Free Dining Plan Being Offered at Walt Disney World!

Dining at Whispering Canyon Cafe at Wilderness Lodge
Free Dining at Walt Disney World has been announced!  If you are willing to travel between September 2 and September 25, stay at least 3 nights at select resorts, and purchase a minimum of a 2 day base ticket, then you can dine for free during your stay!

Guests selecting a value resort will receive free Quick Service Dining Plan and those choosing a moderate or deluxe resort will receive the Basic Dining Plan for free.  The Quick Service, also known as Counter Service, includes 2 counter service credits, a snack credit per person per night and a free refillable mug.  The Basic Dining Plan includes 1 counter service credit, one table service credit, one snack credit per person per night and a refillable mug.  Plans can also be upgraded by paying the price difference between the plans per person per night of stay.

This is a great offer and can save guests a lot of money.  In addition, September is considered a “value” season, so resort rates are at their lowest.  This also means crowds are thinner, hence the reason Disney is making this offer.

We have been able to take advantage of this offer during this time of year twice—September of 2007 and September of 2008.  Our travel agent sent me an email on Thursday when the offer became available to the general public—it was available for Disney Visa holders the week prior.  She asked if we were tempted.  Of course we were tempted, but since we are traveling in July and due to school and work schedules, it would not be feasible for us.  I thought it was great that she thought of us though. 

Since our first visit to Walt Disney World, we have stayed in moderate resorts, so the Basic Dining Plan was part of our offer.  It allowed us to try restaurants that we may not have tried under other circumstances such as Le Cellier—for lunch, Coral Reef, and Tony’s.

If you are considering a trip to Walt Disney World and are available to travel during this time, this offer can’t be beat.  Go ahead, call your travel agent or Disney travel specialist today! 


  1. This is be area disneyland resort is sorely lacking! Although I enjoy the food offered at DLR the dining plan is just not worth it here.

    1. Carolyn,
      I have heard the same thing. . . that the dining plan at DLR is not worth it.

      We are traveling for the first time without a dining plan for our next trip. We will see how it goes!

      Happy Mother's Day!
