2018 Walt Disney World Free Dining packages are available to be booked as of this morning!
All of the details are in this post, but here is the quick-and-dirty version:
Dates you can check-in and qualify for Free Dining are:
August 20 – Septemeber 29
November 24 – November 27
December 7 – December 23
You must book a minimum four-night stay and four-day park hopper tickets this year (increases from past years).
Same from last year is that you get a Quick Service dining plan with a Value or Moderate resort reservation, and standard Disney Dining Plan at the Deluxe level (read my post on why that’s not a good deal!).
Excluded resorts appear to be Little Mermaid rooms at Art of Animation, 3-bedroom villas, campsites, All-Star Movies, Port Orleans French Quarter, and Port Orleans Riverside.
Get a reservation FAST if you are interested because rooms are limited and will go quickly!
And if you missed it, you can listen to the first episode of The Budget Mouse podcast here which is all about Free Dining! I am speculating in the episode but everything turned out as expected (except that you can check in on August 20th instead of the 21st).
