Historical Dates for Disney Free Dining

Disney Free Dining Packages

One of the most popular discounted Disney packages in recent years has been the Disney’s Free Dining promotion. This is not a standard package offering, but rather a special promotion that Disney has offered at least once yearly for the past half-dozen years. The promotion consists of Disney’s basic Magic Your Way vacation package (room and tickets) with a Free Disney Dining Plan included for travel at select times of year. Typically, those that book a value resort get a free Quick Service plan and those that book a moderate or above resort get the regular Disney Dining Plan. For the difference in price between the free Dining Plan being offered and a more comprehensive Dining Plan, packages can be upgraded. This is a fantastic deal and everyone hopes Disney will continue offering it for years to come.

Below are the dates the Free Dining package has been offered since 2010. You can also check our Current Code and Discount page to locate all recent promotions offered by Disney.

Disney offers other types of discounted packages for the general public for select dates throughout the year. Check our Current Code and Discount page to see all the Disney discounted package offers for the General Public as they are released. One can’t always assume that free is best. Disney routinely offers room discounts up to 30 or 35 percent off. Depending on the category of hotel you book and the number of people in your party, a discounted room package may work out cheaper than Free Dining. Contact a Disney-specialized travel agency to assist with your reservation if you are unsure of how to do the math.
