Disney Announces Free Dining Plan at Walt Disney World

One of the best times to visit Disney is when they are running their free dining promotion. Today Disney announced their package: New Memories Vacation Package that will offer free dining.

Guests who stay 5-nights/6-days at select Disney Resorts hotels between August 28th and September 24th will be eligible for the promotion.   The free Disney Dining Plan is for those who choose to stay at a Disney Moderate, Disney Deluxe or Disney Deluxe Villa Resort hotels. If you choose to stay at a Disney Value Resort you will be eligible for the free Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan

Disney Dining Plan: Choose meals and snacks at over 100 select Walt Disney World restaurants, including some with Character Dining. Each day during your package stay, each person over 3 years of age will receive:

  • 1 Table-Service Meal
  • 1 Quick-Service Meal
  • 1 Snack

Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan

  • 2 Quick-Service Meals
  • 2 Snacks
  • One Resort Refillable Drink Mug (refillable only at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel)

We have used both dining plans and my family actually prefers the quick-service dining plan as we are not tied down to certain table reservation times. However, if you are looking for an affordable way for a character dining experience the primary Disney Dining Plan may be the way to go.

To compare how much you will be saving here are some Disney Dining Plan Facts:

  • The standard DDP was $41.99 per adult per night and has been bumped to $45.99 for the value and regular seasons. The rates for kids ages 3-9 remained the same at $11.99 per night.
  • Peak season 2011 rates will apply February 17-26, March 11-April 30, June 3-August 13 and December 21-31. Adult rates rose from $46.99 per night to $47.99. The nightly rate for children age 3-9 remained the same at $12.99 per night.
