UPDATE: Rumors confirmed! Free Dining is now available for select dates October 2, 2011-March 31, 2012. See Details Here!
Rumors are swirling that the Disney World Free Dining promotion will be back this Fall and extend possibly into 2012. Booking is rumored to begin August 3rd.
As regular readers know, we usually don’t publish rumors without credible sources, so please understand that this is not corroborated by the Walt Disney Company in any way at the moment, and it is truly just a rumor currently.
The Free Dining promotion offers guests booking a vacation package the opportunity to add a Disney Dining Plan on to their package for free as long as they’re booking their room and tickets at standard rack rates.
Disney World Free Dining is already available through September, but should this rumor come to fruition, new dates would start up on October 2nd and include:
October 2, 2011 – October 8, 2011
October 23, 2011 – November 5, 2011
November 13, 2011 – November 19, 2011
November 27, 2011 – December 3, 2011
December 11, 2011 – December 17, 2011
Upgrades would be available for a fee, and a minimum stay of 3 nights as well as base tickets for the park would be required. No word about a required photopass book.
According to Disney message boards, some guests have already been able to apply the Free Dining option to their vacation packages for the Fall by calling Disney reservations and asking if there are any Free Dining codes available during their stay.
Usually these rumors are pretty legit, so if you do have plans for a trip this Fall or Winter, consider being up-and-at-’em on the phone at 7am ET this Wednesday just in case.
