Disney World Free Dining is Back for Select 2019 Dates!

Despite my own personal speculation that free dining could have disappeared this year, Disney has just officially released dates for the offer. As always, availability is limited for this offer and you should book as soon as possible to try and take advantage of free dining if it is the best option for you and your vacation planning needs.

This years debut appears to have arrived a bit earlier that usual and is available for arrivals most nights July 5 through September 30, 2019.

Here are the details that have been shared with us:

-You can enjoy a FREE dining plan when you purchase a non-discounted 5-night/6-day vacation package that includes a room at a select Disney Resort hotel and a ticket with a Park Hopper Option or Park Hopper Plus Option.

-This offer must be booked by February 10th of 2019 and the package includes:
  • Your resort room
  • Theme park ticket(s) with a Park Hopper Option or Park Hopper Plus Option
  • Dining Plan (Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan with Value and Moderate Resort hotel packages; Disney Dining Plan with Deluxe and Deluxe Villa Resort hotel packages)

As usual, select resorts and room types will be excluded from this offer. Offer excludes the following room types: 3-bedroom villas, campsites, Cabins at Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, Bungalows at Polynesian Villas & Bungalows, Little Mermaid Standard Rooms at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. These are the typical, expected, exclusions and don’t appear to be overly different that previous years. 

When booking this offer, be sure to weigh your options and other booking rates that may be available. The free dining offer isn’t always your most budget friendly offer but if you are interested in booking it, act fast. If you want help weighing your options, we always recommend Destinations to Travel (quote request form below) simply because it’s who we’ve used and they share this information with us first time an time again so we can relay it over to you! 
Good luck in the booking process no matter how you choose to book your vacation. Be aware, every time this offer debuts the Disney reservation system backs up and backs up quickly. Be patient and you’ll eventually get though. 
This was a quick article but hopefully it helps some of you all out in booking your next Disney vacation.
