2019 Free Dining Is Now Available for Booking
Come and get it! The most popular and sought-after Walt Disney World Resort promotion is now available for booking- Free Dining! These two simple words can send any Disney-goer into a frenzy.
Free Dining is exactly what it sounds like. It is Disney’s promotion which allows guests to include a dining plan with their resort reservation absolutely FREE. Do you know what that means? Free Dole Whips for snacks. Free character dining like the new Storybook Dining with Snow White. And if you decide to combine credits, free steak at the Yachtsman!
Of course, there are requirements in order to obtain such a delicious offer. So feast your eyes and then contact us so we can help you get your free dining plan!
1. Travel Dates
The best way to obtain Free Dining is to be flexible on your travel dates. For 2019 Free Dining, you must check-in on a day that falls between July 5th and September 30th, 2019 (most nights apply).
2. Minimum Stay
The Free Dining promotion requires a minimum 4-night stay at a Walt Disney World Resort. Keep in mind, not all promotions have a requirement like this so it is important to weigh all your options carefully. This is why we recommend using MickeyTravels since their agents can handle all the number crunching for you.
3. Resort Specifications
Do not assume that because your trip falls within the specified travel dates that you will receive a free dining plan. Only certain resorts and room types are included in the Free Dining promotion. For the 2019 Free Dining Promotion guests must be staying at one of the following:
- Disney’s All Star Music Resort
- Disney’s All Star Sports Resort
- Disney’s Art of Animation Resort – Family Suites Only
- Disney’s Pop Century Resort
- Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort
- Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort
- Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside
- Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge

3. Ticket Requirements
Another contingency of the Free Dining promotion is that you must have at least Park Hopper or Park Hopper Plus tickets added onto your package. To “Park Hop” or “not” is a debate for another article, but with the dining plan, it’s nice to know your restaurant selection is nearly limitless!
4. Not All Dining Plans Are Equal
Over the years, the Free Dining offer has evolved. Dining plans are broken into three categories: Quick Service, Disney Dining and Deluxe Dining. This promotion only includes the Quick Service and Disney Dining Plans and each resort category offers a specific plan:
- Value Resort – Quick Service Dining Plan
- Moderate Resort – Quick Service Dining Plan
- Deluxe Resort – Disney Dining Plan
Note: Guests of any resort can upgrade their dining plans to either the Disney Dining or Deluxe Plan by simply paying the difference in cost. We highly recommend upgrading to at least the Disney Dining Plan, but here are some reasons why we love the Deluxe Dining Plan.
5. Keep Calm and Dine On…
Finally, if the 2019 Free Dining promotion doesn’t work out for you, don’t despair! Sometimes you’ll find that you can add a dining plan and save even more money with a different promotion. In addition, sometimes the rooms with the promotions are booked up quickly. Sometimes Disney will release more rooms with the Free Dining offer at a later time. Again, this is another reason we recommend using our preferred MickeyTravels agents who will watch this for you.
