How to get FREE Dining for KIDS at Walt Disney World!


  1. Jeff says

    I have been going to Disney world for the 17 years and staying on at value motels.
    I had 4 generations of my family last time I went
    But now sorry to say but at the change with the tickets and the price of them.
    Charging to park at the hotel
    If you stay at the higher priced hotels you get the special Peeks i guess disney has lost a family for good

  2. Margaret says

    Do the parents have to buy the same meal plan?? Is it quick service or the table service meal plan?? Thank you

  3. DFB Sarah says

    Margaret, all guests on the reservation must be on the same package (although at this point, Free Dining for adults hasn’t been announced…yet), and all three Disney Dining Plans — Quick Service, Standard, and Deluxe — are eligible.

  4. DFB Sarah says

    Cindy, the details specify 3 day/night, but we would expect that, yes, you could apply the Kids Free Dining to a longer trip.

  5. DizzyMom says

    That is the worst deal I’ve ever seen. Illusion of a deal is more like it. I’d do better to pay for meals for everyone out of pocket than the high prices of adult dining plan for everyone else and get free kids meals, not that I have kids that age anymore. Which is another problem with this ‘deal’ only the smallest of children get it. It’s bad enough that I pay such high prices for my eleven year olds to get in and stand in lines for half a day. But being forced to pay adult prices for everything and get overlooked for deals, ugh. Not very magical, excluding the majority of customers. Pass, but thank you for the heads up dear food bloggers.

  6. Samantha says

    I have a trip booked 6/3-6/7 and I did not use a TA, would I call Disney directly to see if this can be applied to my current trip I’ve already paid for??

  7. DFB Sarah says

    Lauren, as far as I know, there’s no promo code. One would want to request it when calling for reservations — keeping in mind that it has limited availability and specific requirements for dates and resorts.

  8. Kelly says

    We are taking advantage of the dining plan in September. We have a 2 year old. What does she get as far as dining?

  9. DFB Sarah says

    Kelly, two-year-olds (and any kiddos under three) are not included in the DDP, but if you use table service credits for buffets or all-you-care-to-enjoy dining, you can get a plate for your toddler. At quick service, you’ll have to pay out of pocket or share.
