Fall Discounts and Free Dining at Walt Disney World

Editor’s Note:  Today’s blog is from our agent Deb Feaster.  Thanks Deb!

Today Disney World has released two new promotions for those of you traveling between mid-August and the end of September, 2013.

The first offer is for travel dates from August 15 to September 28 and is a room discount.  Rooms booked under this promotion can be upgraded with tickets and the dining plan for a package (they cannot receive free dining though).  Discounts range from 5% to 30% off the room rate and must be booked by July 31, 2013.

The second offer is for free dining!  For arrivals between September 2 and September 25, 2013, you can qualify for a free dining plan with your non-discounted package of at least three nights with at least a two day ticket.  For packages at a value resort, the quick service dining plan would be included at no extra cost.  For packages at moderate, deluxe and deluxe villa resorts, the plus dining plan is included at no extra cost.  You must book this offer by July 31, 2013 as well.

With the free dining offer, you can upgrade your dining plan for the difference in the normal price of the dining plan you are getting for free and the dining plan you would like instead.


Some restrictions do apply and availability is very limited.  Campsites, 3 bedroom villas and Little Mermaid standard rooms at the Art of Animation are excluded from this offer.

Is the Disney Dining Plan Right for You?

With the recent extension of free dining, I’m often asked if the Disney Dining Plan is worth the cost.  My answer?  It depends.  Do you enjoy Disney restaurants, or do you prefer going off-site for a meal or two?  Can you commit to booking dining reservations far in advance, or do you prefer to ‘wing it’?  Will you be staying in a standard Disney room, or a Deluxe Villa?  Here’s my breakdown on the many versions of the Disney Dining Plan:
