Fall 2009 WDW Free Disney Dining

Travel Dates: September 27 – December 17, 2009

Walt Disney World has announced an extension of the the “Free Dining” promotion for 2009. With the “Free Dining” promotion, Disney resort guests who book a Magic Your Way package that includes both your Disney resort room and your Magic Your Way park passes will receive one of the Disney Dining plan add-ons for free for all guest three and older in your party. There are a few requirements:

  • You must book at least a three night stay, and your stay cannot be longer than 10 nights
  • You must include at least a one day Magic Your Way base ticket

There is one small change with this promotion, from past free dining offers.

  • Book a minimum three night stay at at Disney Value resort, and receive the Quick Service dining plan included for free with your stay.
  • Book a minimum three night or longer stay at a Disney Moderate, Deluxe or Villa resort, and receive the Disney Dining plan included for free with your stay.

As it was in the past, this year Disney World guests will also be able to book the “Free Dining”, and upgrade to the Disney Deluxe Dining for the normal price difference, which is $32 for adults and $10 for children three to nine. The Wine and Dine option is also available at full price to add onto either the Basic or Deluxe dining plans. If you book your stay at a Disney Value resort, you have the option to upgrade to the Disney Dining plan by paying the difference, which is $10 for adults and $2 for children three to nine, or you may upgrade to the Disney Deluxe Dining for the prices difference, which is $42 for adults and $12 for children three to nine.

Availability is extremely limited, and must be booked by September 26, 2009. There are some black out dates, November 25 – 29, 2009. It does not appear currently that the black out dates block you from booking  travel during those dates, but more of a warning that availability is extremely limited. It appears that all suites have been excluded from this offer, though all resorts, including value resorts are included. The family suites at All-Star Music are included in the discount, though you will receive the Quick Service dining plan.

One thing to note that while the last date of travel is December 17, the free dining will be included for your entire stay, including dates past December 17, as long as you check in December 17 or before. As usual, this is subject to availability.

To book this special Walt Disney World “Free Dining” vacation package, please contact our great sponsor Mouseketrips.

    Question: I already booked my family vacation at Disney and paid the deposit, but we booked at All Star Movies with the Magic Your Way package, and we chose the quick service dining option. Check in is Nov 20 and check out is Nov 30. We got a 9 day park ticket package with water parks. How can I adjust my package to reflect the free dining or upgrade to deluxe dining?

      Yes, you will need to contact Disney directly, or whoever booked your reservation for you. Just have them apply the free dining discount. Shouldn’t be a problem, based on availability of course.

    Excellent! I booked directly through Disney’s website (an experience unto itself), but I will call them tonight with my confirmation number and have them explain the options that are available to me.

    One quick question: since we’ll be staying during the blackout period (but check in and out are before and after the blackout dates), do we still qualify for the free dining during the 25th to 29th?

    This site is the best thing to happen to my vacation!

      We have not noticed any problems with the blackout period, only some limited availability. I just checked Movies for your dates, both standard and preferred rooms are available, you should have no problem changing it.

      You cannot book the dining plan for only part of your vacation, it must be for every night, so same holds true for Disney, if the discount is available for the free dining, you get it for every night of your stay.
