Greetings fellow Mouse Fans!
"Will Free Dining be offered again this year?" I must answer that question at least a few times a week this time of year. This is because historically speaking, the past few years a Free Dining Promotion has been announced in early April for late summer / early fall dates. And we are well within the 180 day mark for making dining reservations for this time period which always seems to generate some buzz as well.
The answer is that I honestly have no idea. Disney’s current "gift card" promotion can only be booked through March 27, 2010 so there certainly is a possibility that another promotion could be announced after that. But there are simply no guarantees IF there will be a promotion and IF there is, WHAT it will be! Tryig to guess what Disney will do next has been the cause of more gray hair in the travel planning community than anything else with the possible exceptions of weather crises.
My advice is that if you are planning a trip for this fall, by all means book it! Then cross your fingers and hope. But please keep in mind that even if Free Dining is announced again this year, this may or may not be the best deal for your family. Ir’s important to explore all the different possibilities and this is where your favorite Mouse Fan Travel Planner comes in!
Be well and make magic wherever you go!
