Disney announced that a new 2012 Free Dining Plan Promotion is now available to all guests during select nights this fall with special Magic Your Way Packages.
Free Dining is one of the more popular discounts at Walt Disney World, and it offers guests the opportunity to add the Disney Dining Plan to their full-price room and ticket packages at no additional cost. Guests purchasing a package that includes a Value Resort stay can receive the Quick Service Dining Plan, and those purchasing a package that includes a Moderate, Deluxe, or Deluxe Villa Resort stay can receive the Standard Dining Plan. Upgrades to other Dining Plans are available for an additional fee.
The offer is only available for guests who are checking in during the following dates:
- September 30, 2012 – October 4, 2012
- October 19, 2012 – November 1, 2012
- November 9, 2012 – November 15, 2012
- November 23, 2012 – November 29, 2012
- December 10, 2012 – December 13, 2012
There are a few things to keep in mind, however, about this specific offer. First, guests are required to stay for 3 nights minimum and purchase a minimum 2-day park ticket for each guest staying in the room. Also, the Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort, 3-bedroom villas, and the Little Mermaid Standard View Rooms at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort are not included in this offer.
Guests who wish to book this deal for their vacation must do so by September 29, 2012.
