Will Walt Disney World Offer Fall Free Dining for 2017?


For the past number of years, the Walt Disney World Resort has offered a Fall Free Dining Promotion, offering one of the dining plans for free, based on the level of resort (Value, Moderate, or Deluxe) that you stayed at.

It also offered you the option of paying to upgrade the Free Dining Plan you received to one of the higher dining plans.

Originally, the Free Dining Promo was brought out as an incentive to fill the resorts in what was typically a slower season.

Over the years this need has gradually gone away.

Now guests begin booking fall vacations 6-8 months in advance, guessing on dates, in hopes of Free Dining being offered.

Also, as we have seen in the past 4 years, The Annual Epcot Food & Wine Festival, Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP), and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party (MVMCP), have become EXTREMELY POPULAR, with the past 3 years also seeing additional dates for these events being added each year!

With guests flocking to these events in greater numbers each year, many people keep wondering when or if the Fall Free Dining Promo will finally come to an end?

Disney has already tested a “Free Quick Service Meal” per day promotion for summer and that sold out quickly.

Right now the RUMOR MILLS are running amok that Fall free Dining will be offered starting Monday, April 24, 2017, but NO OFFICIAL WORD FROM DISNEY has been released. These are just RUMORS until it actually happens.

Since even Travel Agents don’t get advance notice, our agents at Destinations with Character Travel will be manning their phones and computers very early on the morning of April 24, 2017 to see if the promotion is released, trying to get the promotion for their already booked guests for Fall.

If you would like to be on our list, send an email to: destwithchar@comcast.net, with the subject line: FREE DINING

In the email, list your name, number of adults, number of children with ages, preferred resort, and your preferred dates.
