  • Quick Service Dining Plan: 2 counter service meal credits (WITH alcoholic or non alcoholic beverages) + 2 snack credits per night
  • Dining Plan: 1 counter service meal credit (WITH alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages) + 1 table service meal credit + 2 snack credits per night
  • Deluxe Dining Plan: 3 meal credits + 2 snack credits per night
    • Additionally, a refillable resort mug is included in every plan for the length of the package.

About Free Dining: 

Disney releases a LIMITED amount of rooms eligible for the Free Dining Package. Free dining is a promotion that usually happens during a "lower-crowd" season at Disney World, like September or early November.

The free dining promotion is a great way to save money on your vacation and feel like your vacation is "all inclusive". This promotion can't be combined with other discounts. It does pay to crunch numbers and see if this promotion is the best deal for you and your traveling party.
