On Oct. 26, Walt Disney World extended the deadline for booking its very popular “Free Dining” offer, available in early 2012.
Walt Disney World “Free Dining” is a special offer that includes, at no additional cost, one of the versions of the Disney Dining Plan for guests who book a Magic Your Way (MYW) Vacation Package.
Guests may be eligible for Disney Free Dining if they book a trip through Dec. 17, 2011.
2012 Free Disney Dining dates (arrival)
- Jan. 8 – 12
- Jan. 21 – Feb. 2
- Feb. 11 – Feb. 16
- March 3 – March 8
- March 24 – March 29
Guests who stay at a Disney Value Resort are eligible for the free Quick Service Dining Plan (QSDP). Guests who stay at Moderate, Deluxe or Deluxe Villa Resort are eligible for the free standard Disney Dining Plan (DDP).
Walt Disney World had previously announced “Free Dining” dates for 2011 and 2012, with a booking deadline of Oct. 29, 2011. The new booking deadline applies to travel in 2012. Guests still have two days to book Disney Free Dining for 2011.
MYW Vacation Package include, at a minimum, non-discounted room at an official Disney resort and theme-park admission tickets. All guests who stay in the same room must be on the same MYW Vacation Package. Certain minimum lengths of stay or ticket purchases apply.
Note: Disney will offer a sample length of stay, usually a price for a four-night and five-day vacation, to indicate savings. Guests may book other lengths of stay with the Free Dining offer.
Walt Disney World “Free Dining” may be made through Walt Disney World Reservations, by calling (407) 939-1880, or by using the services of a Disney Travel Agent.
Guests should use the codes P49 if booking a travel package with a Disney Value Resort or F4M if booking a package with a Disney Moderate, Deluxe or Deluxe Villa Resort. Again, to be eligible for Free Dining, guests must need to book their MYW Vacation Package through Dec. 17, 2011.
Walt Disney World “Free Dining” restrictions remain the same as with earlier special offers, including those mentioned in this Free Disney Dining article. Be sure to check directly with the Walt Disney World website or a travel agent for all requirements and restrictions.
