2017 Fall Free Dining & Room Discounts at Disney World

Oh, it’s true. The rumors we’ve been hearing for the past couple of weeks have finally been verified by Walt Disney World: 2017 free dining is happening!

This year it looks a bit different than years past, so if you want in on free dining here’s what you need to know.

2017 Free Dining Details for Walt Disney World Vacations Released

 

Who Is Eligible for Free Dining?

Guests booked on-site with a package that includes a minimum of 3-night stay (maximum of 14) and 2-day park hoppers during select dates in August, September, November, and December. Select resorts are excluded (see offer details below).

October dates have also been excluded this year, which, if you’ve been in October lately should not surprise you.

Travel dates:

  • August 21 through September 30, 2017
  • November 14 through November 20, 2017
  • November 25 through November 27, 2017
  • December 8 through December 23, 2017

 

What Do You Get?

You get food that you don’t have to pay for, hence, FREE DINING.

I’m hilarious. But really: it’s one of the most popular promotions Disney puts out every year for a reason. You can add a Disney Dining Plan to your package (see minimum requirements above) for free during this promotion.

‘Ohana bread pudding is the BOMB DOT COM y’all!

This year the free dining promo gives the Quick Service Plan to eligible value and moderate resorts, and the Deluxe resorts get the free Disney Dining Plan. This is a change from previous years: please note. Moderates will only be able to get the Quick Service plan for free.
