 – October 2
- October 18 – November 2
- November 11 – 23
- December 12 – 22
So what’s the big shock? The first week in December. (It’s because Dad proclaimed it the best week in 2013 to visit Disney World.) I’m also a bit shocked that it runs so late in December. The 22nd is getting awful close to Christmas.
The details are a 3-night minimum stay is required and there’s a 14-night maximum. Every guest must have at least a 2-day park ticket (purchased with the package). Certain hotels and rooms are excluded (Art of Animation, All Star Movies, Port Orleans – French Quarter, Ft. Wilderness Campground campsites, 3-bedroom villas)
The Value Resort get the Quick Service Plan (which can be upgraded to the regular plan for $19 for adults and $3 per child), all the rest get the regular Dining Plan.
More detail will be available tomorrow.
If you are looking to go to Disney World this fall, it’s time to get your trip started. Go ahead and get on the list right now. Just go over and let Dad’s partners at Destinations to Travel get your trip started today. They can go ahead and put your name on the list so first thing tomorrow or Thursday morning they’ll call and get your room reserved. What are you waiting for?
This really may be your last chance to get Free Dining at Disney World. I know, I’ve been proclaiming it dead for years, but some day it will be gone forever. Trust me.
UPDATE: No Disney Visa Club offer, but keep the faith. Even the Disney Cast Members are finally starting to say call back later in the week. Looks like Thursday will be a big day!
UPDATE #2: It’s here! There are some little changes (like the whole Art of Animation is excluded) PLUS a room only discount was announced for the fall. Get all the details here …
