2018 Disney World Free Dining: Possible Details and Dates

It’s that time of year again – time to start placing your bets on when the 2018 Free Disney Dining Plan will be announced. We all know how popular free dining has become in recent years and we’re betting that this year won’t be any different!

The Disney World free dining offer includes a free Disney Dining Plan with the purchase of a Walt Disney World Resort hotel and ticket package. The “free” part of the name pulls you in, but just remember that you’ll be paying full price for your resort hotel room when you book free dining. And this year – for the first time ever – alcohol is included in the Disney Dining Plan, which might be a game changer as far as the offer is concerned!

In the past, free dining was announced for less crowded (non-peak) times during the year – late summer, early fall, and early winter (before the holiday season). But let’s be honest, there’s really no such thing as a non-peak season anymore. So if an offer comes out this year, we’re expecting the options will include more summer dates. [Read more…]

Grocery Delivery Available at Disney Vacation Club Resorts

One of our favorite things about staying in a Disney Vacation Club villa is the inclusion of a kitchen where we can whip up a quick meal any time of the day.

And while the DVC resorts do sell a variety of groceries in the resort’s gift shop, many guests choose to order groceries from off-site stores including Garden Grocer.com or have non-perishable items shipped to the hotel.

But did you know that you can order groceries from the DVC resort hotels and have them delivered to your villa? [Read more…]
