Every spring Disney fandom waits ever so impatiently for the announcement of the fall free dining promotion. This wildly popular offer has become a mainstay in the fall and while it has changed over the years it can still be a cost savings… if used correctly. This year’s plan did include some minor tweaks such as Moderate resort hotels now getting the quick-service dining plan as opposed to previous year’s when they receive the regular dining plan.
Since this is a FREE DINING offer let’s start with the dining aspect of the deal. Where you are staying will dictate what dining package you will get. (However, you can upgrade your dining package.)
With a Disney dining plan, every person in your party can enjoy 2 meals and 2 snacks per person.
If your package includes a Disney Dining Plan, you’ll enjoy one quick-service meal, one table-service meal and two snacks per person, per night of your stay. Table-service meals can be redeemed for Character Dining, Signature Dining and dinner shows. Plus, each person in your party gets a refillable mug.
If your package includes a Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan, you’ll enjoy 2 quick-service meals and 2 snacks per person, per night of your stay. Plus, each person in your party gets a refillable mug.
If you feel these plans will not meet the needs of your traveling party, you can upgrade to the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan which includes three meals and two snacks per person, per night of your stay. Plus, each person in your party gets a refillable mug.
