Although there is no official release from Walt Disney World Resort yet, several sources have rumoured Disney’s popular free dining promotion to be available for booking April 25th. Recently, some have spotted specific details of the promotion on the Air Canada Vacations website when searching for specific Disney resorts, which mentioned the following:
For a limited time, Guests who purchase a minimum three (3), maximum fourteen (14) night stay in combination with a minimum 3-Day Magic Your Way ticket with Park Hopper and/or Water Park Fun & More options will receive the Disney Dining Plan FREE.
Valid for booking made between April 25, 2016 through August 31, 2016
Valid for arrivals August 14 – October 1, 2016, November 15 – November 21, 2016; November 26 – November 28, 2016; December 10 – December 21, 2016
Minimum three (3), maximum fourteen (14) night stay required
Must be booked with a minimum 2-Day Magic Your Way ticket that includes the Park Hopper and/or Water Park Fun & More options
This offer cannot be booked with a Magic Your Way Base Ticket
Guests may also upgrade to the Deluxe Dining Plan at a discounted rate
Offer discount is on the Disney Dining Plans only. There is no discount on the room rate or Magic Your Way tickets
To be eligible for this promotion, please select the Free Dine Room Category • Discounted is reflected in the rates
NOTE: Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – French Quarter is not part of this offer. Riverside is only available for the period of Aug 14 to Oct 1.
Again, the above information has not been officially confirmed. However, I think it’s fair to say Free Dining will definitely be back this year and the details will be announced very shortly by Disney. Best advice is to book early if you’re interested in this promotion. You can always get ahead of the game by booking your reservation now and then applying the discount once the promotion is available. Not sure if Free Dining is a good deal for you?

Good luck everyone!
