News! Changes to Disney World Tables in Wonderland Dining Discounts for 2014

We’ve got some news about one of Disney World’s popular dining discounts!

Tables in Wonderland, Walt Disney World’s fee-based dining discount program offered to Florida residents, Annual Passholders, and Disney Vacation Club members, is a great way to save money if you are a frequent diner at Walt Disney World.

The program offers 20% savings on food and beverages, including alcoholic beverages, at more than 100 Walt Disney World restaurants.

Today, we’re getting news of an update to restaurants that will either stop offering the Tables in Wonderland discount in the near future, or will be subject to more blackout dates when using the card.

For Your Kitchen

Everyone needs a little Disney in their kitchen. Whether you’re the “subtle” Mickey Mouse type or the “shout it from the rooftops” Disney fan, we’ve got some awesome goodies for you…

Kitchen Canister

I’ve NEVER seen this Disney Kitchen Canister before, and I love it. It has a Mickey chalkboard that allows you to write the contents in chalk! What?! Awesome.

And the sweet little spoon is a bonus! I need a whole set — one for flour and for sugar and for tea and…and…and…(COOKIES!) :-)

Pot Holder and Oven Mitt Set

I get it. You don’t necessarily want a giant Cinderella Castle painted on your kitchen wall. That’s cool, and this Pot Holder and Oven Mitt Set can easily remind you of the Happiest Place on Earth without cramping your style!

Gourmet Mickey Mouse Pot Holder and Mitt Set

The Wizard

Seriously? I cannot wait for this film to come out. I mean, come on. I played Dorothy in my kindergarten production of Wizard of Oz…it’s like fate or something. Anyway, be the first one at your office to sport some Oz awesomeness with these…

Wicked Witch of the West Mug

If you’re a bit testy first thing in the morning, this Wicked Witch of the West Mug might be just the chalice for you.

Free Dining in Disney World: Rumors!

Our friends over at Touring Plans are hearing wacky rumors about Disney World Discounts, which include dining plans, coming round the bend!

We know that Disney has offered “free dining” in the Fall for a couple of years now, and this might be 2010’s version:

We’ve heard it will appear for Disney Visa cardholders around April 29, and the general public May 2. Travel dates should begin around August 15 …

We’re hearing conflicting details about the dining offer itself. Two sources says the offer will be scaled back (one says “drastically”) from last year. … However, one other source thinks the free dining offer will be the same as last year’s

Reports are coming in that some Disney Visa Cardholders are getting emails and pin codes for free Quick Service dining plan with Magic Your Way packages between March 14th and October 2nd. Others are saying they’ve been able to book free Quick Service dining plan with travel dates starting in June.
