2010 Disney Free Dining Promotion Extended Through December 21, 2010

Limited Availability & Black-out Dates Apply

Disney has extended this year’s Free Dining Promotion to guests booking a Disney vacation package on select dates for check-ins through December 21, 2010.  There are a lot of blackout dates but this is a great deal, if you are able to arrive within the promotional dates.  Your departure date can extend into the blackout dates.

Book a qualifying vacation package at a Disney moderate or deluxe resort and receive the Standard / Plus Dining Plan at no extra cost.   This dining plan includes 1 counter-service meal credit, 1 table-service meal credit, and 1 snack credit per person, per night of stay.   Receiving this dining plan free of charge saves a family of four about $107 per night of stay, based on the regular cost of this dining plan. You can upgrade to the Deluxe dining plan and just pay the difference between the standard and the deluxe plans.  Contact us for details.

Book a qualifying vacation package at a Disney Value Resort (All-Star or Pop Century resorts) and receive the Disney Quick-Service Dining plan at no extra cost.  The quick-service plan provides two quick/counter-service meals + 2 snacks per person, per night of stay.   Receiving this plan at no extra cost saves a family of four about $85 per night of stay.   You can upgrade to the Standard or Deluxe dining plans by paying the difference between the quick service dining plan and your preferred dining plan.  Contact us for details.

  • Travel Dates:  August 15 – October 7, 2010 / October 22 – 28 / November 12 – 18 / November 27 – December 2 / December 10 – 22, 2010.
  • Minimum Requirements:  Must purchase a package that includes three (3) Consecutive nights stay at a Disney Resort + at least 2-Day Disney Magic Your Way theme park Tickets.
  • Must book by August 14th, 2010.   There are a limited number of promotional packages available at each resort so book early to get your first choice in travel dates and resort.
  • You must pay the $200 deposit at the time of booking with the balance due 45 days prior to arrival.
  • Suites and campsites are excluded from this offer.  The Cabins at the Fort Wilderness campground are included in the promotion.
  • If you do not have us book this for you, be sure to tell the booking agent that you want the free dining promotion.   They do not automatically apply promotions to new or existing reservations – you must specifically ask for the discount.
  • Existing reservations falling within these days can be altered (subject to availability) to reflect the free dining promotion.  Call and ask to have the discount applied – it will not happen automatically. 
  • Trip Insurance – The travel dates for this promotion fall within Florida’s hurricane season; consider purchasing trip insurance (either through Disney, your airline, or another insurance provider), especially if you have non-refundable, non-transferable airline tickets. Trip insurance is not usually a good value if you are driving.
  • Dining Reservations – Book your dining reservations immediately.  The free dining promotion has a serious impact on the number of available dining reservations and some restaurants may already be fully booked at certain times.    Remember that we book dining reservations on your behalf (subject to availability) when you book your Disney vacation through Build  A Better Mouse Trip.
  • In addition to the free dining promotions, you can receive vacation planning help at no additional cost when you book your Disney vacation through Build  A Better Mouse Trip.  We help with establishing a “Best Days” itinerary, help with dining reservations, and provide either a subscription to www.tourguidemike.com, www.touringplans.com, or a 2010 Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World (guidebook) to help you with touring plans that keep you ahead of the crowds and out of the long lines.  Contact us today to book your vacation.

    We are taking our whole family, 12 members ,down to Disney World, as a Grand Gathering 12/04/10 to 12/11/10. We were told by everyone, travel agent, disney books, etc. that this was the best time to go down to Disney World because the crowds were low. We have been watching all of the promotions being posted and for some reason, our dates have been blacked out of the 40% off room rates and now the free dining plan!! What is going on that week? Is it going to be so crowded that we won’t be able to enjoy ourselves? Why does every other week but ours get these deals? We booked this vacation nine months ago and booked four preferred rooms, are we going to be able to get these rooms close together when we check in? In these economic times, any of these promotions would have been wonderful to have taken advantage of!

      I’m really sorry that you don’t get the free dining while you’re there. They typically tape the ABC Christmas parade that weekend and there are all the Pop Warner events over at the Wide World of Sports complex – those two events are my best guess. You should also register on the official Disney World website – http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/ – and request the free video. You may also want to use their itinerary/trip planner function. Although this isn’t a sure bet, they’ve been sending out a lot of PIN codes. If you receive a PIN code for your travel dates, it can usually be applied to up to three rooms. We may also see a room discount of some kind released down the road a bit. They have both a “Free Dining” and a room discount for the Aug. 15 – Oct. 2 timeframe – hopefully we’ll see multiple discounts for fall & Winter.
